Former President Donald Trump stated on Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, should not be taking a trip to Taiwan while visiting Asia this week.
According to Newsmax, Pelosi is heading up a delegation on a trip to Asia on Friday, which includes a stop in Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea.
Pelosi would not say whether or not the delegation would be stopping in Taiwan in remarks she gave to the press, going on to say, “I never talk about my travel. It’s a danger to me.”
Trump responded to this on Truth Social by saying, “Why is Nancy Pelosi getting involved with China and Taiwan other than to make trouble and more money, possibly involving insider trading and information, for her cheatin’ husband? Everything she touches turns to Chaos, Disruption, and ‘Crap’ (her second big Congress ‘flop’ happening now!), and the China mess is the last thing she should be involved in – She will only make it worse. Crazy Nancy just inserts herself and causes great friction and hatred. She is such a mess!!!”
Other members of the GOP, including the chair of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus, Rep. Steve Chabot of Ohio, actually heaped some praise on Pelosi for the idea of traveling to the country.

“I hope she stands up to the pressure that she’s going to get, and is already getting, from President Biden and the administration. I think it’s important that we show solidarity with our ally Taiwan,” Chabot went on to say concerning the trip. “So I commend her for making the decision to go. I hope she sticks to her guns.”
