The Trump-Pelosi feud: a compilation

Trump and Pelosi's already tense feud took another downturn at the State of the Union address. Here are some of the duo's "greatest hits."

“The most powerful House speaker in the last twenty-five years”

In February 2018, Pelosi sent a letter to Speaker Ryan accusing Republicans with having waged a "cover-up campaign" to protect Trump and cited last minute changes to the memo after a vote for its release as dangerous and violating House rules. She charged House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes with partaking in "deliberately dishonest actions" and called for his immediate removal from his position.

DREAM Act

In February 2018, Pelosi broke the record for longest speech in the House of Representatives when she spent more than eight hours recounting stories from DREAMers—individuals who were brought to the United States as minors by undocumented immigrants—to object to a budget deal which would raise spending caps without addressing the future of DACA recipients, which were at risk of deportation by the Trump administration.

2018–19 Government shutdown

At the start of the 116th Congress, Pelosi opposed President Trump's attempts to use the 2018–19 federal government shutdown (which she called a "hostage-taking" of civil servants) as leverage to build a substantial wall on the American border. Pelosi declined to allow Trump to give the State of the Union Address in the House of Representatives chamber while the shutdown was ongoing.

Impeachment of President Trump

Having successfully impeached President Trump on December 18, 2019, and on the eve of his trial before the U.S. Senate, the Washington Post political writer, Paul Kane, called her the most powerful House speaker in, at least, twenty-five years and noting that some historians were comparing her influence to that of former Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas.

SOTU

On February 4, 2020, at the conclusion of President Trump's State of the Union, Pelosi tore up her official copy of his speech. Her stated reason for doing so was "because it was a courteous thing to do considering the alternatives. It was a such a dirty speech." She was criticized for this by President Trump and Republicans.

    Nancy does not allow the pronouns, "mother and father," in Congress. Something is not right.

    Thank God we haven't has to listen to Trumps BS for over the last 100 days. Nancy is so much smarter than Trump and that is why he hates her or any woman that is intelligent.
