Yahoo News reported that –

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump spoke by phone on Friday with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, a transition team spokeswoman said, in a move likely to infuriate China and expected to complicate relations.

The call, confirmed by Trump transition spokeswoman Hope Hicks, was the first such contact with Taiwan by a president-elect or president since President Jimmy Carter adopted a one-China policy in 1979.

Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is one of many in the media and in the Democratic Party who freaked out.  He said Trump was entitled to change policy, but his approach was potentially dangerous –

What has happened in the last 48 hours is not a shift. These are major pivots in foreign policy w/out any plan. That’s how wars start.”

The Democrats are not used to having US Presidents build relationships with democracies.  They and the media on the other hand don’t have a problem with Obama doing the wave at a baseball game in Cuba with Communist murdering Castros.
