Posted on 01/17/2019 1:08:37 PM PST by Kaslin
President Trump sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday afternoon informing her an upcoming taxpayer funded, military escorted trip overseas has been postponed.
"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 it 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," President Trump wrote.
"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!" he concluded.

The trip was part of a larger congressional delegation through the Department of Defense and President Trump denied her military aircraft. According to Fox News, Pelosi was scheduled to leave at 3 p.m. eastern on Thursday afternoon. The letter was sent at 2:20 p.m. An Air Force bus is currently sitting outside House offices, waiting to take lawmakers to the airport. Many of them are on the bus.
Fox is told CapHill security officials got an emergency call from the Pentagon canceling the overseas trip due to shutdown. No one here knows if the trip is going to happen or not. Lots of confusion pic.twitter.com/eFCqsaNcGe— Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) January 17, 2019
Yesterday Speaker Pelosi wrote a letter to President Trump suggesting his State of the Union Address should be postponed. In the letter, she lied about the Secret Service being incapable to provide adequate security for the event.
Is she looking a little teary eyed?
Well, that’s about 4 now. ;-)
And thank you for posting this. I never get tired of reading this story.
OMG !! all the new cloths
He didn’t say she couldn’t go back to Hawaii.
Bravo, Mr. President! Chess beats checkers once again.
Nice move, Donald.
Is she looking a little teary eyed?
With her frozen face how would you know?
GOOD! She might have wanted to make a special stop to pick up some chocolate-covered strawberries.
LOL. She looks like she’s had Botox.
“Is she looking a little teary eyed?
With her frozen face how would you know?”
And with her next facelift, she will have to start shaving her chin!
It must think she be equal to...Donald By-GOD-TRUMP.45!
Nancy thought she was Boss but oops
The voters thought they would reset the political landscape by putting Pelosi and the Democrats in power. America is standing back and watching how they perform. I think they are getting buyer’s remorse. While Trump serves the champions, the Clemson Tigers, hamburgers in the White House, the Democrats are serving up one big crapburger.
Maybe the Democrats should be renamed the Democraps.
That and when Reagan woke up on morning and exclaimed "so when does the bombing start?" I was too young to appreciate that though.
Looks like he called her bluff on this one. If the Secret Service can't provide security in Washington, how in the heck can they do it in a war zone like Afghanistan???
“Nice move, Donald.”
Now, take away her government-provided plane that she uses to fly back and forth to San Francisco, or at least give her a really small biz jet that will only accommodate a half-dozen hanger’s on! Actually, we have a Cessna Citation X in our family business, and it’s very comfortable Nancy. You’d like it and it only costs about $6k per hour to fly!
I thought The Government was shutdown and that there wasnt enough security?
Make your mind up Madame Peloser.
