Last week, the current Vice President of Taiwan, Lai Ching-te, was elected as the country’s new leader – shaking up the political world. The election of Ching-te, a member of the Democratic Progressive Party, has led to further aggression from China, and America continues to watch carefully as the Biden Administration remains supportive of Taiwan, despite not supporting the country’s independence.
Bret is joined by Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) and Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) to discuss how those in the Senate are working across the aisle to ensure Beijing’s attempts to undermine Taiwan’s democracy will not be successful. They also analyze how the U.S. would defend Taiwan if China were to attack and why they’re confident bipartisan legislation will be passed regarding this issue, despite division in Washington.
