Call to Taiwan 

Trump talked with the president of Taiwan, which is a major breach of U.S. policy with respect to China. [More details here]

But lets take a look at the implications as discussed in these tweets.




By the way, no president or president elect has be in contact with a Taiwanese leader since the late 70s! That’s decades of U.S. foreign policy.

[Update]

A series of tweets from Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut. He is a member of the senate foreign relations committee.





Also some more details from the New York Times.



To summarize:

In a single phone call Donald stirred up potential problems with our allies, insulted China, and implicated himself in even more potential conflicts of interest. It’s not even January you guys.
