Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship to get the job done #ForThePeople. We will work to find common ground where we can, but will stand our ground where we cannot. #SOTU pic.twitter.com/ELJqR9q4xD

As President #Trump finished his State of the Union address on Feb. 4, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up a copy of his speech. Asked immediately after the remarks why she tore up the transcript, #Pelosi told reporters it was “the courteous thing to do considering the alternative.” Pelosi later called Trump’s speech a “manifesto of mistruths.” The White House responded quickly, accusing Pelosi of disrespecting the Americans that Trump had praised during his address.
