The call, first reported by the Financial Times, is the first time a US president has directly spoken with Taiwan's leadership in more than 30 years. The White House was not made aware of the call until after it occurred, according to The New York Times.
The US suspended formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan in 1979 after establishing a One China position — which states that "there is but one China and Taiwan is part of China" — in an effort to establish diplomatic channels with Beijing.
CNN is so full of it. Why does the US routinely send aircraft carriers to protect Taiwan if Taiwan is part of China? 1979? RONALD REAGAN agreed to this cra*?
How is it "breaching protocol" for the President-elect to speak to anyone at all and accept congratulations on winning the election?
Richard Bush, the former managing director of the American Institute in Taiwan, which is the official channel of US interests on the island, said the call is a significant development. But he said it isn't "technically" a breach of the unofficial status of Washington-Taipei relations because Trump isn't yet in the White House.
So the DupliCity establishment is so dhimmified that even though it ****IS NOT*** any "breach of protocol", they are terrified to displease Chairman Wu-Hu.
Here is a boughtNpaid4 Democrat Chinese lobbyist:
Chris Murphy, a Connecticut Chinese-owned Democrat who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations committee, publicly blasted Trump for the move in a series of tweets. While it will soon be Trump's right to shift policy, alliances and strategy, Murphy said "what has happened in the last 48 hours is not a shift. These are major pivots in foreign policy w/out any plan. That's how wars start."
He added that "if they aren't pivots - just radical temporary deviations - allies will walk if they have no clue what we stand for. Just as bad."
"And if they aren't pivots," Murphy continued, "just radical temporary deviations - allies will walk if they have no clue what we stand for. Just as bad."
What exactly does the United States stand for? Kissing Red Chinese behinds and stabbing America's friends in the back?
Let me add my congratulations from The Yaks of Mongolia to President-elect-despite-recount-attempts Trump. Seems like the US is getting a President for the first time since 1979, who is willing to to the Red Chinese?
