US Election Special III: Election results update, Chinese & HK voters in NYC & discussion with: Davi


US Election Special III: Election results update, Chinese & HK voters in NYC & discussion with: Davi

Hello, and welcome to The Pulse. Unprecedented, extraordinary, mind-boggling - choose your own adjective for describing the American elections. From the distance of Hong Kong, another adjective might be confusing. Coming to think of it, it’s pretty confusing stateside as well. So, we are going to do our best to shed some light on all of this. We’ll also take a closer look at New York, to find out how Asian-Americans evaluate the past four years of Trump’s presidency, and who they’ve picked to lead the country next.

But one thing and probably one thing only is clear about this election: it marks the largest turnout in US elections since 1900. Aside from that, more or less everything is in dispute as legal action is threatened, allegations of fraud impressively flow out of the White House, and a profound air of uncertainty hovers. To help us make sense of all of this, we have in the studio David Law, Chair in Public Law at the Hong Kong University, and we’re pleased to welcome back Sean Kenji Starrs, Assistant Professor in the Department of Asian and International Studies at Hong Kong’s City University.

The Pulse

RTHK's English-language current affairs programme that takes "The Pulse" of Hong Kong ... and the world around it.

"The Pulse" is presented by locally and internationally known journalist and writer Steve Vines.

Its focus? The latest events and trends that affect Hong Kong - from the corridors of power and business boardrooms, to the streets and dai pai dongs.

"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

If you want to discuss anything you've seen in "The Pulse", or anything in the public eye right now, or just to talk about the show, why not join in the debate on our Facebook page, RTHK's The Pulse. 

Starting 3 April, the programme is aired every Friday on RTHK 31 at 19:30.
