Scalise Sounds Off On Pelosi’s Suspicious Request

Steve Scalise is speaking out against a letter that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent to President Trump.

In the peculiar letter, Pelosi suggests that Trump reschedule an intended State of the Union address until after the government reopened or submit the speech to Congress in writing. 

Pelosi attempted to claim “security concerns” as the reason. She claimed that the ongoing shutdown had impaired the ability of both the U.S. Secret Service as well as the Department of Homeland Security, agencies which are typically responsible for maintaining security at such events.

However that excuse fell flat for Scalise, who is House Minority Whip.

He blasted Pelosi’s recommendation asking, “What are Democrats afraid of Americans hearing?”

“That 17,000+ criminals were caught last year at the border? 90% of heroin in the US comes across the southern border? Illegal border crossings dropped 90%+ in areas w/ a wall?” he said answering his own question.

Scalise closed by adding on his Twitter that, “This decision makes clear what we already know: Democrats are only interested in obstructing @realDonaldTrump, not governing.”

  1. It is SOOO obvious that Pelosi and Shumer are just being obstructionists to President Trump. They will ultimately be bitten in the a** over this. The Dims should be getting sick of their behavior by now.

  2. IT IS SAD TO THE DEMOCRATS REACT LIKE GROWN UP SCHOOL KIDS.
    WHY DOSE PELOSI HAVE A WALL AROUND HER HOUSE,
    ENEOUGH SAID

  3. Democrats don’t want Americans to hear the truth. The recent campaign to reach Americans is having an effect, even though Leftmedia is doing its best to silence the message. The duplicity of the Leftmedia is responsible for Trump’s outreach to Americans through social media. No wonder Democrats had attempted to create a kill switch for the Internet.

  4. President Trump has given them enough time to get their stuff together. They are only out to destroy him and our country. This won’t happen under President Trump’s watch. The democrats are responsible for our government shut down. Our President waited over the Christmas Holiday in the White House for them. He set up a luncheon and they did not attend. Nancy Pelosi and Chuk Schumer act like they are President and Vice President (HeavenHelp Us).

  5. Typical bullshit from the wrong. Yes, 90% of heroin comes across the border, BUT IT COMES THROUGH THE LEGAL CHECKPOINTS. A wall will not stop it.
    17000 PEOPLE were caught last year? That’s down 50% from 2012. Can they just not help themselves from lying?

  6. Is Pelosi afraid that one of the illegals she so wants to protect will do away with her at the State of the Union address? What right does she have to even make that suggestion? She must think she is the president and has that right!

  7. Mr. Scalise is correct.
    Pi is an embarrassment to America and to Congress.
    She is the cause of the shutdown. She is obstructing America.
    She is the soul of obstruction. Forget the Parks and stuff she is depriving the paying public of. She is compromising safety at airports.
    But all of that pales in comparison to what she is doing to OUR MILITARY. The men and women, and their families, who put their lives and wellbeing on the line 24/7 FOR US. In areas that Pelosi and Schumer call home, lower ranking military often are dependent upon FOOD STAMPS to feed their families even when they are fully paid on time. WHERE IS HER COMPASSION FOR OUR TROOPS?

    She bleeds for people that commit crimes in their homeland and bring their families to America where they CANNOT LEGALLY LIVE, WORK, or anything else. So, you cannot say they come for jobs as there are NONE THEY CAN HOLD LEGALLY. She advocates for breaking our laws, immigration laws, drug dealing laws, work laws, human trfficking, and many more.
    THE WOMAN IS A FARCE.
    Our troops will do their jobs whether they are paid or not as will the air traffic folks.
    While she parties in Hawaii. Her ilk party in Puerto Rico. And she shuts down OUR GOVERNMENT.
    NOW, SHE ASKS TO SHUT DOWN THE ANNUAL STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH.
    2020 cannot come soon enough to take out this trash.

    How about SHE SHUT UP and get herself and Congress to the NEGOTIATION TABLE.

  8. Don’t listen to anything this crypt keeper says or writes. She’s only out for herself. She needs to reap what she sows. At her age…..,she should know this by now. I’d say it’s past time for this low life to pay for crimes against the legal citizens of the US

  9. If the American people can’t see that the Democrats are the ones responsible for this
    shut down then they must be retarded. They don’t care about how many drugs, how
    many criminal gangs, terrorists, or criminal elements pour into this country. All of
    these lousy, phony hypocrites were for the wall until Trump promised he would see
    that the wall will be built.

  10. The Democrats are only interested in power. They do not care about Americans, only about illegal incriminates so they can vote Democrat. Its the law abiding Americans that are paying to support these illegals. We need to help our own citizens (unemployed, poor, homeless, and others Americans that need help) before we let illegals drain our tax dollars to help and support them

  11. Build that wall. Common sense. Not politics. Show people more waste of tax payers money compared to the small amount for the wall. People listen when it is their money. We spend so so much on illegal immigrants. Way more than the wall. We could use that money on our American citizens. Wake up Democrats. Some of your are just afraid of Pelosi. Do what is right in your heart.

