As of November 12, the results of the U.S. mid-term elections have not yet been finalized, but the situation has become clear, and it can basically be considered that the Republican Party has regained control of the House of Representatives. According to the latest news from foreign media, the Democrats have now won 50 seats in the Senate, extending their control of the Senate. American public opinion generally believes that there is no “red wave” in this election, and the Democratic Party “wins a small loss”. The reason for this result is mainly because the two parties are “bad” and have obvious governance dilemmas.
In the past two years, the Biden administration has enhanced its “substantial relationship” with Taiwan, mainly at the political level. For example, Biden has publicly advocated “assisting the defense of Taiwan” four times, and senior officials such as Secretary of State Blinken have repeatedly made “supporting Taiwan” remarks. , and even approved House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan in August 2022. The United States wooed its allies and partners to intervene in the Taiwan issue. For example, the United States called for the “G7” (G7) meeting to falsely claim to be “concerned about the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait”, support Lithuania’s blatant violation of the one-China principle to establish a “Taiwan Representative Office”, and support Taiwan’s participation in the world International organizations such as the Health Assembly. The Biden administration also clamored for the “decoupling” of the cross-strait economy, asked Taiwan to join the “Platoon China” high-tech alliance it led, and urged global semiconductor production giant TSMC to set up factories in the United States.
