Cavuto to Collins: Will history repeat itself in Hong Kong?


>>Neil: IT WAS TOUCH AND GO IN HONG KONG. THE SECOND DAY OF DISRUPTIONS AT THE AIRPORT, ONE OF THE BUSIEST ON THE PLANET. 174 MILLION PASSENGERS GO THERE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. IT WAS SHUT DOWN AND GOT VIOLENT AND GOT FOLKS WORRIED. HERE WITH US, FROM THE JUDICIALRY COMMITTEE, DOUG COLLINS. GOOD TO HAVE YOU.>>GOOD TO BE WITH YOU.>>Neil: WHAT SHOULD BE THE EXTENT OF OUR REACTION, MESSAGE, WHAT IS UNFOLDING IN HONG KONG?>>I THINK WE ALWAYS SUPPORT FREEDOM. YOU’RE SEEING THAT FOLD OUT ON THE STREETS. YOU’RE SEEING THE AMERICAN FLAG, HEARING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. WE’RE IS SYMBOL OF FREEDOM AND HOPE. IT’S BEING PLAYED OUT FROM PEOPLE THAT ARE FEELING THE OPPRESSION THAT THEY FEEL CREEPING IN ON THEM AND THEY WANT THE FREEDOM THAT THEY’VE HAD IN HONG KONG.>>Neil: SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN ON OUR PART? IF THEY’RE NOT LISTENING TO US? THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN VERY CAUTIOUS, TRYING TO BALANCE THIS, TO DEAL WITH THIS, TO DEAL WITH TRADE. YOU THINK HE SHOULD BE MORE DIRECT? YOU THINK WE SHOULD BE THREATENING? HOW WOULD YOU PLAY IT?>>I’M NOT SURE THREATENING IS THE RIGHT ANSWER. CONTINUING OUR SUPPORT AS WE ALWAYS HAVE ACROSS THE WORLD. WE SHOULD BE THE COUNTRY THAT IS SUPPORTING FREEDOM AND SUPPORTING THOSE THAT ARE CLAMORING TO BE FREE. HE’S ALSO THE — THE PRESIDENT IS PLAYING THIS IN A WAY HE HAS TO. WE’RE DEALING WITH TRADE ISSUES AS WELL. PUTTING THE TWO TOGETHER IN A SITUATION THAT WE KNEW WAS HEADED TOWARDS THE RECOMBINATION OF HONG KONG AND MAINLAND CHINA IS JUST GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER. WE’LL SEE MORE OF THIS AS IT GETS CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THAT DATE.>>Neil: IF IT GETS VIOLENT, SIR, IF THEY CRACK DOWN LIKE THEY DID IN TIANANMEN SQUARE 30 YEARS AGO, WHAT WOULD YOU THINK?>>I HOPE THEY DON’T DO THAT. THAT WOULD GET A REACTION FROM THE WORLD. THE WORLD WOULD REACT. THERE WOULD BE A VALID REACTION FROM THE UNITED STATES. IF YOU SEE AN OPPRESSION LIKE WE SAW IN TIANANMEN SQUARE AND ESPECIALLY HONG KONG, WHICH IS A BRIGHT SPOT FOR THE ECONOMY AND SOUTHEAST ASIA. WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT IS OPEN. THAT WOULD ELICIT A VIOLENT RESPONSE FROM THE WORLD IF THAT WERE TO HAPPEN.>>Neil: THAT WAS THE HOPE AFTER TIANANMEN SQUARE. THE CHINESE CRACKED DOWN AND FIGURED THE WORLD WOULD GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON AND THEY DID. YOU WORRY ABOUT HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF?>>A LITTLE BIT. THIS IS DIFFERENT. IN CHINA, THEY CAN SWALLOW UP THE TIANANMEN SQUARE INCIDENT AND GO BACK INTO THEIR — AGAIN, THERE’S A DIFFERENCE TIME HERE. YOU’RE DEALING IN A MUCH DIFFERENT CHINA THAN WE DEALT WITH BACK THEN. THIS IS SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND. THEY’RE ALSO HAVING TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THEIR POSITION ON THE WORLD STAGE, THEIR ECONOMIC POSITION AND HONG KONG IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN SOMETHING HAPPENING INTERNALLY THERE IN BEIJING. IT’S DIFFERENT IN THAT RECORD. IT WILL BE HARD TO COVER THIS UP.>>Neil: THE MARKETS STORMED BACK ON THE NOTION THAT MAYBE THE PRESIDENT WAS DANGLING A CARROT TO THE CHINESE TO DELAY SOME TARIFFS AND THAT HOPES ARE BUILDING THAT THERE CAN BE A DEAL. DO YOU THINK WE’RE CLOSE TO A DEAL? DO YOU FEAR THAT OUR HOPES JUST GOT UP OR WHAT?