Pelosi's office then was prepared to fly commercially - an idea Trump himself raised - but announced Friday morning the trip was being postponed because the administration had leaked details that could endanger the trip or the troops the speaker was to visit. A White House official denied this.
It can sometimes be easy to dismiss or even laugh off some of this president's craziest rhetoric and policy decisions, but this is no laughing matter.
MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace showed how losing his State Of The Union address was a political humiliation that prevents Trump from digging out of the crisis that he created.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote Donald Trump and disinvited him to deliver the State Of The Union due to the government shutdown.
There are three key reasons why Democrats aren't about to cave in, regardless of how many times this petulant president lashes out.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is setting Mitch McConnell up to own the shutdown by passing a bill to fund the FAA.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats have put the heat on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Trump by passing bills to reopen the IRS and Treasury Department.
Speaker Pelosi told the country that Donald Trump thinks that government workers can just ask their fathers for more money.
The networks must do the nation a service and give Democrats a chance to correct the record on a real-time basis following Trump's speech on immigration.
During the meeting on the government shutdown, Trump asked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was everyone wants to impeach him.
While Democrats were quick to get to work opening the U.S. government on Thursday, Trump continues to look like a petulant child.
Democrat Nancy Pelosi was elected on Thursday to be the new speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives as her party took majority control of the chamber following its election victory last Nov. 6.
Speaker Pelosi immediately turned the tables on Trump and Mitch McConnell by announcing that the House will vote on the Republican spending bill to reopen the government.
Trump has adopted a different tone with Nancy Pelosi that is a sign that he is scared of the incoming Speaker of the House who has the power to break him.
Before she walked into the meeting with Trump, soon to be Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi said that Trump would get absolutely nothing for his wall.
Members of both parties have already agreed on a bipartisan plan without wall funding that would keep the government open.
