US policy since 1979 has respected China's stance on Taiwan, which it sees as a breakaway province.

    But Mr Trump said that without concessions from Beijing on trade and other issues, he did not see why that should continue.

AND IF: your foreign policy is informed primarily from Breitbart et. al.

THEN: Goading China into acting first by recognizing Taiwan isn't a completely crazy move.

See, our problem? Is that the if statements are false.
