The White House announced that Pelosi's trip was in line with US policy on Taiwan and that the US would carefully follow China's actions after Pelosi's departure.

In the US Senate, a group of 26 Republicans issued a statement in support of Pelosi's trip to Taiwan. “This trip is in line with the US One China policy to which we are committed,” said Republican Mitch McConnell (quoted by Bloomberg).
