Another way to help Taiwan and America

China is trying to show the world this week that it can isolate Taiwan, with a series of live-fire military exercises and trade restrictions. One nonmilitary way the United States can respond is to expand economic and free trade ties with island democracy.

Beijing says its escalations are a response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan this week. After meeting the President Tsai Ing-wen, the Speaker of the House said she had discussed “a trade deal that might be possible and soon.” This is good news, and the Democrats who currently lead Washington could act swiftly to help Taiwan resist China’s economic coercion.
