"And China On Tuesday, House speaker Nancy Pelosi became the highest ranking American official to visit Taiwan in 25 years. We're going to have more on that in just a moment. Also ahead on the program. Stories from a special double issue of Bloomberg businessweek that document the war on women, playing out across the nation. It's one that's reached new heights with the Supreme Court's reversal of roe V wade earlier this year. First up, though, we spotlight the woman who made headlines all week. The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Bloomberg's creedy Gupta and I spoke with Bloomberg senior government reporter Ian marlowe about her East Asian trip and Wyatt put Beijing on edge. She's a particularly strong China hawk who has been defying China on a lot of these things on human rights on trade issues on other things for most of her career. I mean, if you look back to just after the Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989, her and a couple of other senators unfurled a little banner in Tiananmen Square commemorating those who died, something that seems unthinkable now. But shows you just how far she's willing to go in terms of sticking up for her values and other things. At the risk of at that point, personal safety, but also on this trip, geopolitical ramifications. I mean, she was willing to go through with this, we can talk about whether she was ever going to realistically be able to back down after the trip was announced, but she was willing to go through this even though there were obviously huge consequences. And I think a visit to Taiwan at any given point in time for China is very sensitive. They protest regularly when these types of delegations go. But it's just the senior Ness of her going is just a little bit too much for China to bear right now, especially given the sensitive domestic dynamics in China. Right. Well, I think what's so interesting about the timing here is it's happening at the same time as you have two massive bills, I believe, passed through Congress. You have a $52 billion chips act over 5 years, and then on top of that, you have this order from the commerce department, I believe, to for a lot of these names like Intel and Nvidia to actually not that dis them to increase their fab of production over in Taiwan and China. Yeah, it's not just about human rights. It's not just about ideology. It's about strategic economic competition between the two and she's being part of a very generally bipartisan push to sort of decouple from China and to push the U.S. sort of manufacturing industry, especially in high-tech towards a more competitive edge with China after a few decades where China really has benefited from relatively stable and friendly international economic order. If this really was a goal of the administration, why not put even more money towards it? You know, with any manufacturing countries want to bring it home, they want to bring it close to their other industrial base. But America is not the only place that is putting these types of bills in place dedicating billions of dollars to funding those types of companies. And I think the brute reality here is that this technology, this manufacturing capacity is not in America right now and it won't be for many years to come. And that's both structural and it's also a matter of policy with Americans sort of being late to this compared to whether it's places like Taiwan or South Korea or China itself. That was Bloomberg senior government reporter Ian marlowe, we turn now to our next guest, Mike Bloomberg quick take colleagues scarlet fu. She worked in Hong Kong for 8 years and has a personal connection to Taiwan. I used to visit Taiwan regularly. I would go every other summer because my grandparents lived there. My parents grew up in Taiwan. They were born in China, but they fled to Taiwan with the nationalist government, grew up in Taiwan, and we would go back and visit family regularly. So I really was able to see Taiwan evolve and develop from a society that lived under martial law to a society that was holding free elections. So what's so important about it? Why do we care about this particular location? In real estate, it's location location location. And that's kind of the case here because Taiwan is about a hundred miles off of China's southeastern coast. If you were to look at it on a map, it is the biggest land mass between Japan and the Philippines. So it's in this crucial position. And so the U.S. and every other country in the Asia Pacific region seized Taiwan as crucial to containing China and its military ambitions and economic ambitions. That's just strategically. Then you've got, of course, the economics. The world is completely dependent on Taiwan semiconductors. The island is responsible for about 92% of the world's most advanced chips. These are the chips that power your smartphone, your car, the AI in your smartphone, the AI in your car. So it makes the world go round right now. Talk to us a little bit about China's relationship with Taiwan. And where it stands right now. It's really, really complicated, is the short answer. It's really actually quite convoluted as well, because if you go back to recent history, Japan had to give up Taiwan to China after losing World War II, but there was a Civil War in China, so the nationalist government that was in China was defeated by the Communist Party. They fled the mainland and set up shop in Taiwan. They were supported by the U.S. government, which recognized the nationalist party as the rightful government, but temporarily displaced government of China. And then everything switched when the U.S. decided to change sides and recognize the communist government in Beijing instead. In doing so, it recognized that Beijing is the seat of government for China. There's only one China and it is the government in Beijing. China has a one China policy, the U.S. agrees with that. Taiwan is part of China, the U.S. agrees with that, but at the same time, it hasn't really clarified what it would do if China were to take Taiwan, taking Taiwan by force taking Taiwan by welcoming it back, not clear. There's a lot of intentional ambiguity when it comes to Taiwan and where it fits in with the one China policy when it comes to how the U.S. is going to act on anything. Our thanks to quick take Scarlett foo for her insight with tensions between the world's preeminent superpowers on the rise once again. Coming up next, Pelosi's visit to Taiwan is just one source of stress for China. Another is the multi-billion dollar banking scandal embroiling the country's rural

