China top diplomat says strongly condemns US bill on HK human rights

- Says lodged stern representations with US on HK bill
I think the bright side in all of this is that despite the constant voice of disapproval from China, it isn't deterring both sides from moving towards a "Phase One" trade deal just yet.
Do be reminded that Trump is yet to sign off on the bill and turn it into law but it is merely a formality at this stage. If he just lets it drag on without a veto or signing, it will automatically turn into law anyway on 3 December.
