Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on President-elect Trump's phone call with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen:

"America's policy toward Taiwan is governed by the Taiwan Relations Act, under which we maintain close ties with Taiwan and support its democratic system. I commend President-elect Trump for his conversation with President Tsai Ing-wen, which reaffirms our commitment to the only democracy on Chinese soil. I have met with President Tsai twice and I'm confident she expressed to the president-elect the same desire for closer relations with the United States."
