Criticizing Trump, White House says Taiwan `not a bargaining chip`

President Barack Obama`s White House on Monday took aim at Donald Trump`s recent comments on Taiwan, saying the long-standing alliance should not be used as a "bargaining chip" with Beijing.



District of Columbia: President Barack Obama`s White House on Monday took aim at Donald Trump`s recent comments on Taiwan, saying the long-standing alliance should not be used as a "bargaining chip" with Beijing.

After the president-elect suggested the United States could jettison its "One China policy" -- a diplomatic maneuver allowing Washington to do business with Beijing and its rivals in Taipei -- if China does not "make a deal," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the island should not be used as "leverage."
