Washington – Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) released the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s call with the President of Taiwan: 

“I am pleased to hear that President-Elect Donald Trump has reengaged our friends in Taiwan at the highest level. For too long, Taiwan has been subjected to the bully tactics of the People’s Republic of China.”

“Since 1979, relations between the United States and Taiwan have suffered from a lack of communication due to the self-imposed restrictions that the United States maintains on high-level dialogue between United States and Taiwanese officials. That is why I introduced H.R. 6047 the Taiwan Travel Act this year.”

Representative Steve Chabot (R-OH) is the Chairman of the House Small Business Committee and is a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the House Judiciary Committee.
