What’s really behind the Hong Kong protest where an estimated 2 million people took to the streets on June 16th, almost one third of the HK population? What do the people of Hong Kong actually have to lose?

And how does this unprecedented public outcry relate to the US-China trade war, and what can be considered an existential crisis currently facing Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party?

This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

Today we sit down with Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, who is also author of the book Bully of Asia: Why China's Dream is the New Threat to World Order, and a founding member of the Committee on the Present Danger: China.

We discuss the Hong Kong protest, the US-China trade war, how these relate to the Chinese state forcibly harvesting organs from prisoners of conscience, and how, in dealing with China, the current administration can learn from policies former President Ronald Reagan applied to the Soviet Union.
