Taipei, May 26 (CNA) An article published Tuesday by a Chinese Communist Party-linked newspaper has sparked outrage over its sexist comments about Taiwan’s new president Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), whom the article suggested was unfit to be president because she was single and childless.

Wang said that because Tsai is single, she thinks less about strategic directions and more about tactical details, and cares more about achieving short-term goals than long-term ones. [FULL STORY]
