China again rejects Trump's suggestion to negotiate Taiwan
BEIJING (AP) — China's foreign ministry on Sunday again rejected President-elect Donald Trump's suggestion that he might use American policy on Taiwan as a bargaining chip between the two sides.
Spokesman Lu Kang said Sunday that the "one China" policy is "non-negotiable." Since recognizing Beijing in 1979, Washington has maintained only unofficial ties with Taiwan, the self-governing island that Beijing considers its territory — a status quo that Trump has repeatedly threatened to upend since winning the November election.

Trump should actually study about US policies before just shooting off a Tweet about Taiwan that goes back to Nixon on the one China policy. China buys most of the US debt and Trump better realize he is not just going to BULLY everyone in the world. China is not a country that Trump will just push around. One China is not negotiable. Trump with his tariff threats are already going to be challenged by his own party. Tariffs have never worked only raised prices for products and cost US jobs!!!

I think Donald Trump is a reckless idiot. But I agree with him this time.
Taiwan is our friend. China is not.

The first order of business for Trump as President is to start a war and send our sons and daughters to die for his misguided policies! I am glad that I did not vote for this guy, my conscience is clear!

Based on what the Chi-Coms are doing lately in the S China Sea, I think this is a good strategy. A little taste of their own medicine. They rattle a sabre, We rattle a saber. (note difference in spelling of Sa___ :-)
