Trump Clips Pelosi’s Wings

Trump Cancels Pelosi Trip











On Wednesday, Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to President Trump in effect cancelling the President’s traditional State of the Union Address saying, “…since the start of modern budgeting in Fiscal Year 1977, a State of the Union address has never been delivered during a government shutdown... given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th.”

Yesterday afternoon President Trump sent the following letter to Speaker Pelosi:

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


Allegedly, the President canceled Pelosi’s flight just one hour before she was scheduled to depart — Pelosi and other Democrat lawmakers were on the bus en route to the airport. Among the Democrats on a bus left circling the Capitol were New York Democrat and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Eliot Engel, California Democrat and Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Adam Schiff, Arkansas Democratic Socialist Rep. Danny K. Davis, and Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Stephen Lynch.

Conservatives were quick to issue statements supporting the President because, that letter, in a nutshell, is why the MAGA coalition exists and why it is unbreakable as long as Trump remains true to himself and his campaign promises.

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump canceling a planned trip by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to Europe, Africa and Asia on military aircraft:

At a time when there is a partial government shutdown, it would be a slap in the face of those federal workers who have been sidelined due to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to negotiate border security funding measures for the Speaker to go on a seven-day, worldwide junket. The President’s cancellation of the Speaker’s ability to utilize military aircraft for this trip is appropriate and it is hoped that the Democrats who recently partied in Puerto Rico and Pelosi herself who spent the first week of the shutdown in Hawaii will finally get serious about protecting our nation’s security and build the wall.

Conservatives on social media weighed in to support the President, with the Washington Examiner (@DCExaminer) tweeting:

Pelosi finding out the hard way that you can't out-troll Trump

Fox News commentator and former Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz tweeted:

Stunning @SpeakerPelosi is willing to travel around the world but won't sit with @realDonaldTrump to secure our border.

Our friend Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA (@charliekirk11) tweeted:

Pelosi was on the tarmac right when our amazing President cancelled her trip overseas

Nancy should be negotiating for secure borders not traveling overseas while 800,000 Americans are without pay!

Keep fighting Mr President, we are with you!

The Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft (@gatewaypundit) tweeted:

Reaganesque: Trump Reminds Pelosi and Global Leaders He Is Still President With Abrupt Cancellation of Usurper Pelosi's World Tour

Can you imagine the late President George H.W. Bush, former President George W. Bush, the late John McCain or failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney sending that letter to Nancy Pelosi?

What conservatives of all stripes having been waiting for for decades is a leader who will fight back against the Uniparty consensus in Washington, and Donald Trump has proven to be that leader.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call the White House at 202-456-1111 or use this link to email the White House to let President Trump know that canceling Pelosi’s trip was great and that you support him and the Wall and that he should hang tough in the face of Speaker Pelosi’s obstruction.
