China Warned Trump About Tough Consequences Of Recognizing Taiwan
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 04:56:00 +0300
Since President-Elect Trump won the U.S. presidential election in late 2016, his personality as well as his harsh statements have been criticized in the international geopolitical arena.
In particular, the Chinese government used local mass media to announce their determination to show a tough response to President-Elect Trump’s ambiguous attitude to Taiwan. It’s not a secret that Mr. Trump has seen China as one of the major threats to the USA. This means, that the China-US relations may well get tense in the near future after Mr. Trump moves to the White House in a couple of days.
It seems that Mr. Trump is trying to manipulate China by hinting that he will change his attitude to Taiwan, if his Chinese colleagues change their attitude to the principles of global trade as well as the development of the global reserve currency. It seems that this stand point shown by President-Elect Trump made China angry.
All in all, it should be noted that China warned the USA about the likelihood of a tough response if the USA recognizes Taiwan and doesn’t support the “One China” policy developed by China. China doesn’t have a choice but to want Donald Trump about the consequences. Donald Trump is now busy getting ready for the inauguration, so his response to the warning is unknown at this point.
Experts say that it’s now beneficial for the USA to spoil the relations with China, especially as they were hard to build. The two superpowers are really ambitious, and these are the world’s 2 biggest economies. Anyway, President-Elect Trump promised to focus on domestic problems first, which is why it’s unclear what will come out of his presidency and how it will influence the relations with China. That remains to be seen…

New Secretary of the Treasury Says No to Canceling Sanctions against Russia
Even despite the fact that Donald trump unexpectedly become the 45th President of the United States, and he seems to be more loyal to Russia than any U.S. leader over the last couple of decades, Russia has still been failing to find a common language with the USA.
Donald Trump started his presidency with unpopular decisions. Some of his policies are not welcomed by politicians from both parties, not to mention mass media, secret services and millions of U.S. citizens. Maybe Putin was hoping that Trump would start helping Russia implementing its imperial ambitions despite the public discontent in the USA. But those hopes now seem to be broken. The sanctions will stay effective until Russia gives the Crimea back to Ukraine. That’s the standpoint put forward by Trump’s administration.
The dialog between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump is following an unexpected scenario. It’s unexpected for Moscow. The Kremlin seems to have lost their key “trump” card in the talks with Washington.
According to some military experts, even the most unbiased Russian media ignored a sensational statement published by Reuters.

The agreement was signed in 2010 in Prague and will expire in 2020.

It’s seems like Donald Trump doesn’t mind creating some kind of an alliance with Vladimir Putin. Is so, can he succeed or will he become another U.S. president fooled by Putin. This is the question a number of international experts are trying to answer.
For now, the details of the plan are vague. The current ambiguity existing among the representatives of Trump’s administration hints at this fact. Even when the USA's Permanent Representative to the United Nations demanded for the condemnation of Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, Donald Trump seemed to still have some hope for making friends with Putin. At the same time, he wouldn’t dare say something like ‘the USA is as blood-thirsty as Russia’.

Putin's Chances to Improve Relations with Trump Are Close to Zero, Experts Say
