In a new interview, Taiwanese President talks to USA Today about the Trump call.
In an interview with USA Today, Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen said that Donald Trump’s 10-minute phone call “does not mean a policy shift” and was merely a way for Taiwan “to express our respect for the U.S. election.” The key graphs from the interview below:
President-elect Donald Trump’s controversial phone call with Taiwan’s Tsai Ing-wen does not signal a change in China policy and simply reflected “a way for us to express our respect for the U.S. election,” the leader of this East Asian nation said here Tuesday.
“One phone call does not mean a policy shift,” Tsai told USA TODAY. “We all see the value of stability in the region.”
Trump’s 10-minute phone call Friday with Tsai overturned decades of diplomatic protocol. It was the first known contact between a U.S. president or president-elect and a Taiwanese leader since the U.S. ended formal relations with the island in 1979.
