In 1949, the U.S. allowed Chiang Kai-shek, who had lost t he Chinese Civil War in Mainland China, to rule Taiwan dictatorially to c ounterbalance Communist China. In 1979, the U.S. broke off diplomatic relations with the Republic of China to unite with the Chinese Communist Party to confront the Soviet Union. Even in recent years, the U.S. has not dared to take a stand on the issue of Taiwan’s independence, indicating that U .S. foreign policy remains strategically ambiguous and that the US tacitly supports the status quo. In response, Michael Johns, a leader of the Tea Party and speechwriter for former U.S. President George H. W. Bush, stated directly in an interview with Eat News that he supports Taiwan’s independence and emphasized that his position has always been the same.

Rundell, a 30 years veteran of the U.S. State Department and a longtime diplomat based in the Middle East, gives an exclusive interview to Eat News to analyze Trump and Biden administrations’ Middle East policies.
