Mike Gallagher, the chairman of the House Committee on China, is warning that Chinese President Xi Jinping may seriously consider a potential invasion of Taiwan in January 2024.
Gallagher has recently visited Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen in California, where they discussed ways in which Taiwan plans to resist any efforts by Beijing to interfere in their election. The issue of Taiwan has been a concern for some time, with lawmakers warning that it’s only a matter of time before China tries to invade Taiwan.
Gallagher is worried that the Biden administration does not view Xi’s ambitions for Taiwan as an imminent threat and feels it is unlikely he will make a move for Taiwan in the coming years. He warns that the United States needs to move quickly to prevent an invasion of Taiwan.
The potential invasion of Taiwan is a concerning issue that requires immediate attention from the United States. It is crucial for the Biden administration to view Xi’s ambitions for Taiwan as an imminent threat and take appropriate action to prevent an invasion.
