President Trump rocked the world and made headlines everywhere after releasing a letter on Thursday. His letter was sent to Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Just days after Pelosi advocated that President Trump not be allowed to give his State of the Union speech, the President hit back. He canceled her plans to travel overseas! It was a big league move that many found to be controversial.
The full letter can be read below:
The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515
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 is 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.
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!
Donald J. Trump
On Friday, news broke that Pelosi's team was apparently trying to make travel arrangements via commercial airlines. However, they are now accusing the Trump administration of leaking their travel plans and creating a security risk that has them permanently grounded. The rumors have not yet been confirmed and Pelosi's office provided no evidence to support their claims.
"In the middle of the night, the State Department's Diplomatic Security Service provided an updated threat assessment detailing that the President announcing this sensitive travel had significantly increased the danger to the delegation and to the troops, security, and other officials supporting the trip," Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said. "This morning, we learned that the administration had leaked the commercial travel plans as well."
