China Issues Military Warning about Nancy Pelosi

'I think what the president was saying is [that] maybe the military was afraid our plane would get shot down or something like that by the Chinese... '

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) China apparently issued military warnings against Taiwan regarding American House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s potential visit to the far-eastern nation, the Financial Times reported.

The warnings were allegedly strongly worded, and included potential military intervention in order to stop the trip from taking place.

US National Security adviser Jake Sullivan and other senior National Security Council officials warned against the trip, saying it was a bad idea because China had ramped up the rhetoric. 

Beijing has a history of responding violently to those who attempt to deal directly with Taiwan. China has long claimed territorial rights over the small Southeast Asian nation.

According to China’s foreign ministry, a “resolute and strong” response is on the table for anyone like Pelosi.

After hearing about the potential trip, President Biden chided Pelosi for what he believes is her recklessness, suggesting that the trip is simply “not a good idea right now.”

Pelosi denied ever speaking to Biden about the trip, but said that she had heard rumors from military personnel.

“I think what the president was saying is [that] maybe the military was afraid our plane would get shot down or something like that by the Chinese,” she said. “I’ve heard it anecdotally, but I haven’t heard it from the president.” 

Pelosi has since canceled the trip. The NSC declined to comment when asked whether they told Pelosi to cancel.

John Kirby, NSC head of strategic communications, noted that NCS officials simply provided Pelosi with “context, facts and geopolitical relevant information,” and suggested that she made her own decision.

No America House Speakers have been to Taipei since 1997, when Republican Newt Gingrich visited the nation.

Of course the Biden family has long-time connections to the Eastern nation, going back to Joe’s days in the United States Senate. His degenerate son, Hunter Biden, has also taken up his father’s penchant for profiting off of shady international deals.
