Major Taiwanese newspaper Apple Daily reported that Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen organized a top-level meeting in the evening right after the final result of the U.S. election was reported. Tsai Ing-wen listened to the reports from the top executives of the State Council and the Secretary of the National Security Council. She asked the response team to take action in order to maintain the stability of the financial market and to keep close ties with Trump’s transition team. The Taiwanese Presidential spokesman told the press that President Tsai Ing-wen has confidence in the new Trump administration since traditionally the U.S. Republican Party has supported a positive relationship with Taiwan. She expects a win-win situation in the U.S.-Taiwan relationship based on mutual interest and values.
