The battle between US President Donald Trump and US speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken a new dimension as US Speaker, Nancy Pelosi was filmed ripping up a printed copy of President Donald Trump’s address.
This act was done by the US speaker barely minutes after the US President stood before the lawmakers to give an account of the progress his administration has made since he got elected.
While addresing the lawmakers, President Donald Trump stated that he was coming to the house with incredible results as “jobs are booming, incomes are soaring, poverty is plummeting, crime is falling, confidence is surging, and our country is thriving and highly respected again! America’s enemies are on the run, America’s fortunes are on the rise, and America’s future is blazing bright.”
After he concluded his speech, Trump was applauded by lawmakers but House’s speaker, Nancy Pelosi took a printed copy of Trump’s speech and tore it in half.
She placed the shredded copy in a stack on the dais as Trump made his way to greet members of Congress.
When asked by reporters why she tore the speech, she said;
“It was the courteous thing to do given the alternative.”