>>NO, I THINK IT’S SOMETHING — THIS UNDERESTIMATED HERE. EVERYBODY IS SORT OF LOOKED AT THE CHINA AMERICAN NEGOTIATIONS THROUGH THE LENS OF THE OLD WAY THAT WE GO BACK AND FORTH. ONE WOULD GIVE, ONE WOULD NOT. PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DONE A FANTASTIC JOB OF KEEPING THE CHINESE OFF BALANCE. THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. THAT’S NOT A BAD THING WHERE THEY’VE HAD THE UPPER HAND FOR SO LONG. I THINK THE PRESIDENT IS COMING BACK AND SAYING, YOU DID THIS, NOW LET ME GO BACK AND CHANGE, THIS I’LL HOLD OFF. HELP OUR CONSUMERS. THE SAME TIME, IT MAKES CHINA SAY WE’RE IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO CAVE IN.>>Neil: YOU THINK ANY OF THIS IMPEACHMENT TALK GOES FURTHER AND FURTHER BACK AND THAT THOSE IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAT WERE ENTERTAINING THAT HAVE TO LOOK AROUND AROUND SAY, ALL RIGHT, IT’S NOT GOING IN I WHERE?>>THEY WOULD RATHER TALK ABOUT ANYTHING THAN THE ECONOMY, ANYTHING THAN THE JOBS MARKET OR ANYTHING WITH THE CONSUMER CONFIDENCE RISING. THEY WOULD RATHER TALK ABOUT A PRESIDENT THAT THEY HAVE HATED SINCE 2016 WHEN HE WAS ELECTED. THEY WANT TO DISTRACT. MY CHAIRMAN HAS BEEN GOING AROUND, MEDIA ALL OVER SAYING THEY’RE IN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. HE KNOWS THAT’S NOT TRUE.>>Neil: I WANTED TO ASK YOU ABOUT THAT HE SAID IT’S AN IMPEACHMENT — TECHNICALLY IT’S NOT. BUT HE SAID THAT. WHAT DID YOU MAKE OF THAT?>>WELL, HE WANTS TO HAVE IT BOTH WAYS. THIS IS WHAT I’VE SEEN. WE’RE A COMMITTEE OF PRESS RELEASE. WE WANT TO HAVE A TWITTER MOMENT THAT WE DO NOTHING. WHAT HE’S SAYING HERE, HE WANTS HIS BASE, HIS HARDCORE BASE — HE HAS A PRIMARY AFFECTING HIM HERE. HE WANTS TO SAY LOOK, I’M BEING TOUGH ON THE PRESIDENT. IN REALITY, IT’S ALSO SPEAKER PELOSI WHERE THEY’RE PROTECTING MEMBERS LIKE HERE IN GEORGIA. OTHERS ON THE COMMITTEE AND OTHERS IN THEIR MAJORITY THEY DON’T WANT TO VOTE ON A FORMAL INQUIRY. THERE’S ALWAYS POLITICS HERE. THEY DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE GOOD IS PRESIDENT IS DOING, THEY DON’T WANT TO HELP HIM BUT THEY WANT TO MAKE THEIR BASE APPEAR THEY’RE ATTACKING HIM, WHICH IS FALSE. THEY’RE TRYING TO PROTECT THEIR MEMBERS AT THE SAME TIME.>>Neil: YOU’VE BEEN HERING THIS ANTHONY SCARAMUCI BACK AND FORTH. YOU CAN SAY ONE THING ABOUT THE PRESIDENT AND HE BURIES YOU. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS BACK AND FORTH?>>SOME PEOPLE HAVE HAD TOO MUCH TV TIME AND SCARAMUCI IS ONE OF THEM. LET’S CONTINUE THIS PROCESS OF STATE YOUR POSITIONS AND MOVE ON. THE PRESIDENT IS WELL-KNOWN THAT HE MAKES HIS DISPLEASURE FELT. HE WILL TELL YOU IF HE FEELS LIKE HIS BEING MISPORTRAYED. LOOK, PEOPLE GOING ON TV AND SAYING THEIR POSITION, IT HELPS THEM TO GET MORE AIR TIME AS WELL. WHAT WE NEED TO FOCUS ON IS WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO FOCUS ON. LET’S FIX THE ECONOMY. LET’S GET A TRADE AGREEMENT WITH CANADA AND MEXICO, WHICH SPEAKER PELOSI IS HOLDING UP. SHE’S HOLDING UP THE TRADE AGREEMENT GOOD FOR MEXICO, THE U.S. AND CANADA. WE NEED THAT DONE. AND THEN LET’S GET ON — LET’S DO WHAT WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING AND HAVE BIPARTISAN WORK ON IMMIGRATION AND THINGS THAT MATTER TO EVERYDAY AMERICANS. SCHOOL STARTS BACK. PEOPLE WANT TO MAKE SURE THE ECONOMY IS GOOD, KIDS IN SCHOOL, EDUCATION. THOSE ARE THE MEAT AND POTATOES THAT AMERICANS CARE ABOUT. WATER NOT DOING IT RIGHT NOW.>>Neil: THE JEFFREY EPSTEIN SUICIDE IS RAISING EYEBROWS. IT’S SORT OF NURSING A LOT OF THE BIG CONSPIRACY THEORIES. YOU FIND IT SUSPICIOUS THE WAY HE DIED?>>VERY MUCH SO. I DON’T THINK ANYBODY WOULD NOT. HERE’S A VERY HIGH PROFILE PRISONER, BEEN ON SUICIDE WATCH. WHY WAS HIS CELL MADE NOT IN THERE. WHY WERE THEY UNDERSTAFF? THAT’S WHY WE’VE ASKED THIS QUESTION OF THE BUREAU OF PRISONS. WE WANT TO KNOW WHY THIS HAPPENED. YOU’VE HIT SOMETHING THAT IS VERY TRUE.

