China denied U.S. aircraft carrier entry to Hong Kong port, according to Pentagon spokesman cnn.it/1roB6wb
For many decades HK has been a port of call for the US Navy, even after the British handed it back to China. I could see how this would be hard for them to swallow. This response was a long time coming.
This is not surprising. China is not friends with the US.
Well, naval port visits usually are a normal gesture of goodwill between nations. Chinese naval ships often visit American ports. Back in Nov 2015, some Chinese naval ships had a goodwill port visit in Florida.
