US Presidential Election in 2020 - what does it mean for Taiwan?

First off, I want to underline that we don’t need any forumosans to tell us what they really think about Trump, or Biden. We already have lots of threads full of these views.

Instead this thread is to make space for a narrower discussion, specific to Taiwan and its relations with the US going forward after the next Presidential Election.

I want to begin by posting a couple of recently published pieces by the awesome William Stanton, whose column in the Taiwan News is among the best content out there in the mainstream media:



A follow-up: Ian Bremmer (an interesting guy to listen to on a variety of issues) takes his “red pen” approach to a recent op-ed that claims Biden, not Trump, would be better for Taiwan’s continuing independence.
