China to reduce tourism to punish the independence President of Taiwan, Tsai ing-Wen, who did not approve of the principle of one China. China has cut all official contacts with Taiwan in June. For his part, the President of Cai is on a political tightrope: trying to keep their biggest trading relationships. "I don't know why we should be bound by the policy of "one China," trump said on Fox News in December of last year. Now trump continues to twist the knife. He told the Wall Street Journal on Friday, "everything is under negotiation, including the policy of "one China.""
