The personal feud between Chiang Kai-shek and President Harry Truman is one reason that led to the communist taking over China.
In 1948, Chiang openly supported Thomas Dewey, the challenger to Truman, who was then-incumbent President.
After the upset victory, Truman turned a blind eye to China and, in some aspects, handed over China to the communists, leaving Chiang and the Nationalists to their own devices.
Chiang’s failed political gamble brought hell to the Chinese people, and he had to retreat to Taiwan and never returned.
Luckily, with the help and protection of the United States, Taiwan has become not only a shining example of democracy but the strongest bastion against communist aggression.
However, in a recent turn of events, history seems to be repeating itself.
On Nov 7, when the US presidential election remained undecided, the president of Taiwan, Tsai Ing-wen, tweeted her premature congratulation to Joe Biden on his electoral victory.
This act is not only a backstab to President Trump, who has been strongly supporting Taiwan and taking a tough stance on CCP’s aggression, but a slap in the face to the American people who voted for him.
Such opportunism and naivety put Taiwan in a vulnerable position.
In Emperor Xi’s mind, invading Taiwan is his lifelong dream and would solve all his ruling problems.
The only thing holding him back is the might of the U.S. military.
Biden’s collusion with the CCP is an open secret.
According to Miles Guo’s recent broadcast, Xi Jinping has Joe Biden’s tacit approval to attack Taiwan.
As much as President Tsai tries to burn the bridges, President Trump will safeguard Taiwan because doing so serves America’s interests.
President Trump knows what America First is truly about.
