President Donald Trump is putting the People’s Republic of China in a very difficult position by considering the possibility of asking it for payment on bonds issued to Americans by the Qing Dynasty. Because if the PRC denies that it is the legal successor to the Qing Dynasty, it will have to forfeit its claim to Hong Kong, which was ceded by the Qing Dynasty to the UK in 1841, by way of the Treaty of Nanjing, the original copy of which is still with the Taiwan-based Republic of China, which is the real legal successor to the Qing Dynasty. On the other hand, if the PRC admits or claims that it is the legal successor to the Qing Dynasty, it will have to pay the US a sum of 1 trillion US, equivalent to all the US treasuries being held by the PRC. Either way, the PRC is doomed. Thank you Mr. President.
