"We will never allow anyone, at any time or in any form, to separate Taiwan from China", Wu said, adding that protests have been lodged with the Pentagon.
"He is not a war hero", Trump told pollster Frank Luntz, who was hosting a July 2015 question-and-answer session at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa.
Wu said the act goes against the one-China policy, damages the development of Sino-US military-to-military relations and undermines mutual trust and cooperation between the two countries.
Yesterday, President Trump signed into law the new National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The president made a speech before his signature at Fort Drum, a northern NY military base, but didn't mention the ailing senator's name.
The bill, signed by US President Donald Trump on Monday, authorizes military spending and includes watered-down controls on US government contracts with China's ZTE Corp and Huawei Technologies Co Ltd.
And in a move that could anger Beijing, the legislation provides that the USA should enhance support for the military capacity of Taiwan, the self-ruled island which Beijing considers a breakaway province to be taken back by force if necessary.
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan noted that the legislation calls for a 2.6-percent pay raise for troops in 2019, the biggest in nine years.
The NDAA for fiscal year 2019 includes two provisions pertaining to Taiwan.
The law also bars the USA from selling F-35 fighter jets to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member Turkey. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.
Turkey plans to purchase 100 F-35 fighter jets in the coming years. "The National Defence Authorization Act is the most significant investment in our Military and our warfighters in modern history!", the US President tweeted.
The Bill also directs the Secretary of Defence to study whether Turkey's planned deployment of the Russian-made S-400 missile defence system will risk the security of several US-made weapons used by Turkey, including the F-35 jet.
