In anticipation of her arrival, China’s state media released a threatening response saying it would be “a gross interference in China’s internal affairs” and lead to “very serious developments and consequences” if she visited Taiwan.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian warned the US that China is on “standby” and will not sit idly by. He added that the CCP will take resolute responses and strong countermeasures to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
“if she dares to go, then let us wait and see.”
Why Does China Want Taiwan?
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) does not recognize Taiwan as an independent country. It considers it to be a break-away providence.
President Xi Jinping says this “reunification” must be fulfilled, even if it has to be taken by force.
But the US considers Taiwan an independent country with democratically elected leaders and its own constitution. Joe Biden has said military action would be used, if necessary, to defend Taiwan.
White House officials have stated that the US has a long-standing “strategic ambiguity” policy on whether it would get involved if China attacked Taiwan.
In other words, The US would provide Taiwan with the means to protect itself militarily.
“Everything she touches turns to Chaos, Disruption, and ‘Crap.'”

White House National Security Spokesman John Kirby told reporters in Washington that it won’t take the bait and that the US will not be intimidated.
Pelosi will be the first high-ranking American lawmaker to visit Tawain since former speaker Newt Gingrich almost 25 years ago.
