Yesterday in Taipei, China, a pro Trump rally was underway in order to show support for Trump and oppose the Chinese Communist Party.
At the parade, which was organized by Epoch Media Group, you could see rally goers carried slogans such as: “Taiwan-US cooperation, we support Trump to dispose communist China” and “Taiwan, Fight for Trump.”
In addition, some participants also carried signs such as “Stop the Steal” and “Make America Great Again.”
Despite Trump’s claims of election fraud, the US Electoral College on Monday affirmed US president-elect Joe Biden’s victory, awarding him 306 electoral votes — more than the 270 needed to win — to Trump’s 232. The result still must be confirmed by a joint session of the US Congress on Jan. 6. Trump already called for his supporters to rally on Jan. 6.
Accompanied with music, the rally goers went several blocks around Taipei 101 and ended at a nearby plaza. Event organizers estimated that about 8,000 people turned out for the event.
“Without US protection, Taiwan would not have its freedom, and instead we would be slaves ruled by communist China. Trump is the best US president for Taiwan, signing laws to have officials visit and sell US weapons for us to fend off a Chinese military attack,” Rishen Wu said. Rishen Wu is campaigning for the independence of Taiwan from China.
In the crowd, an American, who identified himself as Jerry, said he was really surprised and positively shocked to see so many people gathered to show support for Trump.
“Trump knows what it takes to counter China’s military adventurism. He has done the most for Taiwan, safeguarding its freedom and democracy… For Biden, I am not so sure if he will defend Taiwan so strongly like Trump has done in recent years,” he said.
