What did Nancy Pelosi do?
After President Trump said,
“we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution – and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good”,.
The viral moment was born after Pelosi looked at Trump, he turned around, and
Locking eyes with Trump, Nancy distinctively applauded.
What was the reason for the controversy?
The interaction came weeks after a standoff between congressional Democrats led by Pelosi and Trump and led to a partial government shutdown that lasted for more than a month.
As Trump demanded to fund for a border wall, Pelosi insisted negotiations must occur while the government was open. Even though the short-term funding bill included no money for his border wall, Trump ultimately agreed to temporarily end a 35-day government shutdown in late January.
On the 20th day of Shutdown, Nancy said,
“Federal workers will not be receiving their pay checks and what that means in their lives is tragic in terms of their credit rating, paying their mortgage, paying their rent, paying their children’s tuition and the rest.
The president seems to be insensitive to that.
He thinks maybe they could just ask their father for money, but they can’t. They can’t.”
House Speaker(Nancy Pelosi) criticized Trump’s Speech
The president broke the tradition when he began his roughly 80-minute speech before waiting for the Speaker to introduce him.
Nancy Pelosi wrote in a statement that,
“Instead of fear-mongering and manufacturing a crisis at the border, President Trump should commit to signing the bipartisan conference committee’s bill to keep the government open and provide strong, smart border security solutions,” .
“Sadly, while talking about perceived threats to the safety of the American people, he completely ignored the gun violence epidemic that is claiming lives across the country,”.
