President Trump on Thursday hit back at Speaker Nancy Pelosi for warning she may postpone the State of the Union address by scrapping her planned trip overseas.

“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.”
Trump added, however, if Pelosi wanted to go ahead by flying commercial, “that would certainly be your prerogative.”
