Pelosi accuses Trump of endangering troops, lawmakers

Pelosi SOT "It was very irresponsible on the part of the president" U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hit back at President Donald Trump on Friday for allegedly leaking her commercial travel plans to visit Afghanistan… after Trump denied her the use of a military aircraft to make the trip.

Pelosi SOT "we had a report from Afghanistan that the president outing our trip had made the scene on the ground much more dangerous because it's just a signal to the bad actors that you are coming….

You never give advanced notice when going into a battle area…" The White House quickly DENIED leaking Pelosi's plans to travel with several other Democratic lawmakers..

Saying in a statement quote "The idea we would leak anything that would put the safety and security of any American at risk is an offensive flat out lie." Citing the 4-week-old partial government shutdown, on Thursday, Trump sent a letter to Pelosi calling off her travel plans just before she was set to depart, saying quote "Due to the Shutdown, I'm sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan has been postponed." The move appeared to be in retaliation for Pelosi's request a day earlier that Trump postpone the State of the Union address until the shutdown was resolved….

The White House on Friday said it was barring U.S. congressional travel on government-owned or operated aircraft during the partial government shutdown unless approved by the administration… As meaningful negotiations between President Trump and Democrats seem to be fading, the president is showing no signs of budging from his position that he would not reopen government until Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, agreed to put $5.7 billion dollars toward a wall on the border with Mexico.

As the two sides continue to feud, the hardship grows daily for some 800,000 federal employees who are furloughed or working without pay.
