China Calls Trump a ‘Bully’ for Supporting Xi Jinping in Hong Kong

China’s state-controlled Global Times on Friday lashed out at U.S. President Donald Trump, accusing him of feigning support for Chinese President Xi Jinping in a ruse to squeeze trade concessions out of China. The Communist paper interpreted Trump’s good wishes as a “bullying” tactic and a tacit admission the U.S. is manipulating the Hong Kong protests to further its own ends.
