Earlier this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sent an invitation over to Trump for the annual congressional St. Patrick’s Day luncheon.
This is an even where a president or vice president has been present since the days of Ronald Reagan, but President Trump turned her down.
It is not exactly a secret that Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi don’t like each other.
The two of them have been at each other’s throats from virtually day one of this presidency.
In recent months, though, the situation has gotten much worse.
It seems like it started when Pelosi ripped up the State of the Union Address and was more than likely made worse after a profile piece on Pelosi was published in Variety.
In that article, Pelosi claimed that Trump was harming children, which may have been his breaking point.
Knowing how Pelosi has acted in the past, Trump decided to not give Pelosi the opportunity to attack him again.
Judd Deere, White House Deputy Press Secretary, stated, “Since the Speaker has chosen to tear this Nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric, the President will not participate in moments where she so often chooses to drive discord and disunity.”
Of course, Nancy Pelosi immediately fired back an insult, with her spokesperson stating that Trump should put “petty, partisan politics aside for this historic occasion.”
It Is What It Is
This relationship between these two will not get better anytime soon.
For those pointing the finger at only Trump, they better start paying better attention to what Pelosi and her fellow Dems are constantly saying and doing.
For instance, immediately after Trump’s coronavirus press conference, Dems went on the attack.
Then, during a Nancy Pelosi press conference, she stated our government officials needed to stop throwing around insults and work together.
She then proceeded to go on about a 10-minute rant slamming Trump and everyone he had appointed to the coronavirus task force.
After Democrats have repeatedly asked Trump to allow health care professionals to take care of addressing the coronavirus publicly, they are now slamming him for seemingly being more worried about the economy than the coronavirus.
This is a can’t-win scenario for Trump and the only way that changes is for the Republicans to take back the House and keep the Senate.
