Conservative radio talk show legend and #1 in exclusive interview with Breitbart News New York Times Best-selling author Michael Savage has sharply criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for a recent visit to Taiwan, saying the move has dangerously escalated tensions in Asia and around the world.
Josh Kaplan: Pelosi’s recent visit to Taiwan was a historic demonstration of America’s solidarity with the island nation. There, the Speaker met with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen.travel painted Bipartisan support in Washington. The move angered China. The Communist government has repeatedly condemned and issued a series of threats.In addition, Beijing flew planes and fired missiles near Taiwan describe According to Reuters, it was its “largest exercise in the Taiwan Strait.” What do you think of Pelosi’s visit?
Michael Savage: It’s common sense to ask a question: do we need this confrontation now? A: Of course not. Who wins? Arms hall and military-industrial complex. We know the missiles are flying now and a sea blockade is coming. Besides grandstanding, being a provocateur and causing chaos again, what has Pelosi accomplished? She is a disruptor of domestic and international peace. She poses a threat to world stability. It’s totally unnecessary now.I be interviewed Pelosi was the congresswoman here in 1998 because I lived in the Bay Area for a long time. Back in 1998, she was on the right side as a supporter of Taiwan. She appeared on my show and talked about human rights abuses in China. This is actually a good interview. This provocation at this time is unnecessary. She could have gone there quietly and told Taiwan we were on their side, but she didn’t. She has arrogance. Let’s hope she doesn’t fly too close to the sun this time around.
Josh Kaplan: If you have to take out your crystal ball, what will the future of US-China relations and Taiwan’s security look like after Pelosi’s visit to China?
Michael Savage: CCP [Chinese Communist Party] Fighting the protracted war, they are doing nothing now. Sure, they’ll beat the drums of war, but probably not much right now. However, [Chinese dictator] Xi Jinping has put his prestige in jeopardy, and he is being challenged. He will not embarrass himself. He’ll do something, but it won’t happen right away. They’ll wait for the time they see fit and then do something completely unexpected. Anyone can guess what it will be. If I had to get out my crystal ball, maybe they would take a disputed island in and around the Taiwan Strait. They will not invade Taiwan now. They don’t need to do this because, in essence, they can wait for it to end. They will wait and see what happens in the US midterm elections. If the Republican Party wins as much as we want, and China fears that there will be a strong Republican president after anyone replaces Biden, I think we can safely assume that China will take action against Taiwan. But not now.
