(FreedomWire.org) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi might visit Taiwan during her trip to Asia. She was initially going in April, but canceled after testing positive for COVID.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is still going to Asia, knowing the trip has the potential of upsetting the Chinese Communist Party.
Pelosi is scheduled to visit several allied Asian countries during her multi-day tour of the continent.
One possible destination with major ramifications is Taiwan — officially known as the Republic of China. The island has been expecting a visit from Pelosi, but recent threats from the People’s Republic of China have drawn global attention to the potential visit.
President Donald Trump reacted to the trip by blasting Pelosi saying she will only make the situation “worse.”
Trump went on Truth Social to say, “Why is Nancy Pelosi getting involved with China and Taiwan other than to make trouble and more money, possibly involving insider trading and information, for her cheatin’ husband? Everything she touches turns to Chaos, Disruption, and “Crap” (her second big Congress “flop” happening now!), and the China mess is the last thing she should be involved in – She will only make it worse. Crazy Nancy just inserts herself and causes great friction and hatred. She is such a mess!!!”
A propagandist for the Chinese Communist Party threatened Pelosi over the trip.
“If U.S. fighter jets escort Pelosi’s plane into Taiwan, it is invasion,” Hu Xijin, an analyst for the Chinese state-controlled Global Times propaganda outlet tweeted, according to the Free Beacon. “The PLA has the right to forcibly dispel Pelosi’s plane and the U.S. fighter jets, including firing warning shots and making tactical movement of obstruction. If ineffective, then shoot them down.”
