RED ALERT: Chinese Media Spox Says Nancy Better ‘Pray Before Departure’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is going to Taiwan —and the Chinese media is furious.

News of Nancy’s Taiwan trip made the rounds Monday morning, prompting Chinese-affiliated media personalities to further condemn the Speaker’s trip, issuing a whole new wave of threats.

“Let her go to Taiwan. But pray before departure: wish herself a safe journey and wish herself not be defined by history as a sinner who starts a spiral of escalation process expanding military frictions to a large-scale war in the Taiwan Strait,” the former Global Times chief editor said.

From Fox News:

Hu Xijin previously suggested that China shoot down Pelosi’s plane if she goes to Taiwan.

Prior to Pelosi’s departure for Asia, the Pentagon moved the USS Ronald Reagan and a strike group from Singapore to the South China Sea, although the aircraft carrier had been there prior to its short stay in Singapore.

Pelosi is traveling with a House delegation that includes Democratic Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York, Mark Takano of California, Suzan DelBene of Washington, Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois and Andy Kim of New Jersey.
