China has lodged a formal complaint with the White House after president-elect Donald Trump spoke with the president of Taiwan.
Errol Barnett has the latest from Washington.
President-elect Donald Trump defended his break with decades of US foreign policy, tweeting
"Interesting how the U.S. sells Taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment but I should not accept a congratulatory call."
That call came on Friday from Taiwan's new president, Tsai Ing-wen.
But defy the U.S.'s one China policy in place since 1979.
It identifies Beijing is the official point of diplomatic contact for Taiwan
since its sovereignty is in dispute.
The White House said it will remain firmly committed to the one China policy.
And over the last two weeks, since our victory, I've spoken to many foreign leaders.
And I will tell you, they have such respect for us.
As Mr. Trump continues to speak with his global counterparts,
he's huddling with his transition team, trying to pick his Secretary of State.
He unofficially announced retired general James Mattis as his Secretary of Defense.
But former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told CBS
Trump needs civilian perspectives in his cabinet.
"which doesn't mean you can't have a military background,
but at the same time, in those jobs, you've got to exercise
the ability to understand political issues to deal with broader issues."
Mr. Trump is making progress in his promise to prevent some jobs from being outsourced.
Last week, he announced tax incentives for the Carrier manufacturing company
which he says prevented more than a thousand jobs from going to Mexico.
well now renown Ford Motor Company is reportedly interested in negotiating a similar deal.
