A rally in Taipei tomorrow in support of US President Donald Trump is planned by a coalition of pro-Taiwanese independence groups, who yesterday said that they would urge him to make a visit to Taiwan.

At a media briefing outside the Legislative Yuan in Taipei, members of the groups thanked the Trump administration for its support of Taiwan in the face of Chinese threats, holding placards that read: “We thank President Trump, protect Taiwan’s democracy.”

Preparatory Office of Autonomous Formosa Detached Territory of Japan secretary-general Tseng Ching-yuan (曾勁元) urged people to join the rally.

“Trump is a real friend and a big benefactor of Taiwan,” Tseng said. “So at this critical time, we should have a mass turnout to show our gratitude and give him support — and to safeguard Taiwan at the same time.”    [FULL  STORY]
