Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is getting a dose of her own medicine this week, after her trip abroad was cancelled by President Trump. Hoping for a resolution to the government shutdown, Trump sent Pelosi a letter explaining why her trip was cancelled. This from Politico.
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.
This comes on the heels of Pelosi deliberately postponing President Trump’s State of the Union Address, in an attempt to antagonize Trump.
The President is still taking the highroad, with Pelosi, and has asked her to buckle down and work with to find solutions, to the problems America is facing at the moment.
Fox news released President Trump's letter to Pelosi, stating the following:
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.
We can only hope that President Trump continues to push Democrats to come to the table and negotiate with him on the important issues facing our country.
