Opinion|  It looks like President trump is through playing games.

We all remember the images of Democrat lawmakers in Puerto Rico living high on the hog while Government workers are locked out of work by the shut down.  Well, it seems the President has decided to cut off the gravy train and tax payer credit card for Congress, at least for Pelosi’s up coming PR trip.

What I would not have given to see Pelosi’s face when she read this letter …

Breitbart is reporting that:

“President Donald Trump sent a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, demanding that she cancel her upcoming trip to Europe and the Middle East.

“Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed,” he wrote, informing the speaker that she could “reschedule” the weeklong trip abroad when the shutdown was over.

The president used a similar tone of Pelosi’s letter sent on Wednesday, urging him to cancel his State of the Union speech on January 29.”

President Trump wrote “I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the strong border security movement to end the shutdown,”

The President offered the Speaker of The House the opportunity to make the trip, just on a commercial airliner rather than a private jet.

“Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative,” President Trump stated.

Donald Trump also added  that he “looked forward” to sitting down and speaking with Pelosi soon in order to reach a deal that would end the shutdown.
