House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) faced backlash online Tuesday after she said during an NBC News interview that communist China was “one of the freest societies in the world.”

Pelosi’s remarks come after she visited Taiwan last week, which triggered days of intense Chinese military drills that encircled the island.

“We still support the One China policy. We go there to acknowledge the status quo is what our policy is. There was nothing disruptive about that,” Pelosi said. “It was only about saying China is one of the freest societies in the world.”

Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Rebeccah Heinrichs responded, “Very embarrassing. She had to have meant Taiwan— all the difference in the world.”

“China is currently locking religious minorities in mass internment camps and committing genocide against them,” Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) responded. “But Speaker Pelosi believes they are one of the freest societies in the world? This is #CCP propaganda.”

Former Trump White House adviser Steven Cheung responded, “Disturbing to see anyone, let alone an elected official, repeat Chinese Communist Party talking points. It’s almost like she is compromised.”

Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, responded to the clip by saying that she misspoke and she meant to say, “Taiwan.”

“The Speaker is referencing Taiwan,” he wrote on Twitter. “The Speaker’s record of speaking out against the Chinese Communist Party for 35 years in the Congress is unsurpassed.”... (Read more)
