Trump appears to snub Pelosi when she tried to shake his hand

Trump appears to snub Pelosi when she tried to shake his hand”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tore up President Donald Trump's SOTU speech after fuming through the well-applauded yearly address.

She was then seen visibly disagreeing with many of Trump's points during the speech, at some points mouthing "not true", or shaking her head no. Pelosi remained seated during most of the address.

After the president concluded his almost 90-minute address, Pelosi ripped up the paper copy of his speech she had in front of her with a pointed flourish.

As he ascended the podium, Trump handed a copy of his speech to Vice President Mike Pence and another to Pelosi, who extended her hand to the president.

The White House responded quickly, accusing Pelosi of disrespecting the Americans that Trump had praised during his State of the Union address.

In another testy moment, Pelosi also ignored the traditional introduction of the president as he walked into the chamber.

The speaker led House Democrats in impeaching Trump last month on charges he abused power and obstructed Congress in the Ukraine matter.

Minutes after the speech had concluded, and Pelosi had made a display of ripping it up, the House Speaker returned to the handshake.

Fred Guttenberg, a gun control activist and father of Parkland shooting victim Jaime Guttenberg, was "ejected" from the State of the Union speech after screaming at President Trump.
