Moments ago, President Trump wrote a scathing letter to Speaker Pelosi in which he canceled her overseas trip to Brussels and other foreign countries. According to reports, her flight was supposed to leave ONE HOUR before Trump blasted out this letter.
“I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate,” Mr Trump said his letter.
According to Fox News, the trip cancellation was announced just an hour before the Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives was scheduled to leave on Thursday afternoon.
“Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed,” Trump wrote. “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,” the president wrote. “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.”
In conclusion, Trump told Pelosi that she could FLY COMMERCIAL if she still wants to go on her trip!
“Obviously if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative”, Trump added.
Here is the letter in full:
