Chinese state-run media called the Democratic Progressive Party's ideas on Taiwan's independence "hallucinations."
The response came after Taiwan elected Tsai Ing-wen of the DPP as the country's first female president.
The Global Times, published by China's Communist Party, said in an editorial, "Tsai should keep in mind that if she revisits Chen’s dangerous path to cross the red line of cross-Straits relations, she will meet a dead end."
