Sen. Coons: ‘It Risks Escalating Tensions with China’ if Pelosi Visits Taiwan

‘Speaker over and over has highlighted human rights abuses in China’

EXCERPT:

GEIST: "But in your judgment, senator, better for the speaker to hold off, at least for now, on that visit to Taiwan?"
COONS: "You know, I think she needs to weigh the input that she gets from the administration, from the president, from our intelligence community. I do think it risks escalating tensions with China, but I also respect the ways that the speaker over and over has highlighted human rights abuses within China and has stood up for the rights of people in the Indo-Pacific region broadly."