  1. 🇨🇳 Chinese citizens: "Give us Bibles and guns! 💪We want the American formula of freedom!" LOL 😆
    God bless America! 🇺🇸 🙏

  2. I knew Hong Kong was a poison pill to China in time if China did not adopt The Hong Kong ways that made it the world leader in trade deals

  3. Why not help out let them all become American's then send all the Democrats and liberals out !😂😂😂
    Send Omar there also !

  4. When government and power fear Free Speech, we fear a lack of Freedom… even in America, it could get like this if Democrats take back control – we need to be vigilant for 2020 and thankful that we still have a chance to retain our Free Speech & Freedom, but we know it is now just a matter of time, even her in the United States. And, while we can, we should ALWAYS be Advocating for Free Speech regardless of how offensive it may be; it is our Right, and we should never have to fear of Losing it while Defending it – this goes for All of our Foreign Patriots and Supporters of Freedom and Free Speech; in the UK, Europe, and in China and Hong Kong, we're with you all – Let Freedom Reign.

  5. I was watching
    the news on this today and I saw where the police that had been imported from
    China and the people of Hong Kong were fighting the people were kind of getting
    the upper hand! Then one of the Chinese Mainland police (Army in police uniforms)
    pulled out a gun and the people backed up. I think this is why they like gun
    control then the government is the only ones with guns.

  6. The fight for freedom is violent and bloody and these people have no guns to make their stand. This is why the Putrid Left wants our guns so they can beat us into submission. They are afraid of the American Citizens and that is how it should be. The government should be very afraid of betraying us.

  7. by the attention level of west media to Hong Kong and not to France you can judge the US involvement. Btw the proud US gun owner never shot a bullet during Occupy wall street, cops beat the crap out of you proud gun owner from US. Any of you would be shot on sight your law is a parody nothing more against civilians this is most you can do. shoot poor civilians

  8. That is exactly were the liberals like aoc, pelosi, schummer, sanders, harris, warren. etc. Should move to Honk Kong! That looks more like the home they yearn to have.

  9. China needs to stop bullying HK citizens… stop buying made in China … communist dictators..

    I agree with Hong Kong citizens who said they need second amendment..

  10. We need to help these people some how: trade is not as important as freedom. We will figure something out…. help these people, now. Greater Sanctions!!!!

  11. This is a Chinese charm offensive to convince the world how peaceful and caring they really are. Soon Taiwan will be voting to return to the loving arms of the Chinese mainland.

