India is the world's largest democracy. Taiwan is fighting to keep itself a democracy. And the US is the world's most powerful democracy that should be supporting other democracies around the world. However the US has been failing to support both Taiwan and India as true allies for different reasons. In this episode of China Unscripted, we discuss why the US is failing as a superpower to uphold democracy, why the US relationship with India has gotten so complicated, why US support for Taiwan often falls short, and the fate of Daniel Suidani, the former premier of the Solomon Islands' province Malaita, who's been a fierce China critic. Joining us in this episode is Cleo Paskal, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
