Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan had a “cynical purpose,” according to a China expert.


On “Life, Liberty, and Levin,” senior fellow Michael Pillsbury of the Hudson Institute discusses Congress’ priorities and why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan.

NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! On “Life, Liberty, and Levin,” Michael Pillsbury, director of Chinese strategy at the Hudson Institute, disclosed the “cynical motivation” for Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan.

He admitted to presenter Mark Levin that “Republicans have been capturing the national attitude on China as a threat.” “According to polls, 70% to 80% of the population has that opinion. Democrats were also in a bad situation. They appeared to be aiding China and making excuses on its behalf. Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo were leaders “who” addressed China. I believe Nancy Pelosi and her staff are aware of this.”

“We Democrats are strong on China, too,” he added, referencing Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.
If she rejects all Republican approaches to China, her trip will be “hypocritical” and won’t have stopped the “100-year marathon,” Pillsbury said.

He said that Pelosi is a “dear friend” of the Dalai Lama and helped him receive the Congressional Gold Medal. To her credit, Pelosi was a human rights crusader against China beginning in the 1990s, almost being detained at Tiananmen Square in 1991.

Congress, possibly like Pelosi, appears to be uninterested in China, according to Levin. Pillbury concurred.

According to Pillsbury, “China seems to be something that can be dealt with vocally by condemning China, but actually shutting off foreign direct American investment in China that’s a huge one.” “arresting those who practice economic espionage in the real world Not just having the cases that Director Wray of the FBI claims he has thousands of, but also making actual arrests and bringing charges.”

The senior fellow at the Hudson Institute also suggested that universities avoid carrying out advanced technology research contracts for China.
He said the Chinese must be held accountable and that the United States is not acting against them.
