Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says he hopes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “sticks to her guns” and moves forward with her planned trip to Taiwan, adding that he would like to see her take a bipartisan delegation of lawmakers with her.
“I feel very strongly that Speaker Pelosi should go to Taiwan and that she should take a bipartisan congressional delegation,” Gingrich said during a speech at the America First Policy Institute’s America First Agenda Summit on Monday.
“I can say this with some authority. I am the highest ranking American official ever to visit Taiwan. In 1997, I led a delegation, and John Dingell, the senior Democrat, was on the delegation. It was a truly bipartisan group.”
