When President Biden publicly spoke of the US determination to defend Taiwan in case of China’s attacks on Taiwan, how have nationalists in China and Taiwan reacted?

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, announced that the US would support Taiwan in the case of China’s military intrusion into the independent island. This remark was met with different reactions on the side of the Chinese nationalists and Taiwan’s nationalists. Since the US proclaimed support toward Taiwan in its resistance to the Chinese invasion, Taiwanese nationalists were empowered by the expressed support. However, the ambiguity of the US’s positions imposed a controversy on the perception of Biden’s words.

In particular, Taiwan’s nationalists stated the following: “Taiwan secessionist forces may be encouraged through his words and further stir up trouble by taking advantage of this statement, misleading the people on the island.” On the contrary, the representatives of the Chinese side, especially Chinese nationalists, expressed their anti-American positions.
