MINOT, N.D. — I’m a conservative, so here are some words I never thought I’d write: Thank you, Nancy Pelosi.
As I write this, the speaker of the House has just landed in Taiwan, despite saber-rattling from China who tried to bully the Califonia Democrat, the woman who is third in line for the presidency, away from making the visit.
Though, according to the Chinese, it’s we who are the bullies.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the Associated Press that America’s supposed betrayal of China “on the Taiwan issue is bankrupting its national credibility.”
“Some American politicians are playing with fire on the issue of Taiwan,” he said. “This will definitely not have a good outcome … the exposure of America’s bullying face again shows it as the world’s biggest saboteur of peace.”
