Sen. Blackburn: China should never dictate US foreign policy

During a recent interview, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) expressed she believes Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made the right call in going to Taiwan because the US should never allow China to dictate the nations foreign policy. She continued her thought by stating that conceding to China’s bidding would only fortify their goal to be recognized as the world’s superpower. Blackburn argued that for years members of the Senate and House have always made diplomatic visits to Taiwan and China should not have to change that.
