Listen: Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi, President Trump discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House
"Offering up more thrills in a trip with Prince Philip down a country lane in a Land Rover monocle twenty fours. Very own cutouts, Rabelo, Ben Ryland and financial aggressive fish echo. Welcome team. Hi, emma. Right. Let's begin with the shutdown and one thing that can be said about Donald Trump's approach to disputes as he takes things. Very personally take the latest developments in the government shutdown this week things got down and dirty as the house speaker Nancy Pelosi requested for President Trump to either cancel his state of the union address because the staff usually used for the security on there because of the shutdown. Mr. Trump responded by cancelling Musalo needs play Pelosi's plane to Afghanistan. This is a sorry state of affairs. Isn't it? It's absoulutely. Terrifying. Actually, I I it was it was interesting. I I wasn't quite certain that that Pelosi had uninvited Trump from the state of the union. I think that was misreported, and perhaps misinterpreted by a lot on the Republican side. She heads into letter that strongly strongly suggested that it be postponed, perhaps take place in a different format such as giving it a over television from the Oval Office or Babs delivering it in writing. I as far as I can tell she didn't say you are not getting your state of the union. I think that seems to be something that the Republicans have chosen to miss interpret to then perhaps in some sort of reverse way with an is against Nancy Pelosi to make her out to be the petty one who went petty. I is a very clever way of saying I'm not stopping you from doing your job. But I'm just going to make it clear that there are difficulties connected with you doing your job and Donald Trump. Replied in kind. But it does make sense her her answer and her statements saying that, you know, maybe we should revise the way we would do to state of the union in it is the one day that every single branch of the US government is under the same roof. I mean does even television series about what would happen if there was a tragedy or an attack during that day and defacto that the shutdown is heavily impacting impacting security services dot concern had to be raised. It'll be reckless of her not raise that issue. In the unlikely event that something would happen. No one would ever forgive either Democrats or Pelosi for not having made that case. Absolutely. I think a lotta people misunderstand just how epic a security mission. This state of the union is Nancy Pelosi was making a valid point. And I'm not sure whether Donald Trump took it that way, it seems as though he's taken it as a sort of personal attack, which is I suppose going to surprise absolutely no one fail. What do you think? And talking about security was quite weird that Trump also reviewed an end spills was going to war zone enough ghanistan. I don't think there was supposed to review a dissolves again, very reckless. I mean, I know he was he was going to pursue attack against but you can't do that. Especially when you when you do things such as security as well. Yeah. But we're talking about the president that when he visited US troops over right before Christmas break or during the Christmas break that decided to post photos on social media to say, hey, look, I am hanging out with the troops. And actually revealing photos of some seal agents that even their families in the know if they were alive where they were. That's how secret of emission it is and they found out through Donald Trump's Twitter. So, you know, I think security concerns it's never at the top of his priority list. It's how can I make things personal? How can I weapons is a moment? And how can I make everything about me? One thing that I noticed about this. We're gonna take away Nancy Pelosi's plane, she's going to have ghanistan, by the way, close brackets is it I thought I'm not entirely sure that Donald Trump is bright. Enough to sink that particular trick up himself made me one the has. He got a getting like the bullies mate sitting there going, right? She's done this to us. Now. What can we do to get Nancy? Absolutely. He's naming Stephen Miller. He's got a gang of of to use a word that perhaps should have been retired.."
