Another supporter named Tommy Young joked, “bad news. You’ve lost the business of people that live in California and Michigan. How will you ever survive?”

And on Sunday, just one day after China’s military undertook one of its biggest Taiwan “flyovers” yet (and just days following President Joe Biden’s entry into the White House), Chinese air force planes including 12 fighter jets entered Taiwan’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ) for a second day.
