Fox News aired multiple programs with conflicting views about Nancy Pelosi visiting Taiwan with some hosts criticizing her trip while others praised it.
On Monday, Tucker Carlson criticized Pelosi's trip saying the US is "on the brink of yet another global war, potentially a nuclear war, because Nancy Pelosi has been given the green light by the White House to fly to Taiwan."
But on The Faulkner Focus, retired General Keith Kellogg called the move "very smart" and encourage Pelosi to take the trip so the US can stand up to China.
Jesse Watters echoed some of Carlson's concerns, adding that Pelosi's trip was a 'distraction' from her husband, Paul Pelosi's, DUI hearing this week.
\u201cSo if Pelosi goes to Taiwan, she\u2019s non-diplomatic and antagonist. If she doesn\u2019t go, she\u2019s weak. If she thinks about going but doesn\u2019t go, then she\u2019s a typical woman. If she thinks about going and then decides to go, she\u2019s a bitch.\n\nThank you @FoxNews.\u201d
The trip is part of Pelosi's tour of Asian countries. However since China claims Taiwan is a territory but Taiwan says it's an independent self-governing island, it was unclear if Pelosi would stop there.
The US has notably taken a vague approach when it comes to Taiwan. Although President Joe Biden has notably ramped-up support of Taiwan saying the US would help defend it should a military struggle occur between Taiwan and China.
After Pelosi announced her intent to stop in Taiwan, China warned the US that it would lead to potential military consequences. But when her plane landed on Tuesday morning, it was clear she would be standing her ground.
