Taiwan upset after White House deletes tweet containing its flag

Critics have long asserted that President Joe Biden is beholden to the Chinese communist regime, and his administration did something this week that will only bolster and confirm those suspicions.

A White House-related Twitter account posted and then later deleted an image that included the name and flag of Taiwan, an island off the coast of China that has asserted its sovereign independence but which the communist regime still declares as its own territory, Breitbart reported.

Given the ruling regime’s claim that Taiwan is a rogue breakaway province, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) often reacts with vehement opposition to any sort of imagery or statements from other nations that signal any sort of recognition of the capitalistic and democratic Taiwan’s sovereign independence.

Tweet posted and deleted

The Taiwan-based China Post reported Thursday that the White House COVID-19 Response Team’s Twitter account had posted on Tuesday an image detailing the donation of millions of vaccine doses from the U.S. to a dozen other countries that included the names and flags of those recipient nations, including Taiwan.

Taiwanese leaders, including President Tsai Ing-wen, and opposition party Kuomintang Chairman Johnny Chiang, had heralded on Twitter the subtle recognition inherent in the inclusion of the Taiwan flag, with Tsai thanking the U.S. for its “generosity” with the donations and Chiang noting that a “friend in need is a friend indeed.”

The Chinese government likely complained, though, and the original tweet that included Taiwan and its flag was deleted, undoubtedly in an effort to placate the easily provoked communist regime.

“One-China policy”

Reuters reported that a spokesperson for the White House National Security Council (NSC) said in a statement that the inclusion of Taiwan and its flag was an “honest mistake” by the social media team that shouldn’t be construed as any sort of shift in U.S. policy toward Taiwan — which is supported through trade and military equipment sales but is not formally recognized as an independent nation.

“The United States remains committed to our one-China policy,” the spokesperson said. “Our policy has been clear for decades and has not changed.”

That backtracking of signaled support that was quickly snatched away apparently didn’t sit well with Taiwan’s democratically-elected government, as the nation’s Foreign Ministry released a politely-worded statement that nonetheless took the Biden administration to task for the unnecessarily provocative tweet that riled up the ever-threatening communist regime.

“Regarding the reason for the deletion of this tweet, as the media has different interpretations, the Foreign Ministry has asked the representative office in the United States to remind the United States not to cause unnecessary speculation or misunderstanding from all walks of life due to the removal of the related tweet,” Taiwan Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Joanne Ou said in a statement.

“They should not be shunned”

Interestingly, President Biden’s point man on the Indo-Pacific Region, Kurt Campbell, made comments Tuesday that doubled down on the U.S. government’s longstanding and increasingly absurd balancing act between supporting Taiwan without provoking China, when he said, “We support a strong unofficial relationship with Taiwan. We do not support Taiwan independence.”

“We fully recognize and understand the sensitivities involved here. We do believe that Taiwan has a right to live in peace,” he added. “We want to see its international role, particularly in areas like vaccines and issues associated with the pandemic, they should have a role to play here, they should not be shunned in the international community.”
