The state-owned newspaper proceeded to warn that if Trump were to continue down that road once he takes office, "a period of fierce, damaging interactions will be unavoidable, as Beijing will have no choice but to take off the gloves".
Trump suggested in an interview with the Wall Street Journal "everything is under negotiation", refusing to confirm he would adhere to the One China policy the current US government acknowledges and which Beijing says is necessary for stable US/China relations.
The number of young people who express a strong Taiwanese national identity would reduce dramatically if the U.S. factor were removed and China invaded, according to former Mainland Affairs Council minister Su Chi (蘇起). Hence his tactic to use One China to get Beijing to change its economic policies.
The Chinese foreign ministry hit back on Saturday declaring that the "One China" principle was the political foundation of China-US relations and was "non-negotiable".
Trump's assertion comes after the publicly-declared phone call between him and Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen after the former's election win. Without that, "according to my understanding, China should stop any formal diplomatic relationship with the U.S".
On the other hand, if US President-elect Donald Trump prepares to adopt trade protectionism and nativism, it will lead to isolation and is in the interest of no one.
Trump's nominee as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told a confirmation hearing last week that the U.S. should deny China access to islets under its control in the South China Sea.
The U.S. upheld the "one-China" policy for nearly four decades, since the U.S. officially severed diplomatic ties with Taiwan in 1979.
Trump claimed then that he only accepted a congratulatory call.
"You would expect them to say that". On Monday foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying reiterated China's position on Taiwan, saying "anyone who tries to take this one China policy as a bargaining chip, for whatever motive, will be met with firm opposition".
"Everything is under negotiation, including One China", he said in the interview published on Friday.
However, Trump appears to be keen on using the threat of rejecting One China as a bargaining tool with Beijing. "Now, we look forward to even closer cooperation and communication with the new administration in a few days time", Cui said.
'Therefore, there's no need for China to take his remarks seriously or further respond to what he said'.
On the South China Sea, Turnbull said he "urged all parties to exercise self-restraint, and to avoid actions that would escalate tensions, including the militarization of outposts in the South China Sea".
She explained: 'To be honest, I don't have any feeling towards her, I'm so focussed on and so glad they found my grandbaby. She even defended Williams in a Facebook post, saying the alleged child snatcher "raised me with everything I needed".
