WASHINGTON/TAIPEI (Reuters) – Two US warships- Mustin and Benfold – passed through the Taiwan Strait on Saturday on a voyage that will likely be viewed in the self-ruled island as a sign of support by President Donald Trump amid heightened tension with China. Taiwan’s Defense Ministry said the ships were moving in a northeastern direction, adding that the situation was in accordance with regulations. Captain Charlie Brown, a spokesman for US Pacific Fleet, said the US Navy Ships conducted a routine transit through the international waters of the Taiwan Strait and have done so for many years.
