US revokes Hong Kong's special status on trade
Can't find any articles. Lou Dobbs just said it was breaking news.

WTF???
In his poem Human Pride, Marx admits that his aim is not to improve the world, reform or revolutionize it, but simply to ruin it and enjoy it being ruined:

With disdain I will throw my gauntlet full in the face of the world,
And see the collapse of this pygmy giant whose fall will not stifle my ardor.
Then will I wander godlike and victorious through the ruins of the world
And, giving my words an active force, I will feel equal to the Creator.

Re: US revokes Hong Kong's special status on trade
From last week:

On Friday, President Donald Trump instructed his administration to “revoke Hong Kong’s preferential treatment as a separate customs and travel territory from the rest of China.” The decree came days after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reported that Hong Kong could no longer be said to have “a high degree of autonomy” from Beijing because of the Chinese Communist Party’s move to implement a national security law on Hong Kong.

Hong Kong’s special economic privileges were set out in the U.S.'s Hong Kong Policy Act 1992—a bill designed to ensure the economy of the former British colony continued as normal after its return to Chinese sovereignty in 1997.

This is a stab in the back to HK and any ideas it has about freedom.

Re: US revokes Hong Kong's special status on trade
The World Trade Organization also continues to recognize Hong Kong as a separate entity from mainland China so, although the U.S. is revoking its own recognition of Hong Kong's autonomy, other countries will continue to trade with the city under WTO rules.

Looks like Hong Kong has been compromised and taken over entirely, which would be a reason for this. Keeping Hong Kong's privileges would now benefit China, and allow them to bypass some of the restrictions that are being put in place to punish China.

Re: US revokes Hong Kong's special status on trade
Okay from the US POV, this makes sense:

While it was just a formality at this point, after the US revealed several weeks ago that it would strip Hong Kong of its special trade now that China's is set to impose its new security law as soon as tomorrow, moments ago US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, issued a statement advising China that Hong Kong’s special status is officially revoked.

"With the Chinese Communist Party’s imposition of new security measures on Hong Kong, the risk that sensitive U.S. technology will be diverted to the People’s Liberation Army or Ministry of State Security has increased, all while undermining the territory’s autonomy. Those are risks the U.S. refuses to accept and have resulted in the revocation of Hong Kong’s special status."

Sadly, this is shutting the lid on Hong Kong's aspirations for freedom and autonomy.

Quite the opposite but still spells doom for HK.

Get it through your pea brain that if their special status continues China will get the benefit.

Taiwan has already offered some Hong Kong citizens refugee status.

The west expect them to leave if they want freedom because nobody wants to fight a war over 1 city in the far east.
