FOLLOWING an official complaint from China over Donald Trump's phone call with President Tsai Ing-Wen of Taiwan - which Beijing considers to be a rogue province - the US President-elect (pictured) has hit back on Twitter. "Did China ask us if it was OK to devalue their currency (making it hard for our companies to compete), heavily tax our products going into their country (the US doesn't tax them) or to build a massive military complex in the middle of the South China Sea?” Mr Trump tweeted, before adding "I don't think so!”.
