Meet Nancy Pelosi and why she creates tension between Taiwan and China

In the last hours, the tension between Taiwan, China and managed to position itself as the media theme of the moment, even making it become a trend in social networks and the internet in particular. And it is that the first woman to preside over thetook on greater international importance due to events that were related to this alleged conflict.

Let us remember that Pelosi is on a tour of Asia as part of the delegations that she has been developing in the Biden administration, even her imminent landing on the Taiwanese island was not to the liking of the Chinese government, thus generating a wave of rumors around a new conflict between Americans and Asians.

As if that were not enough, the deputy further aggravated things between the United States and the Biden government, especially, for his direct speech when setting foot on the island that belonged to China until mid-1912.

“Our visit honors America’s unwavering commitment to Taiwan’s democracy. Reaffirm our support for our partner and promote our shared interestsincluding that of a free and open Indo-Pacific region”, exclaimed the 82-year-old politician once her private charter landed.

But, who precisely is Nancy Pelosi and why has she become more relevant in these last few hours? Let’s take a look at her vast political career.

NANCY PELOSI AND HER IMPORTANCE IN THE UNITED STATES

Although she has gone unnoticed due to Biden’s prominence in recent months, Nancy Pelosi is not a ‘rookie’ in modern American politics, since she is only behind Vice President Kamala Harris, thus evidencing her behind-the-scenes importance within the ‘White House’ when undertaking a trip like the one he made to Asian lands.

However, it was the advisors of the President of the United States who were not entirely satisfied with the usefulness of the trip, or at least that is what presidential spokesman John Kirby himself commented.

It is worth mentioning that their votes in the plenary have succeeded in marking the course of the United States, as happened in 1991 when they voted against the use of violence against Iraq. Act that would repeat in 2002, when then President George Bush launched the intervention in the country after the disastrous attacks of 11-S.

After these participations in the American political field, Pelusi managed to gain relevance by being elected as leader of the Democratic minority in Congress, four years later being elected as president of the same political jurisdiction, a position she managed to hold until 2011.

But not only does he stand out for his active political participation in the Legislative, since in April 2007 he also headed the delegation of deputies for the Middle East when making trips to Syria, Lebanon or Israel. Something that he repeated in 2009 through a visit to Afghanistan to see the faces with the then president Hamid Karzai.

HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH DONALD TRUMP

In the local aspect, he is not far behind either, because in 2018 he achieved important participations again as leader of the Democratic minority, delivering the longest speech ever made in the House, with an uninterrupted eight-hour address.

In fact, comings and goings for long months, since the leader of the plenary session starred in a controversial clash with Donald Trump himself, who even canceled his speech on the State of the Union.

In mid-2021, she is reelected as president of the House of Representatives for the posthumous months to achieve functions of greater international interference throughout the world. After the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Pelusi again led a visit to Kiek and Warsaw and set up a meeting with Volodymyr Zelensky.

In 2021 she is re-elected as president of the House of Representatives to provide more services internationally in the following months. In fact, after the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, she leads a delegation to visit kyiv and Warsaw and meet with Volodymyr Zelensky.

WHY DID PELOSI’S TRIP GENERATE TENSION BETWEEN CHINA AND TAIWAN?

A few hours ago, the deputy made another trip with such international characteristics, although this time the topic of debate has nothing to do with Putin or Ukrainian sovereignty, but rather with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

It seems that the tension will continue for a couple more days, since, as we know, the Chinese government considered such a trip as a political provocation by the United States.

In this line, different spokesmen from the ‘White House’ begin to take all the possible answers and allegations in case of alleged conflicts with the Asian giant.
