A Trump Corp. businesswoman met with a Taiwanese politician regarding the potential building of luxury hotels in Taiwan just weeks before President-elect Donald Trump’s controversial phone call with President Tsai Ing-wen.

"She said she was associated with the Trump corporation and she would like to propose a possible investment project in the future, especially hotels," an official familiar with the project who spoke on condition of anonymity told The Guardian.

The meeting took place in September with Taoyuan Mayor Cheng Wenptran on the outskirts of the capital and lasted 15-20 minutes, said the source. The mayor’s spokesman confirmed the visit, which focused on luxury hotels as part of the Aerotropolis project, a large development being planned around Taiwan’s new airport.

"One thing quite sure from her side was that she would like to bring the Trump corporation here to build the hotel," said the official, who identified the representative only as Ms. Chen.

Trump's phone call sparked outrage among the international community as it broke a decades-old diplomatic protocol with China, which views Taiwan as a traitor province. China lodged a complaint with the U.S. over the call, the first between a U.S. president or president-elect since 1979 when Washington established relations with China.
