Trump spy chief says Biden 'mismanaged' Pelosi's Asia trip

  Trump spy chief says Biden 'mismanaged' Pelosi's Asia trip Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe criticized the Biden administration for its handling of speculation that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will visit Taiwan despite warnings by China. The Trump-era spy chief argued Chinese President Xi Jinping is capitalizing on President Joe Biden's "weakness" as Beijing and its mouthpieces in the media threatened severe consequences if Pelosi ends up visiting Taiwan, which China claims as its territory."It's been mismanaged.

Nancy Pelosi plays a double game? A week after his visit to Taiwan, and while the tensions caused by this trip are still lively, the president of the House of Representatives declared in an interview on American television that "China is one of the most companies free from the world. It does not come from me, but from [the NGO] Freedom House ". And the political leader to praise this "strong democracy" and this "courageous people" .

Many Internet users have isolated the extract to be surprised by this position. Some even seeing "the temptation of the Western elites to submit peoples to the Chinese regime" .

Nancy Pelosi Is Creating a Global Military Crisis for No Reason at All

  Nancy Pelosi Is Creating a Global Military Crisis for No Reason at All She’s going to Taiwan as a semi-rogue actor. At best, her trip will accomplish nothing. At worst …There is nothing immediately tangible that Pelosi can accomplish by going to Taiwan, which China has threatened with invasion for some time. It’s unclear how Pelosi’s unsanctioned visit will make a Chinese invasion any less likely. The speaker may inadvertently inflame tensions between China and Taiwan if she visits, putting Taiwanese citizens in danger. Though Pelosi belongs to a branch independent of the president, she will be viewed by the Chinese as an American official driving a confrontation.

It is enough to listen to the interview length to understand that Nancy Pelosi is directly referring to Taiwan in his remarks. She explains that the goal of her trip was not "Changing the position of the United States" vis-à-vis Taiwan and the status quo . It was in this course that she explains that her visit to the island was so so to salute her democratic and free society.

Pelosi's Taiwan trip exacerbates Biden's China headaches and leadership questions

  Pelosi's Taiwan trip exacerbates Biden's China headaches and leadership questions House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) expected trip to Taiwan is creating political and foreign policy problems for President Joe Biden as China responds to her travel plans with a rhetorical firestorm. The White House has tried to water down China's fire and fury, including threats to shoot down Pelosi's escort fighter jets. But after Biden shared that "the military" had concerns regarding the prospective stop on Pelosi's Asia tour, the speaker's apparent decision to proceed with the visit not only muddles Biden's "One China" message but also undermines his authority as commander in chief.

In fact, Taiwan is in good place in the ranking made by the 'NGO Freedom House on individual freedoms in the world: with a score of 94 out of 100, the island is largely positioned in front of France or the United States.


Note that it is not in itself incorrect to speak of China to evoke the state of Taiwan: it is officially called the Republic of China (ROC), where the official name of China Continental is the People's Republic of China (RPC).

Undoubtedly to lift any ambiguity on his remarks, the official transcription of the interview published on the site of the Presidency of the House of Representatives replaced the word "China" by the mention "Taiwan" (in hooks , to signify the modification).
