Trump Tells Pelosi Her Trips Are Postponed Due to Shutdown Unless She Flies Commercial

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Tyler Durden  /  ZeroHedge

Just one day after Speaker Pelosi chose to exercise her right to not invite the President to give his “State of the Union” address, Trump has responded.

In a letter to Nancy Pelosi, President Trump explains that he will be postponing her trip to various foreign countries due to the shutdown.

Dear Madame Speaker:

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.

I look forward to seeing you soon and even more forward to watching our open and dangerous Southern Border finally receive the attention, funding, and security it so desperately deserves!

Amusingly, Fox News reports that Speaker Pelosi was due to leave for her trip at 3pm.

Meanwhile, according to Fox News reporter, Chad Pergram, “furious calls” are going “back and forth” from The Hill to the State to the Pentagon and White House.

USAF bus back on Capitol plaza. Mbrs getting off bus & going back into Capitol

The Daily Caller’s Benny Johnson reports that the bus of congressional Democrats had already left the Capitol on it’s way to a military jet to fly to Europe, and were en route when they heard that Trump had canceled their trip, forcing the bus to turn around, and “members were “furious”.”

Oh. My. God.

The bus full of congressional Democrats had already *LEFT* the Capitol on it’s way to a military jet to fly to Europe.

They were *en route* when they heard that Trump had canceled their trip.

Judging by the level of rhetoric – we are absolutely nowhere near escaping the shutdown. Some overnight tweets from Trump say it all.

It is becoming more and more obvious that the Radical Democrats are a Party of open borders and crime. They want nothing to do with the major Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border. #2020!

So funny to watch Schumer groveling. He called for the firing of bad cop James Comey many times – UNTIL I FIRED HIM!

‘Tit’… meet ‘tat’

“It demeans the office is the presidency because it is so petty,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer says of Trump’s decision to deny Nancy Pelosi use of a military plane for a planned overseas trip (which we presume means he did not think Pelosi’s decision to rescind Trump’s SOTU speech invitation “demeaned the office of the Speaker”?)

      That’s priceless. You demons will not win, go President Trump we have your back


      Trump for President. As I just wrote a friend it takes a New Yorker w/ balls to deal with these scumbags.

      Gotta love him!

        “unless she flies commercial.” Are you kidding? THAT is your idea of leadership? She’s worth near 200 million $. She could BUY her own plane to fly over. Or have Soros/Bezos lend theirs’.
        And it still frees her to undermine Trump overseas and subvert him in foreign war zones like Bolton just did.
        Pelosi, Inc serves POTUS foreign policy- not her own.
        She is NOT the State Dept. She must be forbidden to represent the US on any official business anywhere. Drumpf’s buckling to Pompeo/ Bolton set the precedence for this…
        Unless its Drumpf grandstanding: they are setting up for the troops remain in Syria as ‘insubordinates defying Drumpf’, while actually carrying out Drumpf’s handlers’ agenda- troops stay in M.E.
