I am sure as POTUS that Trump will always know the right thing to do. It must be take a heavy toll on all sane men who hold that office. Of course a sociopath like Trump should not have any issues. Of course the news according to Peewit is undisputable Right?
Interesting that during the Bush years everything was okey dokey right? Forget the 4000 American troops dead and trillions lost only to have a failed state and the 1.x trillion in bailouts to the banks and the biggest financial crisis of my lifetime. Grant and Lincoln are to blame for the death of many Southern Americans and freeing the Africans. They should be shot. Oh that's right Lincoln was shot. So let's get a litte more information on this than Peewits opinion.
Donald Trump Talks To Taiwan's Tsai Ing-wen: Will He Cause A Crisis With China?
No one doubted that the world changed a month ago when Donald Trump was elected U.S. president. The result was close, but the American people decisively chose the undiplomatic businessman to lead the U.S. government and “free world.”
Americans are still trying to figure out what kind of president he will be. So are foreign peoples and governments. Although he has acted with some circumspection in his Cabinet choices so far, his phone call to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen suggests either carelessness or recklessness. Neither is a good approach in dealing with an issue of great importance to U.S.-Chinese relations.
Congress passed the Taiwan Relations Act, which institutionalized unofficial relations with Taipei. While the U.S. government formally acknowledges that there is only one China and top U.S. officials avoid contact with Taiwanese leaders, both Taiwan and America maintain unofficial diplomats in the other's capital. It might look like a silly game to outsiders, but such artificial yet important processes are what diplomacy is all about.
President-elect Trump ignored this finely crafted compromise in making his call to Tsai. It was as if British Prime Minister Viscount Palmerston dropped a pleasant note to Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis after the latter’s inauguration. USA President Abraham Lincoln would not have been pleased.