  12. They gave up their guns.That means that they might demonstrate but in the end they will act as their communist government wants them to,or they will be executed.

  13. If the people of Hong Kong are looking to the American government for help they are mistaken. Trump is moving America towards a more Autocratic Form of Government and shares China’s Autocratic views on dissent.

  14. Communist party opened fire to us students 30 years ago in tian an men square. And the evil government will do it again.

  15. China is kind of like that 30 year old kid that was financed through college by mom & dad for those 30 years and the funds that supported that easy living are being cut off. Kicking & screaming the kid wants to move in but mom & dad says no!!!

  16. HK is suffering the same syndrome that US is with antifa. They're claiming they're "peaceful protests" yet they're antagonizing police, attacking them and being an angry mob. Look at the news of them beating people up simply for being a Chinese citizen.

  17. A comparison between the British, Democratic and liberal view of Hong Kong vs. the Socialist Totalitarian rule of the Chinese – the subjugation of Free Speech. … meanwhile in the US we have all these people feeling "hard done by" and crying "Hate Speech" – "Triggering" MORE GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE … oh its all too much – the Left doesn't see it's own failures and consequences of it's (currently) soft totalitarianism.

  18. China has been very efficient in capturing and retaining disobedience characters throughout the decades! Many of them just disappear! This will continue to be their tactic! They will observe to pick them out, capture them and poof, they will disappear!

  19. Many people here missed the point – there is no tyranny, hk is part of China and it will be 100% China by 2047, 50 years after the takeover. They can keep fighting for independence but it will not happen. Young and dumb and easy to get manipulated.

  20. China is oppressing the citizens of Hong Kong. Kidnapping dissidents and stripping away universal suffrage. China was better when they were poor.

  21. Hello N.E.D ?,… Hello…hello operation Mockingbird.
    your tactic only useless with an idiot and barbarian countries.
    Fake news shoud not use Anons world !.

  22. Why is fox blocking comments about Epstein videos. They don't want to people to hear really conspiracy theories. That's what the left is about. Come on fox.

  23. The parallel of Hong Kong and China to the US and GB circa 1775: Believe me, dear Sir: there is not in the British empire a man who more cordially loves a union with Great Britain than I do. But, by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliament propose; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of America.

    — Thomas Jefferson, November 29, 1775

  24. Yet the West still takes advantage of cheap labor, China should have never got Hong Kong back. A complete idiot could see this coming.

  25. No deal! Find a better trade partner. Boycot chinese products. Push them out of other countries(Africa, South America,etc.) with US foreign policy and create an asian NATO. Bleed them economically. Enough is enough!

  26. ONCE again people turn to the US. Just remember that this mess was created by Great Briton when there returned to China.

  27. It's amusing to read all the comments under different videos by different news providers. We are all half-blinded in the sense that almost no media would present all facts and truth to us…

  28. If the protesters hate the government so much, why not just go n move out to anywhere they like??? If they choose to stay, better respect and follow the local laws, respect Millions of other innocent hard working Hong Kong people.

  29. Hong Kong has always been a Chinese city, for THOUSANDS of years, even while under British 100-year leasing agreement.

  30. Maybe History wouldn't have to repeat itself if there were a different man in Beijing. However, with His Imperial Majesty World Emperor Winnie the Pooh, I see no other outcome. For this guy, it would be just the first bloodbath in a long series of bloodbaths he is contemplating.

    China has changed since 1989? He is changing it back, very successfully.

    Back then at least Deng Xiaoping was reluctant to do it. This one will do it with gusto.

  31. It's the fault of the Brits. They should have never given Honk Kong back to China. That was like putting a domesticated animal in a cage with wild animals.

  32. Hong Kong was LEASED by Britain and the lease expired in 1999. Can I claim to own a home I leased after the lease runs out ?
    Honk Kong IS and always has been China's !!!! Stop lying !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. Hong Kong is not America. Hong Kong is under Chinese rule. Actually life in Hong Kong was very good until they started the protest

  34. Yeah this isn't the local concrete workers on strike this is the whole f**** place welcome to the suck b**** I know, right?

  35. Frances Yip's amended song: Kowloon, Kowloon China, Kowloon China – that's not a place for you.

    The people of HK have had enough of China central govt tyranny. China, stop oppressing the people of HK. Power to the people. HK forever!
