Recording: President Trump’s Taiwan Policy
What will President Donald Trump’s policy toward Taiwan be? What should it be? On February 15, Washington D.C.’s only think tank devoted to research about Taiwan hosted a conversation about the future direction of Taiwan policy under the Trump administration, including its promises and possible pitfalls. Our panel featured experts with experience in government, diplomacy, and policymaking, as well as seasoned observers of the US-Taiwan relationship, in order to tackle pressing questions about this critical relationship and its future under President Donald Trump. The panel opened with remarks by former Director of the American Institute in Taiwan, Ambassador Stephen M. Young, and included discussion with GTI Senior Fellow David An; the well-known author and East Asia expert Gordon Chang; and Center for the National Interest’s Director of Defense Studies and Executive Editor Harry Kazianis.
