The mainstream media has started fear-mongering once again. Now, it’s a drummed up hysteria that China will retaliate on the US because Trump answered a phone call from Taiwan’s leader.
President-Elect Donald Trump can’t even answer a congratulatory phone call without being attacked by the media.
Keep an eye out for the fear-mongering lingo in this Financial Times report:
“Donald Trump risks opening up a major diplomatic dispute with China before he has even been inaugurated after speaking on the telephone on Friday with Tsai Ing-wen, the president of Taiwan.
The call is believed to be the first between a US president or president-elect and a leader of Taiwan since diplomatic relations between Washington and the island were cut in 1979.
Although it is not clear if the Trump transition team intended the conversation to signal a broader change in US policy towards Taiwan, the call is likely to infuriate Beijing which regards the island as a renegade province.”
Trump, of course, fired back at hysterical media reporters.
Interesting how the U.S. sells Taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment but I should not accept a congratulatory call.

Here’s a headline from a year ago:
Hoaxing media says Trump isn’t allowed to talk to Taiwan, but Obama can sell them $1.83 billion worth of weapons?https://t.co/Vj7SUXBdeL

The media was silent then.
Now they’re attacking for a phone call with Taiwan.
