Taiwan’s outgoing President Tsai Ing-wen plans to flee in a U.S. plane if war erupts with China, according to an unsubstantiated report first published in 2021 and echoed in the run-up to the island’s January 2024 general election. Another story said Tsai had given her confidantes VIP “runaway” passes.
