Lindsey Graham Scolds Trump for his “inappropriate” Letter to Nancy Pelosi
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) scolded President Trump for his “inappropriate” letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“President Trump denying Speaker Pelosi military travel to visit our troops in Afghanistan, our allies in Egypt and NATO is also inappropriate,” Graham said in a tweet in response to President Donald Trump’s letter postponing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s trip to visit U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Trump’s denying of Pelosi’s trip comes as a White House official said Secretary of State Mnuchin will lead a delegation to Davos, as planned.
In response to Pelosi’s threat to cancel Trump’s State of the Union address, the senator said in a tweet, “One sophomoric response does not deserve another. Speaker Pelosi’s threat to cancel the State of the Union is very irresponsible and blatantly political … I am glad the Speaker wants to meet our troops and hear from our commanders and allies. I am very disappointed she’s playing politics with the State of the Union.”
Expressing his frustration with the ongoing dissension between Trump and Pelosi, Graham said, “I wish our political leadership could find the same desire to work for common goals as those who serve our nation in uniform and other capacities.”
