Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen wins 2nd term with record-breaking support


In Taiwan, President Tsai Ing-wen has won
reelection with a record number of votes in what’s being called a stingin rebuke of China.
President Tsai won in a landslide on Saturday with 57 percent of the vote and a record-breaking
8-point-2 million ballots. Her main rival, Han Kuo-yu, of the China-friendly
Kuomintang, got 39 percent. Tsai said the results were a response to Taiwan’s
sovereignty and democracy being threatened. It’s a blow to mainland China, which sees
Taiwan as its own and has been ramping up economic and military pressure on the island
in a bid to convince voters to support pro-China politicians.

  • Good for Taiwan! Only people with real communism staring at them seem wise enough to try to escape it. While much of the free world swallows the lie that communism is an answer to social ills. Why do so many refuse to learn from history?
