2020 state of the union
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was left hanging on Tuesday night when President Trump ignored her offer of a handshake, and now, she's calling him out.
At the start of Trump's State of the Union address, Pelosi held out her hand to the president, but he did not reciprocate. Pelosi shrugged it off, but after the speech, which included digs against Democrats and former President Barack Obama, she calmly ripped up her copy of the address, later telling reporters, "I tore it up. I was trying to find one page with truth on it. I couldn't."
Pelosi didn't stop there, though. She turned to Trump's favorite social media platform, Twitter, and posted a photo showing Trump ignoring her attempt to shake his hand. "Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship to get the job done #ForThePeople," Pelosi tweeted. "We will work to find common ground where we can, but will stand our ground where we cannot." Catherine Garcia
