Trump cancels Nancy Pelosi foreign trip citing shutdown

Trump cancels Nancy Pelosi foreign trip citing shutdown | 18 Jan 2019 | 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. "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," Mr Trump wrote. The president added that Mrs Pelosi could proceed with the trip - which he described as a "public relations event" - using a commercial airline.
