The Faulkner Focus was joined by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to talk about Nancy Pelosi’s travel to Taiwan and the Democrats’ funding measure.
NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! In response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, which China severely denounced, China has issued penalties against her and her family.
The penalties were revealed by a representative of China’s Foreign Ministry on Friday, who described Pelosis’ journey to Taiwan as a “egregious provocation” and “gross interference” in the nation’s internal affairs.
“Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi insisted on traveling to China’s Taiwan territory in spite of Beijing’s serious objections and strong worries. This amounts to blatant meddling in China’s domestic affairs “added the spokeswoman. “It substantially violates the one-China principle, seriously undercuts China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and seriously threatens peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.”

Pelosi arrived in Tokyo on Thursday after flying from Taiwan, where she made it clear that her trip there was not meant to upset the “status quo.”
“Changing the status quo in Asia or in Taiwan is not the goal of our presence here. It concerns once more U.S.-China policy and Taiwan ties, as well as all the laws and accords that have shaped our relationship. It also concerns maintaining the status quo and achieving peace in the Taiwan Straits “At a press conference held at the American Embassy in Tokyo, she added.

Pelosi also asserted during the news conference that Taiwan will not be cut off from the rest of the world by China.
Pelosi added, “They may try to restrict Taiwan from traveling to or taking part in other locations, but they will not isolate Taiwan by forbidding Americans from traveling there. She continued, “We won’t let them isolate Taiwan.
