    Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) vowed to work to cut off aid to El Salvador after the country’s government switched its diplomatic recognition from Taiwan to China, a move that could usher in the first Chinese-controlled military base in the Americas.

    Rubio on Tuesday slammed El Salvador's decision to switch diplomatic loyalties from Taiwan to China, writing on his Twitter feed that such a move would be a "terrible mistake for the govt of El Salvador."

    Rubio went on to question why the U.S. should continue to provide "so much" foreign aid to El Salvador after such a dramatic diplomatic shift.

    Late Tuesday afternoon, the Florida Republican said he had spoken to President Trump "just minutes" ago on the topic and joined Sen. Cory Gardner (R., Colo.) in writing legislation "to end foreign aid to #ElSalvador after their leftist government decided to abandon #Taiwan in favor of #China."

    Rubio and Gardner are writing an amendment to the "minibus" appropriations bill the Senate will consider this week.

    Taiwan earlier on Tuesday announced it would sever diplomatic ties to El Salvador in advance of its anticipated shift to China. Taiwan had refused to foot the bill for the Port of La Union project

    El Salvador can send 1/3 of their population to invade the united Sates and that doesn't get Rubio's attention at all, but let them switch diplomatic loyalties and that grabs his attention.
