Trump Criticized For Talking To Taiwanese President

President-elect Donald Trump is taking heat for talking on the phone to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, who called to congratulate him on winning the presidency. Trump was criticized for taking the call because this could damage relations with China.

Trump defended the call, saying that Ing-wen called him, not the other way around, and pointed out that the United States has relations with Taiwan.
