Asked to comment on Saturday’s election, Biden said, “We do not support freedom.” Hours before voting began, Washington warned that it would be unacceptable for “any” country to interfere in the election. Let us tell you that Taiwan is a neighbouring island on which China has been claiming.

Despite lacking formal diplomatic relations, the United States is Taiwan’s most important international supporter and arms supplier. The Biden administration fears the election, change, and new administration will escalate conflict with Beijing. Let us tell you that Biden has worked to smooth relations with China, including agreeing to resolve differences on security matters at the California summit with President Xi Jinping in November.

Two senior government officials said Taiwan’s government expects China to attempt to pressure its incoming president after the vote, including through military manoeuvres near the island. China has never refrained from using force to bring Taiwan under its control. According to the official, the delegation will likely include some former high-ranking US officials.
