So there are no "major domestic problems" in China at the moment ? No allegedly violent protests b ...

They do have the freedom to hold protests in HK under Chinese rule. Not so under the Brits under the sedition law.  Month-long demonstrations would've been met with fast-shooting cops as shown in the riots at Tottenham England a fews back.

4 killed and 2 injured in Orange County stabbing attacks California, americans relive the wild west era. Only difference in that era was, they only used guns.
Human lives mean nothing when the western warmongers see a bigger gain through war

Trump is responible for that; his daily tweeter attacks on Hispanics and immigrants have emboldened  ...

  I know that liberals and his detractors feel up to heaping scorn on Trump, trying to delate him as a crank who takes pride in being part of white privilege- Tony Morrison called it whiteness in an article published by The New Yorker. Yet I'd hazard a view it would not be fair to pin blame on Trump for having stoked such hatred against Hispanics with vitriolic or Pecksniffian attacks, allowing for the fact that such  shameful and horrid acts also gave Oklahoma City the fantods when Bill Clinton was the president. Yes, I'm talking about the Oklahoma City bombing that  killed 168 people  and the perp Timothy James McVeigh, who's white.

  In a sense, one could argue that  such resentments against other races have been fanned by the proliferation of the alt-right movement favored by meme-making, saber-rattling   ultra-conservatives who use 8chan as a platform from which to vilify liberal thinking and give vent to their anger. To make matters worse,  the fact that Fox News' chattering classes and other left-leaning pundits hanker to cheer Trump on on dog-whistle issues, if anything, only reinforces such supremacists' notion that they have a lot of going for them.

  Trump, who happens to be a standard-bearer in the so-called alt-right movement, understands the optics. And it's natural for him to tap into it to purvey his own blinkered views  and win plaudits from his ever-growing conservative base.

  He will be using the same tactic in the next presidential election. Alas, It's doubtful that a glad-handing wet like  Joe  Biden  or the holier-than-thou-sounding  Elizabeth Warren  would have the moxie to take on a  no-holds-barred sod like Trump.  Better yet, Trump simply scores points when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders flay him.

The US changed their national sport from baseball to mass-shootings

In HK, it's mass protests.
