A Taiwanese analyst has slammed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s pick for national security adviser Jake Sullivan, saying that Sullivan previously appeared to support an idea that the United States should abandon its military support for Taiwan in exchange for the Chinese regime writing off $1 trillion in U.S. debt it holds.

While Biden is described by most media outlets as President-elect, The Epoch Times will not declare a winner of the election until all results are certified and any legal challenges are resolved.

Biden recently chose Sullivan, a former senior official at Hilary Clinton’s state department, to be White House national security advisor should Biden take office.

A Taiwanese economist Wu Chia-lung voiced concern for the pick, pointing to his stance on Taiwan as revealed by a 2011 email he sent to then-Secretary of State Clinton, published by Wikileaks in 2016. Sullivan was the department’s director of policy planning at the time.
