The Washington ComPost:
"President-elect Donald Trump spoke Friday with Taiwan’s president, a major departure from decades of U.S. policy in Asia and a breach of diplomatic protocol with ramifications for the incoming president’s relations with China. ...News of the official outreach by Trump is likely to infuriate the regional military and economic power.
The exchange is one of a string of unorthodox conversations with foreign leaders that Trump has held since his election...Trump sent another tweet, apparently in response to criticism of the Taiwan call as potentially reckless...Conway bristled when asked whether Trump was properly briefed before the call on the government’s long-standing policy blahblahblah".......
In tradecraft, that is known as agitprop:
