President Trump Shuts Down Dems’ Attempt to Use Government Planes for Overseas Trip

How does it feel to be shut down, Nancy?

Pelosi was going on a “public relations” visit to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan with other Dems when President Trump brought their little junket to a halt.

President Donald Trump sent a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, demanding that she cancel her upcoming trip to Europe and the Middle East.
“Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed,” he wrote, informing the speaker that she could “reschedule” the weeklong trip abroad when the shutdown was over.

The president used a similar tone of Pelosi’s letter sent on Wednesday, urging him to cancel his State of the Union speech on January 29.

 

They were on their way to the airport when President Trump issued this:

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.

 

Not anymore.

And right on cue, the leftie media and the Dems have a total meltdown.

 

When 3 dozen Dems vacayed in Puerto Rico and Hawaii in the middle of this shutdown, the media didn’t bat an eye over the dismissive behavior.

More:

Trump’s letter comes just one day after Pelosi sent the White House a letter proposing that the president’s Jan. 29 State of the Union address be postponed until after the partial government shutdown ends.

“In September 2018, Secretary Nielsen designated State of the Union Addresses as National Special Security Events (NSSEs), recognizing the need for ‘the full resources of the Federal Government to be brought to bear’ to ensure the security of these events,” Pelosi’s letter reads. “The extraordinary demands presented by NSSEs require weeks of detailed planning with dozens of agencies working together to prepare for the safety of all participants. However, both the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security have not been funded for 26 days now — with critical departments hamstrung by furloughs,” the letter adds. “Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th.”

Like the flight cancellation, Pelosi’s proposal is a nakedly political calculation, as noted yesterday. Both the U.S. Secret Service and Homeland Security disputed the speaker’s suggestion that they’ve been hobbled by a lack of funding. The Secret Service revealed further that they weren’t even contacted by the speaker’s office regarding her supposed reason for wanting to postpone the State of the Union.

Pelosi’s concerns are obvious nonsense, given that she extended the invitation to Trump on Jan. 3, 12 full days into the partial government shutdown.

Pelosi tried to pull a power move on the White House. On Thursday, Trump landed a brutally timed counter-punch. His reasoning — that she should be in the nation’s capital to continue negotiating the end of the shutdown — is a scathingly shrewd touch. Also, just to rub some salt in the wound, a White House official confirmed to NBC News that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is still slated to fly to Davos, Switzerland, for next week’s World Economic Forum.

Like the GOP presidential field in the 2016 primaries, Pelosi may be learning the hard way that you can’t out-troll Trump. This is his bread and butter.

 

Touché, Mr. President.

Fuck the leftie media conglomerate and fuck the unhinged, arrogant, hypocritical Dems. Their ass should stay put until a deal is reached for the resumption of full government operations and a funding for a border wall is included.

  1. Pelosi is an arrogant pig. Dems want to take our guns but can’t attend SOTU because of the lack of security( people with weapons). What a two faced hag. She and her power hungry, anti- Trump buddies got a reality check from The Donald and didn’t like it. Tough shit. Get to work FOR America or get the hell out of the way you wrinkled up old windbag?
