Watch Live: Speaker Pelosi expected to arrive in Taiwan | USA TODAY

by News Update

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will arrive in Taiwan today, according to news media reports, defying threats of Chinese retaliation to make the highest-level U.S. visit in 25 years.

CNN and The Wall Street Journal reported that Pelosi will go ahead with the controversial trip. Pelosi’s office declined to comment on the reports Monday.

China views Taiwan as part of its territory, though Taiwan sees itself as a sovereign country. The United States has long embraced a murky middle ground that seeks to support Taiwan without infuriating Beijing.

President Joe Biden said the United States would come to Taiwan’s defense militarily if China invaded to take over the self-ruled island.

China warned of unspecified “consequences” for visiting Taiwan as tensions escalate between Beijing and Washington.

China must stop violating Taiwan's🇹🇼 sovereignty in the air and Taiwan Strait, or interfering into Taiwan's internal affairs,
– or face severe punishment from the Taiwan Defense Force.

My condolences to all Chinese 🇨🇳 who lost their freedom of speech and independent brain, and now become
victims of lies of the century:
– It's inevitable that China will "rule the world" and USA is a "declining power,"
– Taiwan 🇹🇼 is a "province" of China,
– South China Sea belongs to China "since ancient times",
– Wuhan virus was originated in "Fort Detrick, USA,"
– Uyghurs are herded in concentration camps "to curb terrorism."
