Here now is a real issue regarding Trump…China is upset that he spoke directly to the Taiwanese President, according to this Yahoo article.
It is perhaps unprecedented for a U.S. president or president-elect to speak directly with a leader of Taiwan, a self-governing island the U.S. broke diplomatic ties with in 1979. China said it lodged a stern complaint with the U.S. and reiterated its commitment to seeking “reunification” with the self-governed democratic island, which it considers a renegade province.
Eek…Trump’s straight-forward ways is already causing problems. But I am encouraged that the Chinese Foreign Minister sees it differently:
In initial comments apparently meant to downplay the significance of the call, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Saturday that the contact between Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen and Trump was “just a small trick by Taiwan” that he believed would not change U.S. policy toward China, according to Hong Kong’s Phoenix TV.
Hmmm…I’m sure that China has their MSM too. It looks to me like Trump has stepped into a pile of historical shit between the countries. I think he’s saying that he wants to have positive relations with all countries though. And Taiwan tried to explain their position here:
Taiwan’s official Central News Agency said Edwin Feulner, former president of the Heritage Foundation, a Washington-based conservative think-tank , was a “crucial figure” in setting up communication channels between the sides, leading to the call.
I think the real heart of the matter is contained in this paragraph though:
Washington has pursued a so-called “one China” policy since 1979, when it shifted diplomatic recognition of China from the government in Taiwan to the communist government on the mainland. Under that policy, the U.S. recognizes Beijing as representing China but retains unofficial ties with Taiwan.
This sounds to me that the US has been trying to re-integrate Taiwan into China. I think Trump is not going to agree with this philosophy, hopefully on more than his Trump Corporation interest.
The call also has drawn attention to Taiwanese media reports that the Trump Organization is interested in investing in the Taiwanese city of Taoyuan, near Taipei.
The city’s mayor, Cheng Wen-tsan, said in a statement on the city government’s website last month that a representative of the Trump Organization had visited the city and expressed interest in investing in hotels near the airport. The statement said the visit was too brief for both sides to get into details.
The Trump Organization has denied it has any projects planned in Taiwan.
Hmmm…is this false news? It feels like it to me. Why would the MSM want to alienate the Chinese? Ummm…could it be because they are part of the BRICS Alliance???? There is so much more going on here IMO. I’m not sure what the sovereignty of Taiwan is really about, so I’m not going to comment further. But it’s kinda feeling like the MSM is trying to portray China in a bad light:
“It must be pointed out that there is only one China in the world and Taiwan is an inseparable part of Chinese territory,” Geng Shuang, a ministry spokesman, said in a statement. “The government of the People’s Republic of China is the sole legitimate government representing China.”
This makes it sound like China is trying to curtail the freedom of Taiwan, and I don’t believe that China is this dictatorial. I could be wrong, but I do know they are part of the positive Human Alliance. Well…maybe not everyone in their government. Ick. The damn illuminati are everywhere! Yet I am encouraged by this statement, which was meant as a diss but I see as a good thing:
The call is the starkest example yet of how Trump has flouted diplomatic conventions since he won the Nov. 8 election. He has apparently undertaken calls with foreign leaders without guidance customarily lent by the State Department, which oversees U.S. diplomacy.
Good for Trump! Bet the illuminati are fuming! LOL Hence the MSM article. Gotta skew the popular opinion. I’m taking this article with a huge grain of salt!
Still…this is an interesting issue that I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of.
Addendum: Just watched a video by Anonymous where they explain the importance of this whole Taiwan conversation...they claim that it is part of the ploy to get the electorate to view Trump as dangerous because he's willing to start a war with China. See around 5:30 for their very concise analyses on this.
