This is awesome. Childish? Yes. Was Pelosi being childish? Yes. Should Pelosi and other politicians be flying around the world on our dime to talk to people when we live in an age of secure, instant communication? No. Does Trump make an excellent point? Yep.
US President Donald Trump has postponed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s upcoming trip to Brussels and Afghanistan, asking her to stay to negotiate an end to the partial US government shutdown.
The president was able to halt the trip by denying the use of military aircraft to Mrs Pelosi and a delegation.
On Wednesday Mrs Pelosi had urged Mr Trump to postpone his State of the Union address, amid political deadlock.
Mr Trump’s move came on the 27th day of the US’s longest-ever federal shutdown.
