JUST IN: China Flies Nuclear Bomber Over South China Sea As Warning To Trump

Is congress watching they still have time to do the right thing remove Trump pick a new president or have a new election get the electoral college to do what it was designed to do and stop Trump from becoming president of the most powerful country on Earth. It’s so funny how he doesn’t take to Twitter on the most important issues as such. He’d rather put the American people at risk all for personal gain and attention. I swear man. Donald Trump cannot be our President. Way too many professionals in our military to be taking orders from this guy.

According to LA The Pentagon found out this past Friday that China flew a nuclear-capable bomber outside of its borders and around Taiwan less than a week before President-elect Donald Trump’s phone call with Taiwan’s president.

China’s Xian H-6 bomber flew along the disputed “nine-dash line,” which surrounds the South China Sea and dozens of disputed islands. These islands – including Taiwan – have been claimed by China, along with other countries in the region. This marks the first long-range flight along the demarcation line in more than 18 months, and caused Japan to scramble fighter jets in response.

China Is Sending A Message
The U.S. officials who originally reported this to Fox News say that it was designed to send a message to Trump’s incoming administration. It is very likely that Trump only agitated Beijing further by having his unprecedented phone call with the president of Taiwan, which was the first by a U.S. president-elect or president since President Jimmy Carter switched diplomatic recognition from Taiwan to China in 1979.

Trump created a massive amount of controversy with his phone call, leading to protests from Beijing and a stern warning from the Chinese government. This is all coming at a time where China has been steadily militarizing the disputed islands surrounding it.

China Militarizes Disputed Islands
Reports have stated that China is currently building up these contested islands with airplane hangers, runways, and surface-to-air missile systems. Combined with the bold show of power that was the flight of this nuclear-capable bomber, it’s getting increasingly worrying that our President-elect has been provoking China through diplomatic gaffes and boneheaded tweets.

Fox reported that Admiral Harry Harris, the head of the U.S. Pacific Command, has been repeatedly warning that China’s is militarizing its surrounding islands for the last year. Given these circumstances, it would really be nice to have an incoming president with diplomatic experience and a much steadier finger on the button.
