A commentator urged Taiwanese to understand the basic philosophy of US president-elect Donald
Trump, saying billionaire real-estate mogul benefited from then-US president Ronald Reagan’s economic policy in the 1980s and became a believer in “Reaganomics.”
Investment Media and Wealth Magazine chairman Hsieh Chin-ho (謝金河) spoke about his view on why Trump took a telephone call from President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on Friday last week and the effects the 10-minute call could have.
China was initially relieved — and even happy — that Trump won the US presidential election, believing he would be “easier to deal with” than former US secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, Hsieh said on Facebook on Sunday.
However, Beijing remains highly uncertain as to what Trump’s policies will be, he said. [FULL STORY]
