I don't know, something feels off to me. I like the idea of Trump reaching out.
But, before Trump was even on the scene, my prediction was China was going to mess around with islands outside what is defined as part of Taiwan in the Taiwan Relations Act. Perhaps the Pratas and Taiping Island, or god forbid Jinmen, the Matsus, the Wuqiu Island.
I was thinking they would push that in a few years yet and then manufacture some reason to be outraged and ramp it up to the max, before doing something. Yet now tensions are being ramped up at least to 7, Plus Tsai Ing Wen's trip to Guatemala is being protested by the Chinese. At least her stop over. On Jan. 11-12. A week before a handover to Trump, who it seems will take a much more aggressive stance to a China government. Tsai out of the country a week before Trump transitions into power with China ramping up it's rhetoric exponentially, i'm not liking this at all.
Or tell me to wear a tin hat.
