Donald Trump was elected U.S. President partly because he’s a political outsider.
His stump pledge to shake up the American political machine and “drain the swamp” struck a chord with disillusioned voters. Foreign relations, however, are squelchy for a reason.
Twice in the last week, Trump has had phone conversations that have prompted consternation with nuclear powers.
First reported by Taiwanese media, the conversation between Trump and Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen was later confirmed by the President-elect in a tweet. “The President of Taiwan CALLED ME today to wish me congratulations on winning the Presidency. Thank you!”
How stupid can our politicians get? Seriously, they think they are totally untouchable. They screw our country over time-and-time-again only to walk away with fat wallets and a smile on their faces…NOT ANYMORE WITH DONALD TRUMP AROUND!
I’m sure by this point you have heard that Donald Trump accepted a congratulatory phone call from the President of Taiwan, the first time they have spoken to a US president since Jimmy Carter declared them part of China.
Of course, the establishment elite got very pissy about this since they get all their lobbying paychecks from China
. They immediately went after Trump claiming he was ruining our relationship with China with his call. That’s when Trump shut them down with THIS epic Tweet:
Interesting how the U.S. sells Taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment but I should not accept a congratulatory call.

Beijing’s immediate response was brief and muted. “China firmly opposes any official interaction or military contact between [the] U.S. and Taiwan,” said China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement reported by Chinese state media. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Saturday that the call was “just a small trick by Taiwan,” according to Hong Kong’s Phoenix TV.
That is a harsh dose of reality for America right there. We have been loading the Taiwanese up with weapons for decades while pretending we hate them. At least Trump has the honesty to admit it and is willing to open the door to all comers.
Hell, I never saw Obama willing to admit to us selling weapons to people we supposedly “oppose” even when he was caught red-handed tons of times. (Saudi Arabia, Mexican Cartels, Turkey, Yemen)
The funniest part is that the Liberals of all people are now defending China’s rule over Taiwan just to oppose Trump. What the hell do they even stand for?
This is called leverage folks. We needed leverage to negotiate with China and now Donald Trump has given it to us. Thank God that someone in the White House is gonna actually be smart for once.
I’m proud of Trump and all of America should be too. If you are proud, show him by sharing this out with the message THANK YOU DONALD TRUMP!!
