It’s hard to find a world leader who’s had a better 2020 than Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen.

She won re-election in January in a landslide, oversaw one of the world’s best responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and helmed an economic recovery that has boosted Taiwan’s stock exchange to record heights. The central bank last week revised up its 2020 growth target to 1.6 percent, making it an outlier among global peers as most major economies shrink.

But Tsai does have one major problem: The Communist Party is threatening her life, with its Global Times newspaper saying over the weekend she would be "wiped out” in a war if she violated China’s anti-secession law.
