Trump calls Jimmy Lai a “brave man”

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, on Wednesday called Hong Kong media mogul Jimmy Lai, detained last week for a few hours, as a “brave man”.

Cited by France-Presse (AFP), Donald Trump said Lai “is certainly a brave man”.

Jimmy Lai, 72, is the owner of two pro-democracy publications often critical of Beijing, the Apple Daily and Next Magazine.
