Nancy Pelosi confirmed to visit four Asian countries, but no mention of Taiwan


U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed a trip to four Asian countries, though no mention of a potential visit to Taiwan. In a call last week, Chinese President Xi Jinping warned President Biden about the U.S. entering the contested territory. A source close to Pelosi reviewed her itinerary and informed NBC News the stop is still considered tentative. If she does visit, she will be the highest-ranking American official to visit the state since former Speaker Newt Gingrich in 1997.
