Nancy Pelosi is in Taiwan on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party to either cut some kind of deal or to deliver an ultimatum.
Either way, it will be an agreement she personally and politically benefits from.
Her actions are highly suspect, seeing how nephew Gavin Newsom is being positioned as the 2024 Democratic Party Anointed.

Yes, Pelosi should have made the decision to visit Taiwan, but this visit should have been more of a joint effort with our State Department diplomats. Egomaniac Nancy Pelosi loves to be in the spotlight and have all the media attention focused solely on her. American diplomats have been visiting Taiwan for years, and our government must NEVER be ordered around by the Chinese Communist Party.
We are in this mess with the CCP and Taiwan because there are catastrophic nationwide AND worldwide consequences - when a corrupt political party, the Democrats, cheated massively to win the 2020 Presidential election. Americans and the whole world are suffering because of this.
America would NEVER be in this awful situation with Russia OR the Chinese Communist Party if Trump was still our President. The CCP is not stupid. They know America now has a weak and thoroughly incompetent President with Joe Biden. I fear they will move on Taiwan and take over that independent country soon, before Trump or another Republican President wins in 2024.

Not only should she not have visited Taiwan, she should not have flown in a USA airplane with her entourage of followers! Charging her Asia tour to the USA is an abuse of use of resources.

If her decision to visit Taiwan was made prior to China issuing threats, of course she should have gone if for no other reason that China should not be in a position to dictate to the US.
Otherwise, I'm not knowledgeable about her purpose for going, so won't comment on that.

It was unnecessarily provocative and exposed America's weakness.

She should not only not have visited Taiwan, but she should not have travelled in a US jet with her retinue of supporters! Charging her Asia trip to the United States is a waste of resources.
