    After Communist China warned against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, saying such a visit would have a "a severe impact on the political foundation of China-U.S. relations," Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), a trenchant critic of China, fired back.

    "The Chinese Communist Party can go straight to hell," Crenshaw snapped. "You don't tell us when our elected representatives can visit other countries, as they always have, since our nation's inception. No amount of toddler-esque saber rattling will change that."

    Only minutes after Pelosi's arrival, Beijing announced plans for live-fire military exercises in areas around the island of Taiwan. Prior to Pelosi's arrival in Taiwan, Chinese warplanes buzzed the area on the border of the Taiwan Strait.

    China's foreign ministry had acknowledged it issued a protest to the United States, threatening that a visit "seriously infringes upon China's sovereignty and territorial integrity."

    China's defense ministry said it would launch "targeted military operations," France 24 reported on Tuesday, adding, "The Chinese military announced joint air and sea drills near Taiwan starting on Tuesday night and test launch of conventional missiles in the sea east of Taiwan, with Chinese state news agency Xinhua describing live-fire drills and other exercises around Taiwan from Thursday to Sunday."

    Last Thursday, according to the Chinese Embassy in Washington, Chinese leader Xi Jinping threatened the U.S. in a conversation with President Joe Biden about America's ties to Taiwan. "Those who play with fire will perish by it. It is hoped that the U.S. will be clear-eyed about this," the Chinese statement said Xi warned.

    In May 2020, a report appeared in a Communist Chinese state media outlet asserting that Communist China was targeting various GOP politicians, including Crenshaw, who had harshly criticized the Chinese regime for its actions regarding the coronavirus. Crenshaw issued a defiant tweet in response, snapping, "So apparently I'm on the Chinese government's radar now. Good. Bring it."

    In April 2020, at the beginning of the COVID pandemic, Crenshaw minced no words, stating of China, "They allowed this virus to spread. They knew it would spread; they spread false talking points like it won't spread from human to human contact. They didn't let scientists in to investigate. They actually disappeared doctors who tried to blow the whistle. The number of deaths and infections they hid."
