BLACKBURN BEAST MODE: Tenn. Senator Calls China 'New Axis of Evil' —Then Lands in Taiwan

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.25.22

One thing’s clear: Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn will not kowtow to China.

According to a report from Fox News, Blackburn, the latest U.S. lawmaker to visit Taiwan, isn’t pulling her punches while discussing America’s biggest opponent on the world stage.

“The Indo-Pacific Region is the next frontier for the New Axis of Evil,” Blackburn said in a statement that did not mention her visit to Taiwan. “Meeting with leaders from Fiji, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea was an important step in showcasing America’s commitment to the region and expanding our strategic relationships.”

“Continuing these long-established partnerships is important to the success of both East Asian nations and the United States. I am grateful for their leadership. We must stand against the Chinese Communist Party,” she added.

Blackburn shared the moment she landed in Taiwan on Twitter, adding a message to China.

“I just landed in Taiwan to send a message to Beijing — we will not be bullied. The United States remains steadfast in preserving freedom around the globe, and will not tolerate efforts to undermine our nation and our allies.”

From Fox News:

China has argued that visits by U.S. lawmakers infringe on America’s One China Policy, which states that the U.S. acknowledges the Beijing government as the sole government of China.

China reacted to the previous August visits by launching live-fire military exercises surrounding Taiwan in an apparent rehearsal for an invasion.

Taiwan first split from mainland China following a civil war between democratic and communist forces in 1949.

While the U.S. has agreed not to hold formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan, it has supplied the government with means of defense and other support.
