American flags and pictures of President Trump were waved on Thanksgiving night in Hong Kong as thousands gathered at a rally in appreciation of the U.S. passing bills supporting human rights in Hong Kong that were signed into law by President Trump.

According to CNBC:

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed into law congressional legislation which supported the protesters, despite angry objections from Beijing, with which he is seeking a deal to end a damaging trade war.

Protesters in Hong Kong responded by staging a 'Thanksgiving' rally, with thousands, some draped in U.S. flags, gathering in the heart of the city.

'The rationale for us having this rally is to show our gratitude and thank the U.S Congress and also President Trump for passing the bill,' said 23-year-old Sunny Cheung, a member of the student group that lobbied for the legislation.

 

President Trump released a statement on the bills late Wednesday, "I signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong," Trump said.

"They are being enacted in the hope that Leaders and Representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences leading to long term peace and prosperity for all."
