Donald Trump has again made a bad turn over his Chinese colleague in the margin of the G20 summit in.
the German port city of Hamburg. The American president and his Chinese colleague Xi Jinping had a brief encounter, but from transcriptions of the conversation, which the White House itself brought out, Trump referred to him as being the president of the Republic of China. However, that is the official name of Taiwan, a country that is not recognized by China.
Taiwan has been in its own government since the end of the civil war in 1949, but is considered by Beijingto be a wasteful province, and not an autonomous state. So, who wants to be in good standing with China can also better support the One-Chin policy. Taiwan is therefore referred to as the ‘Republic of China’, while China is called the People’s Republic of China, and for that, they are very sensitive in China.
It is not the first time Trump is introducing his Chinese counterpart to the hair. Thus, shortly after his election victory in November last year, he accepted a congratulatory phone call from Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-wen, although the US officially cut the ties with Taiwan in 1979.
Also, the tensions with North Korea – the United States expect a more powerful attitude from the Chinese – and in the South China Sea, claimed by both China and Japan, that Trump and Xi Jinping are not the best friends at the moment .
On Saturday, two US long-distance bombers flew over the East and South China Sea during a training flight with the South Korean Air Force.
