WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump's nominee to be the US ambassador to China took a tough line on Tuesday on China's development of "artificial islands" in the South China Sea.

"China cannot be allowed to use its artificial islands to coerce its neighbors or limit freedom of navigation or overflight," Iowa's Republican Gov.
