A crowd yesterday marched in Taipei to rally support for US President Donald Trump and show opposition to the Chinese Communist Party.
At the parade organized by Epoch Media Group — publisher of the Epoch Times and affiliated with Falun Gong — participants carried placards with slogans such as: “Taiwan-US cooperation, we support Trump to dispose communist China” and “Taiwan, Fight for Trump.”
Some signs echoed messages used by Trump supporters who believe he won the US election last month, with phrases such as: “Stop the Steal” and “Make America Great Again.”
Despite Trump’s claims of election fraud, the US Electoral College on Monday affirmed US president-elect Joe Biden’s victory, awarding him 306 electoral votes — more than the 270 needed to win — to Trump’s 232. The result still must be confirmed by a joint session of the US Congress on Jan. 6.
With drums and music, the march traveled several blocks around Taipei 101, ending at a nearby plaza, where talks and music videos were presented and streamed online.
Event organizers estimated that about 8,000 people turned out for the event.
“Without US protection, Taiwan would not have its freedom, and instead we would be slaves ruled by communist China. Trump is the best US president for Taiwan, signing laws to have officials visit and sell US weapons for us to fend off a Chinese military attack,” pro-Taiwan independence campaigner Rishen Wu (吳日昇) said at the march.
In the crowd, an American, who identified himself as Jerry, said he was touched to see so many Taiwanese at the rally.
“Trump knows what it takes to counter China’s military adventurism. He has done the most for Taiwan, safeguarding its freedom and democracy… For Biden, I am not so sure if he will defend Taiwan so strongly as Trump has done in recent years,” he said.

Thousands of protesters in Taiwan rally support Trump and take down the CCP
A protest organized by the Epoch Times in Taiwan was held in front of Xinyi Square next to the Taipei 101 Building on 19 December, 1 pm. The theme of this rally was supporting President Trump and taking down the CCP.
Following the U.S. election fraud occurred, the US mainstream media has been pushing fake news and misinformation, many of which were reproduced by the major media outlets in Taiwan. President Tsai Ing-wen was the first to congratulate Biden on his declared victory in the presidential election and said she was looking forward to working together with the Biden administration.
This is also coupled with the US arms sales to Taiwan and the provocations of the CCP on the other side of the Taiwan Strait in recent years.
Anxious pro-Trump activists have taken to Facebook to voice their support for President Trump. Two weeks ago, an online pro-Trump rally was held to spread messages of anti-fraud and anti-Chinese Communist Party and to fight for truth and justice. Despite various fake news on the Internet that the protest was canceled, today, the silent voices were silent no longer. The voice of these anxious netizens is clear: they showed the Taiwanese people that they want truth and they support President Trump.
