U.S. Senate Republican leader threatens 'reexamining' U.S.-China relationship

U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday threatened to reexamine the U.S.-Chinese relationship if Beijing pursues a "further crackdown" on Hong Kong, after China was set to impose new national security legislation on the former British colony.
