  1. *Trump, the trouble maker keeps on raising tension with everyone, as if we don’t have enough to deal with this year – – or maybe he is just diverting attention from the Trump Disaster in the US!*

  2. Wuhan faces extreme flooding. It is divine punishment from God. We must not support this false restrictions.

  3. Anybody wanna guess if the US actually asked Hong Kong the most effective way to help? Or is this just more “Ghina” bashing that will have a negative effect for China, the US, and Hong Kong?
