WASHINGTON — U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended her trip to Taiwan on Tuesday as “absolutely” worth it and said the United States cannot allow China to isolate the self-governing island.

“We cannot allow the Chinese government to isolate Taiwan,” Pelosi said in an interview with NBC’s “Today” show. “They’re not going to say who can go to Taiwan.”
