Pelosi Tweets Photo Showing Her Extending A Handshake To Trump, Who Ignores It
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tweeted a photo on Tuesday night showing that she tried to shake President Donald Trump’s hand at the State of the Union address — but the president rebuffed her offer.
The Hill noted that Pelosi said her handshake offer “illustrated the willingness of House Democrats to work with the White House on some issues.”
“Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship to get the job done #ForThePeople,” Pelosi tweeted following Trump’s speech. “We will work to find common ground where we can, but will stand our ground where we cannot.”
At the end of the president’s address, Pelosi tore her copy of the speech in half.
