8:24 pm
a very bad economic state the economy is actually collapsed gold is one of the few things that has to tend to. know than the senate in the united states has approved legislation to sanction china ever see implementation of a sweeping new security law in hong kong hundreds of people were taken into custody during protests in hong kong on wednesday the new law punishes subversion and what it considers terrorism carries a life sentence u.s. bill will now go to the white house for president donald trump signature let's go to she returns is on capitol hill in washington d.c. and she had one presumes the president will sign this and what will it mean. well we never know what all shot will do until until he does admit unanimous consent amongst democrats and republicans that in both the house and the senate. it's interesting we are seeing various actions being taken by the white house and the
8:25 pm
administration against china already as a result of hong kong the special status of of hong kong is being is being being changed and that about affect certain trade issues involving high tech material dual use material defense material there are also sanctions already in place because on some chinese officials because of what's going on in hong kong this these sanctions will be against banks who do business with officials who are deemed to be responsible for any crackdown on protesters in in hong kong and then already we had also other citations which are being worked on right now against china because of allegations of human rights abuses against the readers in shouldn't john and that example is quite notable because that's when we sort of trump donald trump israel politic he's been quite open he said he delayed those sanctions he delayed signing those sanctions after enormous support in congress for them because the trade deal was still being negotiated the phase one trade deal that trade deal has been signed up but we also know that the chinese wall and might compare the
8:26 pm
secretary of state to a week ago but there are red lines that they have that america shouldn't cross and if china was to withdraw from that trade deal for example it would be disastrous for donald trump's electoral platform because especially to agricultural communities in the u.s. so these are considerations that we have to take him to take into account having said that there might compare state mike pence the vice president very outspoken against china in the last few days about what's going on and these sanctions do seem relatively mild but as always we don't know where the president will sign whether he'll delay or have any ill will do anything else signing statements until he actually until he actually does it with these sanctions would you think that the effects are. then will ultimately trickle down and work against the people of hong kong themselves. and that means i think what we're looking at here is is against banks who do business with party officials to be part of the crackdown so i
8:27 pm
mean it's clear i think. something was up if for example the u.s. suddenly said all right we're going to crack down on capital inflows into hong kong or its trading position generally or capital inflows to china because all of these do have a ramifications for the u.s. as well economically and that's not what we're seeing at the moment it does seem does seem relatively mild but i haven't actually read all the small print i have to admit but this does seem to be only on the outer edge of what the u.s. could be doing right now. you have thanks very much for the chamber times reporting from capitol hill and despite the mountain international pressure china is refusing to back down let's hear now from devika poland reporting from hong kong. then uli enacted national security law has already been used against some of the thousands of protesters who defied warnings and took to the streets on july the 1st the 23rd anniversary of the handover from british colonial rule many are questioning the

8:29 pm
national security law to suppress those troublemakers those traitors i believe we need the national security law to stay prosperous hong kong and the chinese government say the law is necessary to restore order in the special administrative region where anti-government street protests made the headlines worldwide the government and parts of the business sector have been trying to rally support for the new law saying it will bring stability to the city in fact the floating banner behind me celebrates the enactment of the law but there are concerns that it could put the city status as an international financial center at risk at least $27.00 countries have echoed concerns that hong kong's freedoms and rule of law are at risk britain's prime minister says. the legislation is a serious breach of the 1997 handover agreement which guaranteed freedom and autonomy for 50 years and china's warning of consequences if the british government changes overseas passport rules to offer a path to citizenship for nearly half of hong kong's population. we reiterate that
