Jeff Bezos, appearing in a made for Prime TV video, has joined together with Presidents Trump and Xi to announce that Hong Kong will now be managed by the Seattle mega retail company.

The announcement was made from the decks of the Octopus, the magnificent Megayacht previously owned by dead Paul Allen.  Now purchased by Mr. Bezos, the 350 ft vessel will be homeported in Hong Kong and serve as Mr. Bezos’ home away from home.

Aside from Amazon, the 100 billionaire is also purchasing the Seattle Seahawks, again from the dead Paul Allen.  The Hawks  will now play a third of their games in the new Hai Ying Stadium .. 海鹰体育场.

Mayor Jenny Durkhin of Seattle and the Seattle based construction company, Wright Construction Company , also announced that Seattle and Hong Kong will become sister cities.  Plans include a replica of the Space Needle along the shores of Hong Kong.  This will be constructed by the Wright Company which also owns the current Needle. In return,  China and Seattle will announce a sister relationship between Seattle’s Seattle Asian Art Museum and the Hong Kong Heritage Museum.  Although Mr. Allen is now dead, the trust that lives on as dead Paul Allen is donating his art collection to this unusual transoceanic institution which will also take over management of Seattle’s iconic Museum of Pop Culture. 

President Trump was especially gratified that this new relationship, “based in the shared ideal of capitalism” would bring the discord in Hong Kong to an end. The President announced that his hotel chain will build Trump East .. its first hotel in China.  The hotel will also house the headquarters of Ivanka East to be headed by Ivanka Trump whio will leave the White House to directly manage the new venture.

President Xi Jinping, said he was very pleased  that the three leaders had been able to offer the people of Hong Kong a pathway that preserved the commitment to one country, two systems.  He notes that China’s own commitment to social engineering mirrored the efforts by Amazon to use artificial intelligence to improve the way it serves its customers.

Jack Ma, investor, politician , philanthropist, and founder of China’s Amazon, Alibaba, Group, was also aboard the Octopus .  He expressed his support for the endeavour and  announced plans for Amazon and Alibaba to work on joint projects. These will based in a new headquarters the companies will share in 中環, the central business district of Hong Kong.

Finally, Mr. Bezos and Mr. Ma will be joining the Hong Kong Governing Council. The body, appointed jointly by China’s central government and the elected representatives of Hong Kong, is the prime governing body of the former British colony.  Mr. Bezos plans to also offer Prime membership to all citizens of the former colony.
