Leave it to Ted Cruz – he offered the perfect answer to the media freakout over Trump’s call with Taiwan

In response to the media freakout over President-elect Donald Trump accepting a congratulatory call from the president of Taiwan, leave it to ever-pragmatic Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to put things into proper perspective.

Cruz took to social media Saturday to defend Trump speaking with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen — which was a departure from America’s established “one China” policy — saying it’s an “improvement” over what we’ve seen from President Barack Obama.

“I would much rather have Donald Trump talking to President Tsai than to Cuba’s Raul Castro or Iran’s Hasan Rouhani. This is an improvement,” Cruz tweeted.

Speaking of perspective, Trump made an interesting observation himself in face of all the media hubbub over his phone call.

Looking at things from the eyes of a businessman, Trump remarked on the hypocrisy at play: “Interesting how the U.S. sells Taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment but I should not accept a congratulatory call.”
