President Trump sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday afternoon informing her an upcoming taxpayer funded, military escorted trip overseas has been postponed.
"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 it 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," President Trump wrote.
"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!" he concluded.
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.
Yesterday Speaker Pelosi wrote a letter to President Trump suggesting his State of the Union Address should be postponed. In the letter, she lied about the Secret Service being incapable to provide adequate security for the event.

Blog Author's Comments: President Trump has the strength and determination to carry through on what he believes to be right and what is best for our country. Nancy Pelosi, at this point in time, has no intention of attempting to negotiate a solution to the border crisis.
I feel that the following is the best part of thee above article: "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." This was excellent timing on the part of the President and his staff and a just reward for what Pelosi and her flunkies are doing.
Whenever I think that Hillary Clinton could have been the president, I am emboldened by the fact that we have Donald J. Trump. This leads me to believe that there is still some justice in America, along with many voters that can think for themselves without wasting their time watching and believing what appears in the mainstream media. Why should Nancy Pelosi be commanding federal government resources from individuals who are not getting paid? And why does she need to travel abroad (with Adam Schiff and other assorted never Trumpers) when there is very important work to be accomplished here, for our citizens?
Where the wall/fence/barrier has been built it is working. At each location the illegal crossings have dropped by at least 90%. Maybe the "majority" of Americans do not know the facts or do not think illegals illegals will have any effect on them. Many democrats were for the wall before they were against it. But, politics will play more of a role for democrats now, because they are dealing with President Trump and according to the Democratic Party they are supposed to be opposed to anything they are told will help his status in our country as the time passes towards the 2020 election.
