The presidential candidate of Taiwan’s ruling Kuomintang, Hung Hsiu-chu, said Tuesday
she has not yet decided whether to visit the United States before January’s election, adding that she will only talk about the issue after September.
Hung made the remarks when asked about an invitation extended by Taiwanese expatriates in the United States for her to attend a campaign rally scheduled for Aug. 29 in San Jose, California.
Whether Hung will visit the United States has drawn media attention as she has previously expressed reluctance to do so, even to the extent of pouring scorn on her opposition Democratic Progressive Party rival Tsai Ing-wen, whose successful US visit in June was dismissed by Hung as being like an unnecessary “job interview” that she herself did not wish to undertake.
Her stance was somewhat moderated after it became clear that the KMT leadership wished her to go to the US. [FULL STORY]
