What will China do if Pelosi visits Taiwan?

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is expected to visit Taiwan this week, according to senior Taiwanese and US officials. The precise date of her arrival is not yet known, but it’s already riling tensions in the region. China has repeated warnings that their military won’t “sit idly by” if it feels threatened by the visit. CNN Senior International Correspondent Will Ripley has the latest. Following his report we speak with former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, author of the new book Avoidable War: The Dangers of a Catastrophic Conflict Between the U.S. and Xi Jinping’s China. 

Also on today’s show: former English women’s soccer star Kelly Smith; Lis Smith, author of Any Given Tuesday: A Political Love Story.
