Nancy Pelosi finds herself the topic in many circles following what many have called an ill-advised visit to Taiwan on Tuesday.
As could be expected, President Donald Trump gave his take on Pelosi’s decision.
On his Truth Social platform, Trump had this to say about Pelosi:
“Why is Crazy Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan. Always causing trouble,” Trump wrote. “Nothing she does turns out well (Two failed Impeachments, loss of House, etc.). WATCH!”
Despite several threats and warnings from China, Pelosi made the trip.
While several politicians and media members have been critical of Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and 25 other republicans supported her trip.

Newsmax shared President Trump’s thoughts on Pelosi:
While establishment Republicans have come out Tuesday to support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat delegation to Taiwan, former President Donald Trump is warning it is unnecessarily asking for “trouble.”
“Why is Crazy Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan,” Trump posted to Truth Social. “Always causing trouble. Nothing she does turns out well (two failed impeachments, loss of House, etc.). WATCH!”
Amid Pelosi’s trip, China is conducting military exercises around Taiwan in a sign of potential escalation of tensions.

Here’s more from our friends at the New York Post:
Breaking from dozens of his fellow Republicans, former President Donald Trump criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Tuesday for her decision to visit Taiwan as China threatened a military response.
“Why is Crazy Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform.
“Always causing trouble. Nothing she does turns out well (Two failed Impeachments, loss of House, etc.). WATCH!” he added.
Pelosi and five other Democratic members of Congress landed in Taipei on Tuesday evening local time, making her the highest-ranking US elected official to travel to Taiwan since then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich did the same in 1997.
Pelosi’s office had previously announced that she would visit Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan, but avoided mentioning Taiwan until after the speaker was on the ground.
Trump, like many others, questioned Pelosi’s decision from the beginning.
He warned that she would “only make it worse” by going to Taiwan.

Others have questioned the House speaker’s decision to go to Taiwan as well.
Good morning to everyone except the people who say Trump had "dangerous" foreign policy and are now silent as Pelosi takes a needless trip to Taiwan that China threatened war over.

Democrats and Nancy Pelosi are willing to risk starting WWIII for personal profit… but tell me again how you think Trump was reckless with foreign policy.

Pelosi isn't going to Taiwan because she loves freedom.
Pelosi is in Taiwan because her time as Speaker is almost up and she's desperate for attention.

I can’t stop thinking about Nancy Pelosi risking a World War by visiting Taiwan yet exiting the plane wearing a mask, which doesn’t work at all, to “protect” her from a virus she’s already had despite getting four shots. Perfect synopsis of our insanely stupid leaders.

Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan is expected to cost tax payers over $90 million for security, allocation of US military presence, and more.
All this for her to get a private tour of the Nvidia chip factory after she purchased millions in shares using insider info.
