“I have long said that this policy is nonsense and should be changed — it is an insult to Taiwan,” Chabot said.

Subcommittee Chairman Matt Salmon, a Republican, said that he worried about the potential for cross-strait stability with China issuing “a steady stream” of threats.

“In a time when Taiwan’s security is not assured from coercion or potential attacks, I urge our administration to continue to support Taiwan,” Salmon said. “We must prioritize Taiwan’s active and meaningful participation on the global stage, ensure its self-defense capabilities are sufficient and ensure that its economy continues to grow vibrantly.”