This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is the Mike Gallagher show. We are not ready for a war with China. Or even with the Taliban, we are not going to win the war against China. Despite all the truly woke stupid behaviors, we still have a powerful military President Biden underwater on the economy significantly so. Underwater on gas prices underwater on inflation, underwater on abortion underwater on crime. Now, from the relief factor dot com studios. Here's Mike Gallagher. What do you do when your political opponent does something that arguably will help the other side? How do you respond to it? I mean, first of all, we need transparency. We need clarity. And we need truth. And I'm willing to acknowledge that Pelosi's visit to Taiwan. Appears to try to make the United States look tough against China and this has got everybody all whopper jawed. Just reminds I love it when there are all these strange political bedfellows. It goes back to ilian Gonzalez in the Clinton administration. Remember the little boy in a little Havana in Miami? His mother drowned bringing him into the country and the father in Cuba wanted the little boy back and Janet Reno's Justice Department broke down the door and they swiped the kid from the arms of the relatives and delivered the boy back to communist Cuba. Remember that? And I remember at the time I was at a conference with a bunch of talk show hosts and all the big mouths on the radio gathered, which is rough. That's not a place I'm not real comfortable because I believe me, I'm mindful that I'm one of those big mouths and no one knew what position to take because it was, I mean, it was Clinton and we don't want to be pro Clinton, but on the other hand, family values, the kids being returned to daddy back in Cuba. Yeah, but it's communist Cuba. It's Phil de Fidel Castro. No one knew what to do. Well, the same thing's happening here. He got Tom Friedman from The New York Times lashing out at Pelosi. You've got Tucker Carlson from Fox News, condemning Pelosi. You've got, I guess, Pelosi supporters loving what she's doing. And you've got the Biden administration letting her go. I mean, I understand we've got separate branches of government. I guess you can go where she wants to go. On the other hand, if Joe Biden didn't want her to go, he'd put his foot down. So if you're just joining us and of course this is breaking news, House speaker Nancy Pelosi, and a Democrat congressional delegation boy love to see what those Lulu's look like. Funny to see them come off the plane. When that's going to be all about, they landed in Taiwan following through with the promised vision, arriving at around ten 45 p.m., local time. She's the highest ranking U.S. elected official to travel to the island nation since then House speaker Newt Gingrich in 1997..

"Hey, Ryan, the flight tracker was right. She has touched down. Now we got a party. Breaking now on the Mike Gallagher show, speaker Pelosi has officially arrived in Taiwan. She is in Taipei. She touched down moments ago and now she's going to face the pushback of a lot of people on the left, including New York Times columnist Tom Friedman more on that in just a moment. Nobody called to make the $1000 donation for food for the poor? Tracy reminded me she went to 8 different public supermarkets here in Florida to get a few copies of the New York Post for me to sign. She is so annoyed right now. She's yelling at me. She said, if we don't get some donations and I spent all that gas money, traipsing across Florida because there was one here, there was one two there, so please don't let Tracy down, I was all excited. I thought we were going to have a really big turnout and I'd be racking up some great lifesaving meals for needy, starving people in the world. I was because we did like, how many have we done so far? 7, 8? And then, you know, O 6. So 6 New York Post signed copies have gone out. And I am grateful for your generosity and incidentally on whatever size donation you can afford is going to make a big difference. But I was praying we could do maybe ten today. Heck, we can't even get one. People are calling about Pelosi, people are calling about a lot of other things, but not that. So if you change your mind and you want to help us get 4000 meals delivered through food for the poor and you can make a tax deductible donation, you could write it off. It's saving lives and you're going to make Tracy very happy. You're going to reward her for her hard work and she really did. She busted her tail going from public to public. And they think she's crazy. Asking for a New York Post in Tampa Bay. But there are more than a few New Yorkers here. So let's put a smile on Tracy's face and mine too if you like what we do in your support food for the poor and you are blessed and can make that $1000 donation, we will sign. Let's go Brandon, Mike Gallagher. I just signed one. You're watching. Dorota and Kevin, and it's going to be shipped out today. The definition of recession as Biden tries to spin his way out of the economic mess. That we are in. So the airplane delivering House speaker Nancy Pelosi has landed on the island of Taiwan. Listen to what Tom Friedman from The New York Times wrote today about Pelosi's visit. He calls it utterly reckless. Friedman wrote yesterday, I have a lot of respect for House speaker Nancy Pelosi, but if she does go ahead with the visit to Taiwan this week, against President Biden's wishes, she will be doing something that is utterly reckless, dangerous and irresponsible, nothing good will come of it. The liberal columnist for The New York Times wrote, Taiwan will not be more secure or more prosperous as a result of this purely symbolic visit and a lot of bad things could happen. These include a Chinese military response that could result in the U.S. being plunged into direct conflicts with a nuclear armed Russia and a nuclear armed China at the same time. I wonder how Tom Friedman feels about being on the same side with Tucker Carlson. Over an issue of international global ideology and politics. Now Pelosi is conducting an extensive tour of our multiple allied nations in Taiwan. The problem is, according to the Biden administration, Taiwan isn't one of them. Yesterday, spokesman John Kirby from the National Security Council told a reporter, we don't support Taiwan's independence. John Kirby cut four guys. She wants to say on this trip is really her prerogative. That's why it was so important for me in my opening comments, Kelly, to make clear what this administration's policy is with respect to the one China principle. When China policy, as well as not wanting to see cross street tensions resolved by any than other than peaceful means and the fact that we don't support Taiwan independence, it was important for me to lay that down right at the outset. That's our policy. That's this administration's approach. Our administration afloat not to let people be free. In a place like Taiwan. Wow. So here I sit in agreement with Tom Friedman of The New York Times and wondering why Pelosi had to go in the first place. Am I wrong?.

