China should "significantly" increase military spending and build more nuclear weapons as a response to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, an editorial in the nationalistic Global Times newspaper said Thursday.The president-elect frequently savaged China on the campaign trail, even calling it America's "enemy" and pledging to stand up to a country he says views the U.S. as a pushover.The editorial follows a Twitter tirade by Trump earlier in the week blasting China's trade and foreign policies, as well as a protocol-shattering decision to accept a congratulatory phone call from Taiwanese leader Tsai Ing-wen.A Thursday editorial said that though the Asian giant had thus far responded to Trump with "laudable" prudence, further provocations from the unpredictable politician would jeopardize Sino-U.S. ties.
