Things have been tense between Pelosi and Trump the last few day as both politicians are trying to make the other blink on this government shut down. Trump wants border security. Pelosi and her donors want open borders. That’s going to be a tough compromise to make. Both sides have tried to put pressure on each other to fold. Pelosi is playing games with the State of the Union and saying she won’t invite Trump to speak and now Trump is canceling her travel plans.
From Fox News:
He wrote: “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. 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. I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown. Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative.”
He nailed that.
The best part about this is that Pelosi was on the tarmac with her bags packed when the news broke.
Her fellow Democrats were on the bus on the way to meet her.
What was she doing taking a trip during the shut down anyway.
But, that’s how it goes. Pelosi has been playing with fire and trolling Trump. That’s what you get. Trump isn’t messing around.
