READ: Donald Trump Sends Nancy Pelosi a Letter: ‘Due to the Shutdown, I Am Sorry to Inform You That Your Trip to Brussels, Egypt & Afghanistan Has Been Postponed’

Petty much?

President Donald Trump on Thursday responded to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) request to delay his State of the Union speech so long as the government remains shut down.

In a letter to Pelosi, Trump said he “postponed” an upcoming Congressional delegation to Afghanistan, Egypt, and Belgium, though he said Pelosi, a multi-millionaire, could still make the trip if she chooses to fly commercial. Pelosi was supposed to leave Thursday afternoon.

“We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the shutdown is over,” 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.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders posted the letter to Twitter, in which “Madam Speaker” was misspelled.

The typo did not go unnoticed, and people doubt if Trump wrote the letter himself.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a key Trump ally, wrote on Twitter that Pelosi and Trump are acting “sophomoric,” adding that Trump’s decision to table Pelosi’s trip is “inappropriate.”

Some think Trump’s response shows that Pelosi is getting under his skin.
