Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen has stated that the United States’ commitment to Taiwan under the Trump administration is “stronger than ever.”
This comes on the heels of Taiwan facing continuous challenges from China, in which China references Taiwan as a breakaway Chinese province and no a separate nation.
The Chinese President has vowed to reunite the island with China by 2030. This is on the reverse end of United States and Chinese relations finally improving after the recently applied tariffs and trade deficits.
In general, the relationship with the United States between these two separate entities is very fragile, but it is referenced as a positive across the board that the United States’ presence is “stronger than ever.” This is a win for America’s southeast Asia presence.
