NANCY HAS LANDED: Speaker Pelosi Touches Down in Taiwan Amid Rising Chinese Tensions

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.02.22

Despite threats from President Xi Jinping and multiple state-affiliated media outlets, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has touched down in Taiwan; she’s the highest-ranking American official to visit the self-ruled island that is claimed by China for 25 years.

From AP News:

Pelosi’s visit has triggered increased tensions between China and the United States. China claims Taiwan as part of its territory, to be annexed by force if necessary, and views visits by foreign government officials as recognition of the island’s sovereignty.

China had warned of “resolute and strong measures” if Pelosi went ahead with the trip. The Biden administration did not explicitly urge her to call it off, while seeking to assure Beijing it would not signal any change in U.S. policy on Taiwan.
