Rick Scott re-ups support for Nancy Pelosi Taiwan trip

U.S. Sen. Rick Scott reaffirmed his support for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s planned foreign trip to Taiwan, in what seems to be an evolving Republican position.

Pelosi’s Taiwan trip, slated for August, defies the communist Chinese government in Beijing, which says such a trip would adversely impact relations between China and the United States. But Scott, appearing on Tuesday’s “Faulkner Focus” on the Fox News Channel, again offered total support for the plans of the Democratic House Speaker to flout Beijing’s will and make the trip next month.

“I was just over there and I think Nancy Pelosi should go over there,” Scott said.
