Huang Zhixian, an anchorwoman of a Taiwanese political commentary program, gained many more followers on her Sina microblog after she posted a strong response to US Vice President Mike Pence's latest speech on China delivered on October 4, in which he claimed that the US has made a great contribution to China's rise, while China repaid the US by going against freedom and fair trade and even trying to “meddle in the US election.” The speech triggered strong protest from the Chinese government and the public, and Huang's open letter to Pence which listed how the US took part in bullying, partitioning and controlling China in the late Qing Dynasty and the Republican era (from around 1900-1949), was viewed as one of the best ripostes. “We understand the US'S negative imagination of China's rise based on its desire to control the whole globe, but it is not wise for the US to dimensionally suppress China's rise all around,” Huang wrote in the open letter. Huang is well known across the Strait for her staunch support of reunification between the mainland and Taiwan. Her letter has been shared over
