A timeline of U.S. interference in Hong Kong affairs
Hong Kong has been gripped by protests and violence since mid-June, and China has repeatedly criticized the United States for meddling in Hong Kong's internal affairs.
The United States has a history of meddling in the affairs of foreign governments, according to William Jones, the Washington bureau chief for Executive Intelligence Review. Last week, U.S. senators approved the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act and the Protect Hong Kong Act. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government strongly condemned the U.S. Congress for passing the Hong Kong-related bills, one day after it slammed the U.S. Senate, saying the bills do not help in quelling the unrest.
