China warns US on Taiwan leader's stopover

Chinese state media has warned the US against deviating from the one-China policy, hours after the Taiwanese leader stopped briefly in Houston. Tsai Ing-wen met Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Greg Abbott during her stopover en route to Central America. But a spokeswoman for President-elect Donald Trump said on Saturday neither he nor his team would meet Ms Tsai.  China reacted angrily when Mr Trump spoke to Ms Tsai by telephone late last year, in a major break from the past.
