US denies China policy change after Taiwan leader speech in LA. Why?

I do not recognize the claimed territorial rights of the totalitarian dictatorship of mainland China over the independent, democratic, nation-state of Taiwan, and neither should anyone else.

I have never agreed to the US switching to the dictatorship's "one-China" position.

President Donald Trump's administration denied Tuesday any change to its "One-China" policy after Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen made a political speech in the US, the first time in 15 years a Taiwanese leader has done so.

Trump is wholly inconsistent even while twisting. He places heavy sanctions on Venezuela, which is not a dictatorship but a democracy under attack by libertarian and crony capitalists for being to generous to its poor. Meanwhile, he cozies up to dictators, such as in Saudi Arabia.
