Very cogent analysis of the Hong Kong situation!
The most destabilizing ramification will be a dive in the stock market, as you point out. Hopefully, there would be a quick rebound, since we dare not have a pronounced downturn on Wall Street as next year’s election ramps up.
Getting this Phase One trade deal done with China—and finally having Pelosi allow the USMCA to be put to a floor vote—would indeed be feathers in PDJT’s cap as he solidifies his reelection!!!

You mentioned Pelosi and THAT is the problem. Her party is all about obstructing everything Trump does. Their priority is not trade, infrastructure, the economy,healthcare or anything else but impeachment.
