Nancy Pelosi Trump | Nancy Pelosi President
After a reporter asked her during a news conference on June 9, 2017, about tweets by Trump responding to the testimony of former FBI James Comey before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Pelosi said no one at the White House seemed courageous enough to tell Trump that his tweets were beneath the dignity of the presidency and said that she was worried about his fitness. When asked in November, about Democrats beginning the impeachment process against Trump in the event they won a majority of seats in the 2018 elections, Pelosi said it would not be one of their legislative priorities but that the option could be considered if credible evidence appeared during the ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Pelosi in January 2018, referred to Trump’s 2018 State of the Union Address as a performance that was without serious policy ideas that both parties could collaborate on. Nancy questioned Trump’s refusal to implement Russian sanctions after over 500 members of Congress voted to approve them. After Trump blocked the release of a Democratic memo by the Intelligence Committee, in February, Pelosi said the act was a stunningly brazen attempt to cover up the truth about the Trump-Russia scandal from the American people and part of a dangerous and desperate pattern of cover-up on the part of the President who had shown he had something to hide.
In March, she stated that she was more concerned about the president’s policies which undermine the financial security of America’s working families than the Stormy Daniels–Donald Trump scandal. She noted the scandal as having highlighted a double standard of Republicans on issues of family values and expectations of presidential behavior, saying the party would be very involved if the event was happening to a Democrat.
Following Scooter Libby being pardoned by Trump, in April, Pelosi released a statement saying the pardon sends a troubling signal to the president’s allies that obstructing justice will be rewarded and that the idea of those who lie under oath being granted a pardon poses a threat to the integrity of the special counsel investigation, and to our democracy. After Trump revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan on August 15, Pelosi stated the move was a stunning abuse of power & a pathetic attempt to silence critics and an attempt by Trump to avoid attention to other issues of his administration. Pelosi and Charles E. Schumer met with Trump and Pence in December 2018 to discuss changes to be made when the new Democratic representatives takes office in 2019.

Pelosi plays by her own rules and strikes out Trump
On Wednesday morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced President Donald Trump, and her expanded Democratic caucus, to the big leagues.
By sending a carefully crafted, old-school letter to convey that the President was no longer invited to deliver the State of the Union on January 29, she played the political game on her terms and accomplished three important things.
First, the President will no longer deliver the biggest speech of the year on the date he selected (unless something changes in a big way soon). Both the House and the Senate have to pass resolutions for the State of the Union to proceed; neither have done so, and the decision about whether the House passes one at all rests with Pelosi.
It is true that television viewership of the State of the Union has dropped (though online viewership has steadily climbed), and in the age of Twitter, online videos and ample other options for direct connection to voters, the power of a presidential speech is far smaller.
But the State of the Union is still one of the last relics of the power of the bully pulpit. It offers presidents the opportunity to lay out their agenda for the year ahead, give direction to Congress (including their own party in Congress) and deliver a blueprint for campaign messaging. It also allows every president to get a few jabs in on the opposing party.
As of now Trump can deliver his speech from the Oval Office if he wants, though last week’s performance should be a warning on how ineffective that can be. Or he can do it at a rally and speak to the same people he will speak to for the next year and a half — or he can “write it,” as Pelosi suggested.
None of those options is as impactful as a traditional State of the Union. And none of these options will position the House speaker behind him while he blames Democrats for the shutdown.
Second, Pelosi showed Trump and members of her own party why she is the boss. Congress is a co-equal branch of government, and she was has every right to disinvite the President. But there is no doubt she left Trump, many members of his staff and many of the freshmen and up-and-coming members of her own caucus surprised she had the power to disinvite him. If anyone needed a reminder as to why an experienced speaker, who knows how to fight gracefully with a bully on her own terms, is needed right now, Wednesday’s events were a healthy reminder.
She even boxed in Republicans. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy went from rightly condemning the racist comments of fellow member Steve King one day earlier to lowering himself to using gender-tinged language to criticize Pelosi the next. He described her decision as “unbecoming” — as if he were talking about a woman not wearing pantyhose to a cotillion dance, not a speaker of the House using her legal capacity to disinvite the President from speaking on the House floor.
Third, she reminded the American public that Trump has the power to end the shutdown. While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has somehow managed to throw his hands up in the air and claim powerlessness without suffering publicly, House Democrats have been more visible in the fight. Her actions helped unite Democrats, while also turning the spotlight back on the President.
Pelosi clearly struck a nerve with the President, who hamhandedly lashed out Thursday afternoon, informing her hours before the plane was to depart that her trip had been effectively canceled. What he failed to acknowledge, and is now exceedingly awkward for him, is that the trip was to meet with top NATO commanders, US military leaders and key allies as well as a stop in Afghanistan to thank the troops. Never mind the fact that the President himself had already traveled to Iraq on a Republican CODEL during the shutdown.
Success for Pelosi here is not preventing Trump from giving a speech. He can do that any day. It is not avoiding criticism from Republicans; that too is inevitable. But with one letter, she made clear there is a new speaker in town, she is playing by her own rules and the President and his team better be ready.
