Two Can Play That Game: Trump Cancels Nancy's Fancy Trip After SOTU Scuffle

Linkedin Share

The bitter fight between Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi is growing ever more trite as the government remains gridlocked over the issue of border security.

Nancy Pelosi has become the de facto democratic target during this time of federal malfeasance, having not only refused to meet with the President to discuss an end to the shutdown, but also attempting to cancel POTUS’ State of The Union address on account of a “lack of security”.

Of course, the Secret Service were quick to lambast Pelosi for her erroneous scheme.

We all know that President Trump isn’t one to forgive or forget easily, hence his recent rebuttal to Pelosi’s nonsense.

President Donald Trump hit back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, claiming in a letter that he had postponed planned congressional trips abroad to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan because of the government shutdown.

The remarkable counter-punch came in the form of a terse letter to Pelosi blasted out to reporters and promoted by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Twitter. It marked the president’s first public response to Pelosi’s Wednesday morning request to postpone the annual State of the Union address at the end of the month, citing security concerns stemming from the lengthy shutdown.

“Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed,” Trump wrote. “We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate.”

Trump pulled no punches on the timing of his decree, either, waiting until one hour before Pelosi was set to depart to make his decision public.
