Two travelers from Taiwan Cartoon by Rebel Pepper

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen is set to visit the United States and meet House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in an effort to shore up U.S. support amid increasing Chinese military pressure on the island. Meanwhile, Tsai's predecessor Ma Ying-jeou, whose opposition party espouses closer ties with Beijing, is visiting China. Ma raised eyebrows back home when he echoed Beijing's official line that people in democratic Taiwan and in mainland China are all "from the same family." Ma, described by Beijing state media as a "former Taiwan leader," is receiving a red-carpet welcome but is not scheduled to meet any Chinese leaders.
