"There have been no authorized visits to Taiwan on behalf of Trump Hotels for the purposes of development, nor are there any active conversations," the representative said, as quoted by the Wall Street Journal on Saturday.
Trump spoke with Tsai Ing-wen on Friday in a move that broke with the White House’s four-decade-long policy on what Beijing considers its breakaway province.
Trump emphasized in a tweet the talks were not his initiative. He said President Tsai congratulated him on his November 8 victory.
After Chinese Nationalist forces were defeated by Mao Zedong’s Communists, the Nationalist government moved to Taiwan in 1949. Since then, Beijing has viewed the self-ruled, democratic island as a breakaway province. The United States, along with many other countries, does not recognize Taiwan as a sovereign nation and sticks officially to a "One China" position, but has kept informal relations with the island after severing diplomatic ties with it in 1979.
