U.S. President-elect Donald Trump speaks at a "Thank You USA" tour rally in Grand Rapids

U.S. says 'one China' policy should not be used as bargaining chip

By Ayesha Rascoe and Matt Spetalnick WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House on Monday insisted that Washington’s “one China” policy should not be used as a “bargaining chip” with Beijing after President-elect Donald Trump said the United States did not necessarily have to be bound by its long-standing position that Taiwan is part of China. Signaling further resistance Trump will face in Washington if he tries to overturn a principle that has underpinned more than four decades of U.S.-China relations, Republican U.S. Senator John McCain said he personally backed the “China policy” and no one should “leap to conclusions” that the president-elect would abandon it.
