Washington, Jan. 20 (CNA) Former Premier Yu Shyi-kun (游錫堃) said Friday that he has asked about the possibility of U.S. President Donald Trump “selling out” Taiwan and got a reassurance from Edwin Feulner, a former president of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Among the many “pointed questions” Yu put to Feulner, he asked whether Trump will “sell out” Taiwan, as some have suggested.

According to Yu, Feulner asked in return how any U.S. president could betray Taiwan when there exists the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA), U.S. legislation governing relations with Taiwan.

Speaking to reporters in Washington, Yu quoted Feulner, an advisor to the Trump transition team, as saying that Taiwan need not worry too much.    [FULL  STORY]
