Stronger than Article 5 of the NATO Agreement, U.S. Will Defend Taiwan for TSMC Chips?
Following the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle, questions have arisen over whether the U.S. is willing and able to defend Taiwan should the CCP attempt a military takeover. President Biden has said that the U.S. will stand by Taiwan in the same manner it does with its NATO allies, Japan and South Korea, and with good reason: the majority of the semiconductor chips powering our personal, business and government devices are built by Taiwan-based TSMC, the global leader in chip manufacturing. Just how important is TSMC to the financial and technological security of the U.S.? Watch today’s Tea Time to find out.
