Branstad a Possible Pick for China Ambassador

There are reports that President-elect Donald Trump is picking Iowa Governor Terry Branstad for the post of Ambassador to China.

That position will be a critical one in the wake of Trump's controversial phone conversation with Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-Wen.

The Washington Post reported that Branstad has a personal friendship with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing in the grand scheme of things, but at least it could help smooth over the fracas caused by Trump's Taiwan call.
