A day after President Trump signed the Hong Kong Autonomy Act enabling sanctions on those that threaten the autonomy of Hong Kong (and the companies that do business with it) and the U.K. worked to ban Huawei 5G infrastructure, this episode of The Breakdown looks at the key fault lines and issues that have put that relationship in a dangerous, downward spiral:

- Trade war tensions
- The Hong Kong Security Law
- Huawei 5G and critical digital infrastructure
- India border skirmish
- South China Sea Military Exercises
- The politics of labeling this a “new cold war”
