The United States does not support Taiwanese independence: the president said so Joe Biden, after the victory in the elections of the supporter of independence from Beijing, Lai Ching-te. Responding to journalists who asked him what Washington’s position on Taiwan was after the election, Biden said “we don’t support independence.”

«We congratulate Dr. Lai Ching-te on his victory in Taiwan’s presidential election. We also congratulate the people of Taiwan for participating in free and fair elections and demonstrating the strength of their democratic system.” The US Secretary of State writes it, Antony Blinken.
