In a phone call to Chinese President Xi Jinping, President Donald Trump backed down on prior threats that everything was on the table. In his latest reversal, Trump backs ‘One China’ policy.

President Donald Trump has told Chinese President Xi Jinping that he will respect the “One China” policy, in a move that will ease tensions between the powers.

In his first conversation with Xi since entering the Oval Office, Trump said the White House would honor the “One China” policy under which the US recognizes Beijing — and not Taipei — as the seat of the Chinese government.

The call with Xi — on Thursday evening Washington time — came as Trump was preparing to welcome Shinzo Abe, the Japanese prime minister, to the White House on Friday. The decision to speak to Xi on the eve of the Trump-Abe summit was designed to reduce the fallout from the lavish welcome planned for the Japanese leader. Abe will dine with Trump four times, fly on Air Force One to the president’s resort in Florida, and play a round of golf with his US counterpart.
