  1. US has trade deficit with Taiwan about 14 billions dollars a year, Trump asked Tsai whether Tsai buys chicken feet, Tsai said no, how about stinging soy, Tsai refused finally Tsai agreed to get some defense toys to reduce the deficit. Meanwhile Xi refused to buy soy bean and chicken feet from USA to reduce the deficit .

  2. The United Nations should expel mainland China from its membership and restablish Taiwan's membership!

  3. After Afghanistan Iraq Libya Venezuela! US is bringing democracy to Taiwan

  4. This will give signal to China. Stay away from Taiwan. China is expanding its muscle in Asia, Africa and middle east. It is a right move for America.
    Taiwan was a creation of America. It is a duty to support another democracy country. Naturally America is a capitalist country, America makes money on Smart weapons, Plains, Submarines and other high end capital goods. It is good for American economy. Now America will sell weapons to oil rich countries very soon.

  5. You got to give credit to Trump. America does not want another Superpower (China) to control the world. Also Taiwan is a great friend of USA. USA can used Taiwan's land and Taiwaneese during a major war with China. I am glad America is not following "One China" policy anymore.
    It is also good for Japan, India and other east Asia countries. China is a land hungry country. China is not a friend of any country including Pakistan.

  6. It's not an interference in chinas affairs. It's an assistance to Taiwan which is a sovereign nation. It's the original China.

  7. I just understand that why the Chinese itself trying to build one of the most powerful military on earth but it is a threat to national security when others trying to do the same as what they have been doing.

  8. Taiwan will also need something to counter an EMP device… China's first strike weapon.

  9. India should ally with Taiwan more

  10. Taiwan is the beacon of democracy in asia, everyone ought to help Tawan defence against china commie regime.

  11. America's deception will not understand now, when they are added to different conditions, then understand

  12. Kill each other in the name of land , religion its the only way to stop human population.War will set the earth free from human tyranny

  13. Taiwan is the part of Greater China

  14. USA always trying to make conflicts between two countries , so that they could sell arms, Is is the ideology of so called Democratic USA( ?). In leu of money they always support the KINGS & DICTATORS. 🙈🙈🙈.

  15. Now is the perfect time to arm yourself Taiwan coz the bully communist is so anxious to invade you. All freedom loving nations should rise up against communist tyranny.

  16. Look back at the history of the American governments!!!
    Blood and more blood.

  17. الولايات المتحده الامريكيه
    مجموعات عرقية هاجرت إلى قارة أميركا في بداية القرن الخامس عشر
    أغلبهم مجرمون تم إبعادهم أو نفيهم من أوروبا وبخاصة بريطانيا وايرلندا
    أقاموا مستعمرات بعد أن ابادوا السكان المحليين وقدر عدد ما تم قتلهم وابادتهم ما بين ٢٠-٤٥مليون مواطن محلي.
    هذه هي الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية
    باختصار شديد

  18. Peoples in US should be happy, with this money the goverment can help you with medications, foods, shelters and jobs.

  19. Why doesnt the US sell F35 to Taiwan. Cause Taiwan will leak the technology to China. The US doesnt trust Taiwan.

  20. IM SO GLAD TAIWAN , HONG KONG, EAST TURKESTAN WILL ALL EVENTUALLY BECOME TOTALLY INDEPENDENT COUNTRIES. FREED FROM THE EVIL YELLOW SUBHUMAN GRIP OF CHINA

  21. China an no other country or person should have any right to force their authority over another,
    Those leaders who think they can lord it over others are truly an actually brain dead
    They themselves need to be permanently looking up at the roots of grass. Is there anyone there that would start a go fund me page to pay for those that take out these parasite leaders
    This should be done more often so we can live without threat of any war.

  22. Who ever don't what you to be United with your brother is your biggest enemy

  23. 来吧,只有和美国打一架了

  24. Why can't US sell arms to Taiwan when they can build up an artificial Island in the middle of the Sea that threatens ASEAN. This is total BS from the People's Republic of China.

  25. Ah well !! the most profitable and cheapest way to win an economic quarrel with China……let Chinese kill Chinese (Taiwan Chinese) while selling the US largest export product

  26. Stupid USA what u think they r so many China’s people live in Taiwan and it easy for China to copy the equipment that u send to Taiwan.

  27. scrap metal is very expensive this days

  28. AMERICUNTS ARE DESPERATE FOR A WAR WITH CHINA.. KEEP POKING YOIR FINGER AND THE DRAGON WILL BITE YOUR ARM OFF
