During her 19-hour stay in Taipei, she met with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen and also visited the legislature, and met Taiwan lawmakers.

"Our delegation had the distinct privilege of meeting with the President of Taiwan @Iingwen today," Pelosi tweeted.

"It was also my high honor to receive from President @iingwen of Taiwan the Order of Propitious Clouds with Special Grand Cordon: a symbol of our treasured friendship. Make no mistake: America remains unwavering in our commitment to the people of Taiwan– now & for decades to come," she said in another tweet.
