This is amazing.

Thursday, Trump wrote a letter to Speaker Pelosi informing her that her upcoming trip abroad was postponed.

The letter reads:

“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.”

And here’s the letter:

But it gets better. Pelosi was en route to the airport when she learned her trip abroad had been canceled.

Wednesday, Pelosi wrote Trump recommending he delay the State of the Union address until the government re-opens. And now we know that was on the eve of a week-long trip abroad… in case there was any question about the gamesmanship here.

Cue political posturing from all sides and hyperbolic claims of a pending Armageddon due to Pelosi’s trip being canceled.
