Vice-President Pence slams Nike and NBA in China speech

US Vice-President Mike Pence was damning of the relationship that US organisations have with China.

Earlier this month Houston Rockets' manager Daryl Morey tweeted support for pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. As a result Chinese firms suspended sponsorship and telecast deals.

In a speech about China in Washington DC, the Vice-President criticised the response of the NBA and Nike.
