RUSI Conservative Party Conference Fringe Event


Shapps was speaking at a Conservative party fringe event hosted by the Royal United Services Institute, a think tank. “I don’t think it’s entirely clear what would happen if indeed Trump won the nomination, if indeed Trump then won the election,” the defence secretary said. “One thing we do know about Trump is he has a big issue with China and he’s obviously concerned about Taiwan. Many experts would suggest that you don’t want to accidentally send the wrong message to China that force is OK to use.”
