Donald Trump postpones Nancy Pelosi’s overseas trip over government shutdown

Donald Trump has issued a stern letter to one of his most bitter political rivals, effectively cancelling her planned overseas trip..

Donald Trump has postponed Nancy Pelosi’s planned overseas trip as a result of the ongoing partial government shutdown.

The US President sent a letter to the House Speaker informing her he will postpone her seven-day trip to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan — presumably by not letting her use military aircraft as transport — based on the shutdown, which today enters its 27th day.

“Dear Madame Speaker,” the letter begins, “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed.”

He notes the week-long “excursion” will be rescheduled when the shutdown ends.

“In light of the 800,000 American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate,” he 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.”

However, he did not entirely bar the House Speaker from travelling.

“Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative.”
