Steel holds true to campaign promise of standing of to CCP and protecting democracies around the world
Garden Grove, CA – Last week, Congresswoman Michelle Steel met with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen to continue to show America’s commitment to supporting Taiwan’s free and sovereign democracy. In the first 3 months after her reelection, Steel has led the way to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable and protect our allies abroad.
“I was reelected on the commitment that I would continue to stand up to the Chinese Communist Party and the growing threat they pose to our country. In the first three months of this Congress, I am proud to say that we are working hard to hold true to that promise. I know our community understands the threat of the CCP more than most, and I will continue to expose the Communist Chinese government for what it is – a very real threat to America’s national security,” stated Congresswoman Michelle Steel.
Throughout the 2022 campaign, Steel laid out the clear threat that the Chinese Communist Party poses and her commitment to tackling their aggression head on. In the first three months of this term, Steel has already made significant steps to deliver on her promise.
