HONG KONG — Hong Kong police and protesters faced off Monday as authorities began trying to clear the streets of a few hundred who remained near the city government headquarters after massive demonstrations that stretched deep into the night before.

The police asked for cooperation in clearing the road. Protesters, many in masks and other gear to guard against possible use of tear gas, responded with chants, some kneeling in front of the officers. The move came after activists rejected an apology from the city’s top leader for her handling of legislation that has stoked fears of expanding control from Beijing in this former British colony.

Hundreds of protesters sat on and along a main road through downtown, but they were scattered over a relatively wide area.

Activists called on Hong Kong residents to boycott classes and work, though it was unclear how many might heed that call.

The Trump campaign is cutting ties with three pollsters after damaging internal polling results were leaked to the media, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The leak, which showed that Trump trailed Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential contest in several states, prompted a swell of negative headlines, causing a headache for Trump’s advisers and annoying the president himself. It comes as Trump is preparing to announce his re-election bid during a rally in Orlando, Fla., on Tuesday.

As a result of the leak, the Trump campaign is ending its relationship with Brett Lloyd, Mike Baselice and Adam Geller, according to the person. It will continue working with its other pollsters, Tony Fabrizio and John McLaughlin.

Lloyd is the head of the Polling Company, a firm started by Kellyanne Conway in 1995. Conway is now a senior White House adviser to Trump and is no Continue reading “Trump campaign parts ways with pollsters after leak”
