The White House on Friday banned the use of all government aircraft for congressional delegations without approval from the White House chief of staff during the partial government shutdown.
In a letter to the heads of all federal agencies and departments, acting Office of Management and Budget Director Russ Vought told officials that Trump asked him to explain these temporary policies regarding legislative branch travel.
Under no circumstances during a government shutdown will any government owned, rented, leased or chartered aircraft support any congressional delegation, without the express written approval of the White House chief of staff, Vought wrote. Nor will any funds appropriated to the Executive Branch be used for any congressional delegation travel expenses, without his express written approval.

Can he turn off the water to the bathrooms on Capital Hill as well?
Whose your daddy Nancy ????
Appropriate since the Cabinet Trip to Davos, Switzerland was cancelled. Trump don’t play.
Trump is serious. Let get this deal done. Hes legally tightening the screws
They could write their own budget, and even procure their own aircraft....but simply taking this to that level would create this giant money-pit with hundreds of millions spent on political tourism.
I don’t think the Democrats have ever had to engage and work with anyone like Trump. Bush would have folded over and allowed her to walk all over him.
HE SHOULD SHUT THE WATER AND HEATER OFF ON CAPITAL.
Maybe, but you don't want democrats any dirtier than they already are.
Big Daddy just took away their car keys.
makes sense. He’s the boss. I know that Nancy thinks she is the boss of the world. But she isn’t
Definitely turning the screws and prepping the battlefield.
Bush and his fellow NeverTrump Democrat/publicans would have never asked for The Wall in the first place.
Why do their families attend? If this is a work trip, high security, classified, and all that, why on earth are the families tagging along at the taxpayer expense?
Then, #NotHerPresident Trump shows her who her Daddy is.
“404 page not found.” Tried to access from my phone.
Maybe Trump could have the FDA issue a temporary ban on botox.
That would get under Pelosi’s skin.
He messed up. He should have let her go then say she can’t come back.
HARDBALL, Nancy, now we’re playing HARDBALL.
When you pick a fight with the King, you better make sure, um, you know, you have a good defensive position. Yeah, I’ll go with that.
