Representatives Tom Tiffany and Scott Perry have called for a scrapping of the United States' long-standing one-China policy and the resumption of formal ties with Taipei.
Trump could both box in his successor and solidify his recalibration of U.S.-China policy with one brilliant diplomatic move.

Trump said Friday that the "One China" policy was up for negotiation.
Beijing says the U.S.'s One China policy is the "bedrock" of the two countries' relationship.
