Before, everyone recognized Taiwan as the "official" China. With China's rise to power, everyone started recognizing mainland China as the real China. Taiwan got marginalized and many countries stopped recognizing it as a separate country. The US is one of the few countries that work with Taiwan and treat it as separate from China. The US sells arms to the Taiwanese military and trains them in the US.

So think of it as this way, it's like North and South Korea. Same but with different govts.