    1. Estella you are 100% Correct, Nancy is just Playing a Game with the President and the American People, What’s it going to take for her to Secure the Border for the Safety and Well-being of ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS! She might just have to Lose one of her Loved Ones in Order to feel the PAIN the American Mother’s and Father’s do from Losing their Loved One!

  12. That’s what the Dems are good at….obstruction. How can they ever appease the millions of people who elected President Trump to build that wall…and many other things….and only to have them block each item? This is the most unjust action that could ever take place. We, the people already said our peace when he was elected. WE WANT THAT BORDER WALL!!! They talk about Trump having a temper tantrum. It is we, the people who should be doing it along with him. We have been cheated out of our say in this.

  13. Illegal immigrants should not be Allowed in our country at all!! Never given social security benefits. Did they work their entire life for these benigits? They do not deserve ANY FUNDS. They already receive more than any retired American that WORKED FOR IT. MANY get over 3,000.00 per month plus money for their children. Allowing immigrants entry is what the liberals want to get VOTES. ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLR!!!!

  14. How many past presidents were asked to submit their State of the Union Address to Congress???????
    Petty Pelosi has lost it — time to retire and relieve We The People her hate and stupidity.

  15. Petty Pelosi is way off base — and maybe off her rocker! How many past presidents were asked to postpone their State of the Union Address???? How many past presidents were asked to submit a written copy of their speech for Congress to approve???? What a nut!

  16. NOBODY has the right to stop POTUS from making his SOTU Address! Once again this traitor just wants to hurt Americans and the USA in favor of criminals and illegals! She HID FROM and had her staff LIE TO the families of victims of illegals! THAT tells me everything I need to know!

  17. Who is Pelosi? Pelosi the obstructionist and corrupt leader in the democrat party. Why she is so concern about President Trump State of the Union Address?

    1. Did is is a great name for you.
      The only threat to the Safety of the American People for the last 10 years has been the Democratic Party and the Lieing Liberal News Media. The Democratic Party under Ex President Barack Obama came very close to destroying America.

      Thank God for President Trump. MAGA AND RE-ELECT TRUMP IN 2020 AND ELECT NICKI HAYLEY IN 2024.

    2. Me McGee,
      You need to wake up to the fact that the border
      Is NOT the safest it has ever been. I worked in McAllen
      TX on the Border Patrol Station, the 1st night I was there
      A cartel member threw a GRENADE into a bar! How
      Safe is that? I hear Democratic senators and congressmen
      From WA & NY say there is no problem at the border.
      I call BS! Come down here and see what’s happening
      Up close and personal!

  18. Fed up with Pelosi and the Dems. She wants to reschedule the State of the Union because she’s afraid of not having enough security but the people living along the border is a different story. It’s an imaginary emergency and immoral to build a security barrier. Now there are 2-3 more caravans making there move to the US. Well Nancy you and all of Congress should not be getting paid while the government is shut down. You guys don’t even show up for work! Stop your paychecks and see how you like it. Oh wait you people don’t live from paycheck to paycheck. Stop acting like kids looking for revenge against Pres.Trump. Stop being afraid of your far left base.

  19. those LAWLESS COMMUNIST DEMORATS ARE THE MAJOR THREAT TO WE THE PEOPLE, OUR RIGHTS UNDER OUR BILLS OF RIGHTS, OUR REPUBLIC, OUR PRESIDENT.
    and they LOVE ILLEGALS AND MUSLIMS SCUM MORE THAN AMERICA AND AMERICANS.
    and i feel THEIR DAYS ARE NUMBERED WITHIN THE NEW TWO YEARS IF NOT SOONER.
    WE THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THEIR CRIMES AND TREASON AGAINST US.

      1. Did you only check the House votes and never saw that the Senate GOP gained seats? And for midterm elections, the GOP with President Trump lost a lot fewer seats in Congress than Clinton who lost 54 seats in Congress and 10 in the Senate during his first term and Obama who lost 63 Congressional seats and 6 Senate seats. Don’t really see any kind of “mandate” there…..

  20. Tell Nancy to take down her wall around her house! She said a wall is immoral, why does she have one, she should adopt some of the criminals that cross our borders, if she loves them so much!!!

  21. The people putting down our president are the ones that never voted him in, the Democrats hate him because he is for our country and the people.wish someone would show poloso the door to the highway out of Washington to her well protected estate. She is a blemish to our government. Hi

  22. DEMOCRATS ARE AFRAID THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL FIND OUT THE TRUTH BEHIND THEIR STONEWALLING …. THEY ARE COVERING UP THE REAL REASONS WHY THEY DON’T WANT THE WALL NOW COMPARED TO A FEW YEARS AGO .. TRUMP IS TOO CLOSE TO EXPOSING THE WHOLE TRUTH TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT THERE DISHONESTY DIRTY DEALS WITH THE ENEMIES OF OUR GREAT NATION