the things Tim we really love about quarterly updates is that we hear from top executives the C suite about the health of the economy and we get their respective outlooks Yeah we also got that this week Carol from the Bloomberg year ahead summit You actually caught up with chuck Robbins the chairman and CEO of Cisco to talk all about what to expect when it comes to the world of technology in 2022 It was a really fun conversation chuck is 7 years in as CEO of Cisco And in this excerpt he shares his thoughts on the economy the hybrid work model and of course the ongoing pandemic We went into 2021 with high expectations and unfortunately we came to realize to your point earlier when we were chatting when you think you were moving on we get surprised and realized how little is in our control at the end of the day but I think this year we're hopeful that omicron is the signal that we're getting close to the end and when you listen to the medical experts they at least insinuated that maybe the case obviously there's a risk of other variants but I think people are ready and I think they've been ready as we all are And as much as we love this technology and we're so proud of what it's been able to do to keep the world running and keep people productive I think people are dying to get back and spend time together and be in person What do you think in terms of the general macro outlook How does it feel You know what we've been talking about I'm sure you guys have too You have certainly on some of the earnings calls about supply chain problems and being able to access all the materials that you need How does it feel And does the economy feel like it'll be growing But maybe not as rapid as we'd like It's so hard to predict because I think if you go back to march of 2020 most all of us thought that as we went into a global pandemic that the economy would suffer And we saw just the opposite over the last two years And so there's a couple things I think that are going on Number one the year over year comparisons will just make it very difficult because 2021 was such a robust year And then I think the obviously the fed is going to move and begin to raise rates which will have some impact on the economy as well But I think that the investment cycle that companies are in the middle of and how they're thinking about technology investments and how they're thinking about their future It seems to be a pretty robust investment environment that we see in particular in our space We see some big long-term trends that we think will continue to be tailwinds We may see some ups and downs because of temporary macro issues but I think long term will be fine Cost pressures though inflation labor shortages that's still part of 2022 unfortunately Unfortunately that's true And as so many of us have said some of that stuff is going to be transient but a lot of it's not Wage inflation doesn't go back As a joke with our team I can't remember an employee when things get when inflation subsides they come and say you know I'd like to get part of my salary bank So whatever we're having to do on that front we'll stay with us forever But you know the good news is that what we've learned around hybrid work and what's possible where people can live it gives us the ability to tap into lots of different geographies and hire people where they are and actually get exposure to much greater chemicals Talk to about hybrid work You guys it's just that I've been doing it pre-pandemic and so have a lot of firms in the technology industry There is a huge debate out there still And you guys have certainly seen the benefits that have everybody needing to be connected I'm working at home again Does that continue Is that with us Is that one of those long-term trends They ain't going away It's not going away and I think we're going to a certain extent we're going from this great resignation to a great experiment So there's these variations of hybrid work that everybody's trying to embrace And we have two aspects Number one what do we do as an organization but also the technology that we build that are actually that's actually enabling our customers to deliver whatever version of hybrid work they would like to deliver on But to your point we had ten to 15% of our workforce that worked from home a 100% of the time before the pandemic And I think that the way we're approaching it is we're leaving it to the team So we're not having any sort of mandated return to office policy We will let the teams know when the officers are open so you can return to them But as an example if there's a team of 8 or ten engineers and they believe that being together in person two or three days a week is beneficial they'll make that decision and then they'll choose the days that they want to be in the office together And we think that's a better way than just a random hey we want everybody in the office two days It's just not all that logical to me but we'll see how it plays out And we'll see which of these models actually begins to emerge But we think it's we think the approach we're taking gives flexibility gives our employees flexibility many of them can live wherever they like Obviously there's some jobs that are going to be required to in a certain geography but we think it'll just continue to contribute to the culture that we try to build Yeah we're definitely seeing Americans and people all over the world kind of being able to move around I am also curious in terms of innovation This is one of.

