(NewsReady.com) – When President Donald Trump took office nearly four years ago, China was taking advantage of the US on almost every level. He vowed that would not allow that to continue and then spent his tenure in office being incredibly tough on the Communist country. Joe Biden is now facing pressure to continue Trump’s work if he takes over in January.
According to a November 24 report by the New York Times, there’s an expectation Biden will continue trying to limit China’s growing influence. One of the most pressing issues is the US relationship with Taiwan. President Trump recognized the island as independent from the Communist country and started creating a relationship with the island nation. It was a historic move.
Biden claims he has reached out to Taiwan officials to continue Trump’s work, but the people aren’t convinced he will be up for the job.
In Taiwan, President-elect Biden’s ascent has been greeted with anxiety in some corners. President Trump, by contrast, has a loyal following because of his criticism of Beijing. "Trump’s actions have been very solid," said one lawmaker. https://t.co/2fpFtSg2HL

The concern of the Taiwanese people may be for nothing. The election is not official in the US and there’s still a chance President Donald Trump may serve a second term beginning in 2021. If so, he will likely continue working with Taiwan and putting China in its place.
