Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi postponed the SOTU message because she was afraid people would put pressure on Democrats afterward to build the wall.
Today President Trump sent Pelosi a letter similar to the one she sent him, informing her that her 7 day overseas trip would be postponed due to the shut down. He did however, tell her she could go on the trip as long as she is willing to pay for it herself. Ouch. That one is going to leave a mark. Hey, Nancy, this is the Trump Republican party. Your days of bullying are over. Get used to it. Trump will not roll over for you.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has posted a letter that President Donald Trump sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi informing her that her upcoming “public relations” trip to Afghanistan, Egypt, and Brussels has been postponed so that she can stay in DC and negotiate with him.
The letter adds that she is welcome to still take the trip — but she would have to fly commercial on her own dime.
“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,” the letter begins. “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.”

President Trump added that “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,” Trump wrote.
The letter concludes by saying that he looks forward to seeing her soon and “even more forward to watching our open and dangerous Southern Border finally receive the attention, funding, and security it so desperately deserves.”
