U.S. senators Cordy Gardner, Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton, John Cornyn, and Ted Cruz issed a letter to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asking her to invite Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen to address a joint session of the U.S. Congress in order to “enhance U.S. leadership in the Indo-Pacific region, and justly reward a true friend”. The senators pointed out that the visit would be in accordance with the new Taiwan Travel Act and praised President Tsai for her commitment to democracy and freedom. MOFA spokesman Andrew Lee thanked the U.S. senators for the letter but said that Tsai currently has no plans to travel to Washington. <Accessed 2019-02-11>
