It’s like this monster that’s always hungry and thirsty and devouring the earth.

"Nothing this Administration has done today changes that in any way." -- Business Wire
Bonnie Glaser, senior adviser Center for Strategic and International Studies
 “My guess is that Trump himself doesn’t have clue...Having this mishap occur before he is president is better than having it occur after he is president. I expect Beijing to find a way to give him an education on Taiwan.”  -- China blasts 'petty' Taiwan call
