Friday/ lessons in foreign policy

So .. President-elect Donald Trump is not the only politician tweeting (yes, he is still tweeting).   I hope he and his staff read Senator Chris Murphy’s tweets (member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee).  Better yet, get briefed by the Foreign Relations Committee regarding the significance if his acceptance of a phone call from Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-Wen.

The Wikipedia entry regarding Taiwan-United States relations has already been updated: On December 2 2016, U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump accepted a congratulatory call from Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-Wen in a phone call, which was the first time since 1979 that an American President or President-Elect has publicly spoken to a leader of Taiwan. PRC Foreign Minister Wang Yi soon made a statement saying that China opposes any move to separate the country, without explicitly mentioning the phone call between Tsai and Trump.
