House Speaker Pelosi and Trump snub each other in the State of the Union Address!!

The tug of war between the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump has been going on for quite a sometime now. Both of them have accused each other directly and even on social media platforms. The fight reached a new height in the State of the Union address on Tuesday night. Firstly, President Trump ignored House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s handshake, where she clearly outstretched the hand at the top of his annual address. There was even a surprise expression on Nancy’s face after the handshake snub. To give it back, Nancy Pelosi tore a copy of Trump’s address at the end of his speech. Trump didn’t know about the incident as he faced the Congress members, and Pelosi tore the copy with all the camera glare on his back.

The handshake moment from Trump was still unclear whether he intentionally snubbed the most powerful woman in American politics or whether he did not notice her hand. However, after the speech, President Trump left the podium without shaking the hand of the speaker. Reporters were quick to get a statement from Pelosi on why she destroyed her copy of the speech. Nancy said that “it was the courteous thing to do,” while leaving the House chamber. However, the incident from Pelosi didn’t go well within the White House. Soon after Pelosi’s gesture, the White House responded a tweet calling the act as disrespectful to the guests honored in Trump’s speech.

Making her point clear, Pelosi later tweeted a picture of her extended her hand, and it looked like Trump intentionally ignored the handshake. She tweeted - “Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship to get the job done.” This is not the first time that Pelosi directly took a dig at President Trump. In response to a reporter who passionately asked whether she hated Trump in December, Pelosi replied that she didn’t hate anyone and also warned the reporter not to use such words with her. This is not the first time that Trump’s handshake denial became viral. In March 2017, President Trump appeared to ignore German Chancellor Angela Merker’s hand during a meeting in the Oval Office.
