Reince Priebus, Trump's pick to be his chief of staff, said Monday that Moore is not an adviser for Trump's transition, though Moore was listed as an adviser for Trump's presidential campaign. 'They discussed China, Russia, Iran, the European Union and other events and issues around the world'.
Mr Trump caused a stir last week when he held a call with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen - breaking nearly four decades of protocol.
Ms. Tsai's rise to the Taiwanese presidency last year prompted hope in Washington for a more pro-U.S. government than that of former President Ma Ying-jeo, a member of Taiwan's Chinese Nationalist Party who had spent the previous eight years adopting a more conciliatory posture toward Beijing.
Moore, however, said he welcomes Trump's unconventional tactics.
Though Vice-President-elect Mike Pence sought to clarify that Mr. Trump's conversation with the Taiwanese leader was only a courtesy of accepting a congratulatory call, it remains the most significant foreign policy signal yet from the President-elect.

China called on the United States on Tuesday (Dec 6) not to let Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen transit there when she visits Guatemala next month, days after President-elect Donald Trump irked Beijing by speaking to Tsai in a break with decades of precedent.

On Monday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said progress with the Chinese could be "undermined" by a flare-up over the sovereignty of Taiwan, the self-governing island the US broke diplomatic ties with in 1979. "Some of the progress that we have made in our relationship with China could be undermined by this issue flaring up". "We all see the value of stability in the region".
Gingrich added that the US policy regarding China has been negatively impacted by the fact that our leaders have been "intimidated by Beijing" for the past 40 years.
"There's no better option for China than to assume that Donald Trump is still a civilian and/or that he is a little naive about worldwide politics and not to make a big deal out of it", said Woo. "I don't think so!" the president-elect wrote in two tweets on December 4. "He's not the president of the United States right now, he's the president-elect".
"I have been impressed by the calm reaction of the Chinese leadership", Kissinger told a program hosted by the National Committee on U.S.
