Trump Denies Pelosi Use of Military Aircraft

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.

    Makes me want to put on my Trump 2020 hat!

    I have no problem with the trip being cancelled.  But I missed the outrage from you folks when walker was flying all over the state when he could have stayed in the mansion.

    k:  Make sure that MAGA hat is mad in the US.  Most, if not all, are made in Viet Nam.

    I’m not racist. I support jobs for all!

    There are so many jobs in U.S., thanks to Trump, there are not enough workers.

    If we have to utilize overseas workforce to help with and share prosperity of U.S., that is the best possible peace plan anywhere!

    Childish, Owen?

    800,000 people are in some distress because Pelosi will not cough up the money for appropriate national security.  Some of those 800,000 are required to work without pay.  Tens of thousands of Americans are injured or killed by drugs run over the unsecured border; thousands of Americans are dead at the hands of illegal aliens, and many thousands more are at risk due to the presence of these people.

    The Only Adult in the Room called a halt to Pelosi’s games, Owen.

    Did Melania *really* need to go to Florida today?

    We all know facts are troublesome for you, but here are some to chew on;

    “I am proud to shut down the government for border security,” Trump said during a tense argument with Schumer and Pelosi as cameras rolled before the leaders’ Oval Office meeting. Later, he added: “If we don’t get what we want, one way or the other … I will shut down the government, absolutely.”

    Pelosi wasn’t in charge when the shutdown started.

    There was a deal worked out that everybody agreed to until Coulter and Limbaugh chimed in.

    There is no adult in the Oval Office, only a spoiled and petulant child with a bad hairdo.

    >Pelosi wasn’t in charge when the shutdown started.

    She’s in charge now.  Oh, and if she wasn’t in charge when it started, why was she in the oval office having a “tense argument”with Trump before it started?

    >There was a deal worked out that everybody agreed to until Coulter and Limbaugh chimed in.

    Limbaugh and Coulter have veto powers now?

    Your alternative set of facts that match your liberal blinders are amazing.

  10. Le Roi du Nord


    Can you actually dispute those facts?

    Did trump utter those words?

    Was Pelosi Speaker when the shutdown started?

    Did trump walk away from a deal he had already agreed to ?

    Have at it smart guy….

    Pelosi is Speaker now, ex-Gummint employee.

    She will not meet with Trump, ex-Gummint employee.

    People are dying, having serious cash problems, and are addicted to drugs coming across the UNSECURE border, ex-Gummint employee.

    You are entitled to your pension, but not your own facts.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann

    The only criticism Trump should be getting on this is:

    He should have let Pelosi and her posse’ fly out….

    And then cancel the return flight home.

    That would have instantly improved America.

    Trump is just a nice guy.

  13. Le Roi du Nord


    You are correct; I am a former government employee, and I am entitled to my pension.  Do I sense some jealousy on your part?

    Did you have anything else to say of merit?

    Owen has a sex offender regularly trolling his blog? I’ve wondered why the mean girl commenters here react the way they do to posts that have even a whiff of moral content to them.
