(The Diplomat, By Kent Wang) After Mattis's unexpected resignation and then his even further unexpected early dismissal from the U.S. Department of Defense, Taiwan has been left shocked and afraid of increasing unreliability from the United States President. The relationship between the United States and China, already tense due to increasingly complex trade disputes, may escalate into a violent conflict due to the United States's support of Taiwan if dealt with without care. While Taiwanese observers saw Mattis as a careful balancer, a post-Mattis future leaves much unanswered. <Accessed 2018-12-29>
