White House spokeswoman says US president finds it 'hard to see' how Hong Kong can remain a financial hub amid conflict.

US President Donald Trump has indicated that the United States was working on a strong response to China's planned national security legislation for Hong Kong, which would be announced before the end of the week.

China's parliament is expected to approve a proposed security law that would reduce Hong Kong's separate legal status on Thursday, calling into question the special economic status the territory currently enjoys under US law.
