Pelosi-Trump tit-for-tat

President Trump is denying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the use of a military plane during the government shutdown. The move comes after Pelosi called on Trump to delay his upcoming State of the Union address. Trump informed Pelosi that her “seven-day excursion” to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan is being postponed and can be rescheduled when shutdown ends. He also said that if she wants to go, should pay her own way by flying commercially.
