EXCLUSIVE: Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley is hitting back at China’s “temper tantrum,” saying Beijing will not dictate United States foreign policy, as the country threatened retaliation for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan.
“As China ups its aggression, America needs to show that we won’t let Beijing’s temper tantrum dictate our foreign policy,” Haley told Fox News Digital in an exclusive statement as Pelosi’s plane touched down in Taiwan Tuesday morning.
“The Taiwanese are free people who must not be trampled by the Chinese communists,” Haley continued.
Pelosi, who is conducting an extensive tour of multiple allied nations in Asia, has finally touched down in Taiwan despite repeated threats to the speaker’s safety. Her plane landed in Taiwan at approximately 10:45 am ET.
