PELOSI GROUNDED! House Speaker Finds Out En Route to Airport That Flight is Canceled – Told ‘Fly Commercial’
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders posted a letter that President Donald Trump sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi informing her that her upcoming “public relations” trip to Afghanistan, Egypt, and Brussels has been postponed so that she can stay in DC and negotiate with him.
Pelosi was told to fly commercial on her own dime.
“Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative,” Trump wrote his letter to Pelosi.
This is epic!
It gets better…
House Speaker Pelosi and other lawmakers were on the bus, en route to the airport when she found out Trump canceled the “public relations” trip.

The letter from President Trump to Pelosi read:
“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,” the letter begins. “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.”
President Trump said in his letter that he looks forward to seeing Nancy Pelosi soon.