But it's still not clear exactly when the Senate impeachment trial will start wt. Opie's Mitchell Miller is on Capitol Hill, House Speaker Pelosi will only say that an article of impeachment against the former president will be sent to the Senate soon, and she rejects Republicans suggestions that will only further divide the country. The president of the United States committed an act. Incitement of insurrection. I don't think it's very unifying to say Let's just forget it and move on. She also reiterated that any lawmakers found to have helped those who later attacked the capital on January, 6th could face prosecution. The House's top Republican Kevin McCarthy, says he's been consistent in condemning protesters involved in violence at the Capitol or anywhere else. Announcer that day. Denounce it Now.

"On that is it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Just the final vote on that resolution to impeach President Trump 232 yays 1 97. Maze 10 Republicans voting in favor of impeaching President Trump. So again, the U. S house, impeaching President Trump for his role in the capital riot, a second impeachment against this sitting and standing president. Let me go back to Kevin's Really, Kevin. I'm hoping we're fixing your audio, and you have Better clarity. But again here we are history being made here We are on an unprecedented moment as the Democratic led House of representatives has now voted For the second time to impeach President Donald Trump. The question now becomes whether or not the upper chamber will vote to convict and what precisely would a conviction look like it comes is some top Republicans have signaled that they are willing to convict that they are willing to move this process forward. It also comes as the division within the Republican Party has broken open as it's been on the front pages as it's been on on social media and very much on the floor. The United States House of Representatives. I was struck by comments earlier today by Congressman Matt Gates, a Republican ultra conservative from Florida who doubled down triple down. On President Trump and in his support for President Trump, and there were audible boos from some of his colleagues on the House floor. I say this because it's an illustration really that Is playing out and families across the country but also at what really feels arguably. And I don't think I'm speaking from cliche here when I say the most polarized time in American politics, Carol no, Listen. One of the stories that has just stayed with me was yesterday. The story. By, um, one of our colleagues here that talked about a DC rioter who says he has no regrets? Went to D. C did not. Understand any kind of plans to breach the capital but ultimately got in there on you Hear his, you know, kind of personal private story. Living in a bus doesn't have a job kind of in a tough way, but also talking about how his politics has presented prevented him from really being around his family. So we do see it. As you say so rightfully say, Kevin. This division is political division. Playing out in all many of our families on it's obviously playing out there on the floors of Congress, and I would even take it. You know a brilliant analysis right there, Carol. I would even take it here in Washington, D C to use the example of a lawmaker and I understand how difficult it is in these times to see past political ideology, but the best characterization that I can offer From my decade or so in covering Washington, D. C is the notion that a lawmaker is essentially a CEO, a small business or a big business leader. And for these lawmakers there often times surrounded by senior staffers in their local constituents office and in their Washington, D. C office. There are two branches of divisions typically For a lawmaker that constituents office for ultra conservative members are a clashing. Clashing is an understatement with the Washington D C. Chiefs of Staff. And I can't stress this enough. You have Republican members right now, many of whom do not have a message. Do not know who to rely on for a message. And I am I understand that if you're hearing this, it might be well their leader, their elected, But this is the politics business of Washington, D. C as it is currently structured. No one is telling these folks who specifically what Specifically they should be saying on. That's what even makes this. Unlike any other story we've covered well, what's interesting, too, so 10 Republicans voting in favor of impeachment in the House? No House Republicans Voted in favor of either of the two articles of impeachment during Trump's first round again, we've said very different procedures, and I think thinking about it, but I do wonder whether that can be, you know, kind of foreshadowing of what we might see in the Senate. I want to jump the gun here, but I do wonder, you know, Kevin in terms of the psyche right now of Congress overall, but Republicans specifically about their president. You know, I go back Teofilo Ord Administration and the pardoning of President Richard Nixon, Right? And that's really the only compass of Ah parallel in history that we have, because we are in totally uncharted historical context. But Ford told Bob Woodward years after Andre why he did this, and he said, because he thought again no opinion here he thought. That it was what was best for the country in order to heal. So the question in the longer term Is. How does America move forward? How does politics move forward? Is it through a trial? Is it through investigations is it through and we're gonna I'm gonna talkto lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman on the next hour. Is it through lawsuits at the state level against people like former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for perpetuating a lie with regards to the conspiracy theories? I don't know, but know who else doesn't know the sources that were talking to Carol. It's a great great question. Absolutely. Hey, let's remind everybody you're talking with Kevin. So really Bloomberg News chief Carr Washington correspondent Bluebird Radio TV host of Bloomberg Sound on Bloomberg Radio.
