December 13, 2016: Chinese analysts have dismissed Donald trump’s questions on the continuance of One-China policy saying that the statements made by the US President-elect is based on superficial knowledge and Beijing should ask him to stick to the status quo.

The One-China policy states that countries with diplomatic relations with People’s Republic of China(Mainland China) must not have any official relations with Republic of China(Taiwan) and vice versa.

In a statement made by President-elect Donald Trump, United States can change its long-standing position of considering Taiwan as a part of China. He questioned the four decades old policy of China and whether the US should continue the policy.

Trump made these comments on Fox News Sunday after he had prompted a protest from China after he accepted a call from Taiwan’s president on 2nd December. Trump said that if he hadn’t taken that call it would have been disrespectful. The president had called just to congratulate him on his win.

“I fully understand the ‘one China’ policy, but I don’t know why we have to be bound by a ‘one China’ policy unless we make a deal with China having to do with other things, including trade,” Trump told Fox.

However, China hasn’t responded officially to these statements made by Trump in an interview with Fox News.

According to PTI, the state-run global Times quotes the Chinese analyst saying that Trump should understand the complexity of Sino-US ties and stop being manipulated by some other forces.

“We’re being hurt very badly by China with devaluation, with taxing us heavy at the borders when we don’t tax them, with building a massive fortress in the middle of the South China Sea, which they shouldn’t be doing, and frankly with not helping us at all with North Korea,” Trump said.

“You have North Korea. You have nuclear weapons and China could solve that problem and they’re not helping us at all.

Trump said that China is not cooperating with the US on its currency, North Korea, or in the disputed South China issue. He said that China is building a massive fortress.

Professor at China Foreign Affairs University, Li Haidong, said, “Trump’s knowledge about Sino-US relations, particularly the Taiwan question, is very superficial, which gives him the nerve to say whatever he likes. As a businessman, he thinks it is quite normal to do business, but he has not realized that the Taiwan question is not a business to China. The Taiwan question is not negotiable

An illustration of the nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill

A hilarious rhyme that children often chant cheerily while jumping around, Jack and Jill is another example of the dark history covered up in light-hearted rhyme. Instead of England though, this is a rhyme that sheds light on the history of France.

Unlike other rhymes, the rhyme is part fiction and part history, since only the first two lines can be taken as an allusion to the past.
