US not taking China threat seriously enough, expert warns: 'We've been very naïve'
US has not taken Xi Jinping seriously: Mark Clifford
Committee for Freedom in Hong Kong President Mark Clifford discusses the conviction of pro-democracy activist Jimmy Lai for fraud by a Hong Kong court and Xi Jinping’s grasp on the Chinese Communist Party on ‘Mornings with Maria.’
Asia expert Mark Clifford sounded the alarm Wednesday on Chinese leader Xi Jinping's growing aggression and the U.S.'s "dangerous" failure to take the threat more seriously.
Clifford's warning came on the heels of a Hong Kong court convicting pro-democracy activist Jimmy Lai of fraud Tuesday as part of their aggressive crackdown on collusion with foreign forces.
"This conviction is a joke. And it just shows how far Hong Kong's courts have fallen. It used to be a place with rule of law," Clifford, president of the Committee for Freedom in Hong Kong, told "Mornings with Maria." "There's now a 100% conviction rate on political charges. It's just like mainland China."
