Trump vowed to deny China access to islands that don’t exist on household globes and
China is run by a party that has never lost—or won—in its 70 years of existence.
Beijing wants Washington to recognize “one China”, but that “China”, regardless
of which claimant defines it, is engaged in a publicly-funded military war between two
