Taiwan Travel Act signed into law

After passing the US Senate by unanimous consent on February 28, the Taiwan Travel Act was signed into law today by President Donald Trump as Public Law 115-135. The act first passed the House of Representatives on January 9. While the act encourages official visits between Taiwan and the United States, its implementation is completely up to the two governments.

The act has consistently drew ire from China, ranging from threats to members of Congress to strong dissatisfaction. China threatened Taiwan with war after the act passed.
