Talking Trump cancels Nancy Pelosi's foreign trip citing shutdown

I loved reading this! If many federal workers aren't receiving their pay, Congress shouldn't, either. Unfortunately they are still getting paid, but should forgo expensive trips that do nothing for the American people who are funding them.

Quote:
US President Donald Trump has postponed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's upcoming trip to Brussels, Afghanistan and Egypt, citing the government shutdown.

"I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate," Mr Trump said in a letter.

Mrs Pelosi urged Mr Trump on Wednesday to postpone his State of the Union address, citing the political deadlock.

Mr Trump's move came on the 27th day of a partial US government shutdown.

The Republican president wants $5.7bn (£4.4bn) of congressional funding to build a wall on the US-Mexico border, but Democrats have refused.

According to Fox News, Mr Trump's cancellation of the trip emerged barely half an hour before the Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives was scheduled to leave on Thursday afternoon.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shared the letter in a tweet.

"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," Mr Trump wrote.

In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.”


“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,” Trump wrote.
Gawd I love Trump. Serves the biotch right. Funny thing is Trump will prolly still do the SOTU address somewhere. Would love to see him do it at the border.

Nancy Pelosi believes, and has stated, that her position is equal to that of the President of the United States because she is Speaker of the House. She is Constitutionally, and functionally WRONG!

Nancy is Speaker of the House. The result of being elected "Congressman" amoung 235 other such lowly figures in our National government. There isn't a lower level elected office in the national Government. She represents her constituents from San Francisco, not the nation of the USA.

She has no business doing foreign affairs when her domestic work remains unfinished.

I like that idea.

Even when there is no good reason, Trump can't not lie.

The trip did not include Egypt in any way, shape or form. And the FLIGHT takes you through Brussels and on to Afghanistan where she was going to thank the troops.
He's a petulant child who finally came up against an experienced mother. Maybe that's why it took him almost two days to come up with something.


Trump officials are set to travel with that airhead biotch Davos to Switzerland for an economic summit where Trump won't attend. Just as well he doesn't do well among polite people anyway.
But why is Blondie airhead going?? She's just the anti-school marm.

Pelosi said he could do it from the oval or wherever. She's just not inviting him to congress.

He'll probably toilet tweet it.

the government funding package passed by the House January 4th 2019 was the exact same plan passed by the Senate GOP just weeks before. And yet, they refuse to vote on it.
That is the kind of sh*t Rush Limbaugh and whatsername caused when they jumped on the POTUS for going along with a compromise.

Is it President Donald or Rush?

Correction

somewhere on this thread or a thread/ post like the ones in this thread I said Davos and trump officials were flying to Switzerland. It is to Davos they are flying amidst the shut down.

Who, in the name of Schumer's butthole, elected Pelosi to be a cheerleader for the troops? And, shouldn't she be keeping her fat ass in Washington working with the rest of the finest politicians money can buy, to re-open the government?
