https://bloom.bg/2OzOSMo Taipei Mayor Says Taiwan Is ‘Just a Product on a Shelf’ for Trump Taiwan must focus on making itself more valuable to President Donald Trump and accept its status as a pawn in the great power game between the U.S. and Chin a, Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je said. The outspoken former surgeon and potential presidential contender told Bloombe rg News that Taiwan shouldn’t overestimate the U.S.’s willingness to defend the island from an attack by its much bigger neighbor. Ko, 59, said Taiwan nee ded to boost its worth to America by strengthening shared values, such as demo cracy and economic transparency. “Taiwan is just a product on a shelf,” Ko said Wednesday at Taipei City Hall . “We have to have a very clear understanding of ourselves.” Such blunt assessments have helped make Ko one of Taiwan’s most popular polit icians since winning election as the capital city’s mayor as an independent i n 2014. Should he secure a second term in local elections Nov. 24, he’s consi dered a strong contender for president, something he repeatedly declined to ru le out. “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it,” he said. Ko attributed his political success to offering an alternative to the two fact ions who have long dominated local politics: the Kuomintang, which sees itself as the rightful ruler of a unified China, and the Democratic Progressive Part y, which aspires to independence. He’s also shaken up city policies, suspendi ng work on a 40,000-seat arena intended for last year’s University Games. “They support me because I am their only hope,” he said. “I am not perfect, but they put their hope in me because they are desperate.” Ko faces challenges from both sides during the Nov. 24 election: former lawmak ers Ting Shou-chung, of the KMT, and Pasuya Yao, of the DPP. A survey by broad caster TVBS last month found him leading Ting by 5 percentage points and Yao b y 26 percentage points. Ko -- a former ally of Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen -- has attempted to br idge the divide. He outraged independence supporters when he told a Shanghai c rowd during his first year in office that both sides of the Taiwan Strait belo nged to one family -- symbolism often evoked by unification advocates. “The Taiwan issue is just a part of the tensions between the U.S. and China, ” Ko told Bloomberg. Taiwan, which has been caught between the U.S. and China since the Kuomintang- led government fled to Taipei almost 70 years ago, has reemerged as a geopolit ical flash point amid Trump’s trade war. The U.S. has taken steps to improve political and military ties with Tsai’s administration in recent months, lead ing to protests from China. Before becoming mayor, Ko spent 17 years as the head of surgery at one of Taiw an’s top hospitals. His criticism of mainstream parities and sometimes profan e outbursts in interviews have helped him amass a strong social media followin g, with 1.9 million Facebook followers, compared with Tsai’s 2.2 million. Next month’s vote will show whether Ko can translate his popularity among Tai wanese under 40 years old into votes. He’s touting openness and freedom as a source of strength for Taiwan, citing an annual gay pride march last year in T aipei that drew more than 100,000 people. “These events represent an atmosphere of freedom,” he said. “You have to go to other countries to realize Taipei is a place where there is diversity of t hought.” -- ※ 發信站: 批踢踢實業坊(ptt.cc), 來自: ※ 文章網址: https://www.ptt.cc/bbs/HatePolitics/M.1539907980.A.C0D.html
