Pelosi arrived in Taiwan on Tuesday despite warnings from both the Biden administration and China not to visit, Breitbart News reported.
It was the first visit to Taiwan by a U.S. official of her rank in 25 years, and the outlet continued:
The Biden administration has opposed her visit for fear of further destabilizing Sino-U.S. relations at a time when the U.S. is suffering from high commodity prices, supply chain disruptions and a push for a green energy agenda, all of which the administration hopes will follow the midterm elections. Near, it can cooperate with China.
Pelosi originally planned to visit in April but delayed it after contracting the Chinese coronavirus — an illness the Taiwanese government tried to notify the World Health Organization (WHO) in December 2019, but was ignored.
The trip sparked outrage in Beijing and warnings of consequences. Hu Xijin, a Chinese propagandist, threatened to shoot down her plane in a tweet, which Hu Xijin later deleted after Twitter locked his account.
In addition, Republicans encouraged her to travel, “not to back down to Biden and not to let Beijing veto the travel of U.S. officials,” the outlet said.
