Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan this week, an island 100 miles south-east of China, and met its president Tsai Ing-wen.
Her visit raised tensions between the United States and China as the latter claims Taiwan is part of its territory. As reported by Reuters, Nancy Pelosi said her visit shows “America’s unwavering commitment to supporting Taiwan’s vibrant Democracy.”
It is the first time a senior US official has visited the Chinese-claimed self-ruled country in 25 years, but China isn’t happy about it.
In fact, China president Xi Jinping actually warned Pelosi not to visit and said there would be “serious consequences” if she did, leaving internet users fearing something bad could happen.
The 82-year-old has now left Taiwan and is on her way back to the US, but memes continue to flood Twitter as people wonder what could have happened.
