Source: The Hill

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has extended an invitation to members of Congress to join her on a planned trip to Taiwan, according to a House aide. Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, was invited to join the Speaker to visit Taipei but is unable to attend because of a previous commitment, his spokesperson Leslie Shedd confirmed to The Hill. … Pelosi’s office has not officially confirmed she is traveling to Taiwan, though President Biden spoke about the reported trip recently. The Chinese Foreign Ministry has also [whined about] the potential travel, saying such a visit from the Speaker would ‘challenge China’s red line, it will be met with resolute countermeasures.'” (07/27/22)
