Trump Bends To Beijing On One-China Policy In Lengthy Call To Chinese President Xi Jinping

President Donald Trump has agreed to adhere to the longstanding one-China policy, despite his previous statements.
Trump called Chinese President Xi Jinping late Thursday night to discuss the bilateral relationship. During the “lengthy conversation,” Trump “agreed, at the request of President Xi, to honor our ‘One China’ policy,” an official White House statement revealed.

President Trump is in good company with this, 
Chinese media reports that Xi appreciated Trump’s decision to uphold the one-China policy, which states that there is only one China represented by the People’s Republic of China. The Chinese government perceives the “one-China” policy as a “prerequisite for the development of relations between China and the rest of the world.”
Trump rattled Beijing in early December by breaking with decades of diplomatic practice and protocol and accepting a phone call from Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen.
