And, when you didn’t think Trump could do anything more insane … he spoke with Taiwan’s President.
The U.S. does not recognize Taiwanese independence officially and actually calls the government “in” Taiwan, not “of” Taiwan. Notice the wording. The U.S. has always had a One China policy (be it, right or wrong) for specific reasons — most importantly preventing WAR.
Before he has even been inaugurated, the United States national security, and with it, the security of the entire world, has been put in jeopardy by Trump and only Trump — no consultation with the still sitting American government, meaning the State Department or President Obama.
Trump’s ignorance is incomprehensible — if this were not happening, it would more accurately be described as farce. It is sadly the opposite of humorous — sobering reality.
