Speaker Nancy Pelosi Having Fun Trashing Trump In Meetings Overseas With European Allies

Democratic House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi was visiting Brussels over the weekend and was present at the 2019 Munich Security Conference, where she met with leaders of our European allies. Some leaked details of her meetings with European leaders reveal that Speaker Pelosi has been putting Donald Trump in his place and asserting her own power.

Pelosi was mainly in the?European Union’s unofficial capital of Brussels to do damage control because Donald Trump has been undermining and ruining the United States’ relationship with NATO. Pelosi was asked why the House of representatives has not passed a resolution supporting NATO, to which she said,?”Because we just got the majority and then we can control, we can manage, what goes onto the floor.”

Speaker Pelosi commented on the Separation of Powers in the United States in a meeting with European leaders and made it clear that she knows she is at least equal to Donald Trump in terms of power. “We’re not a parliamentary government even though we’re parliamentarians,” Pelosi said at a press conference, “We have Article 1, the legislative branch, the first branch of government, coequal to the other branches, and we have asserted ourselves in that way.”

Pelosi then asserted dominance over Trump with a clever jab by pointing out that she has the power to deny him funding, which is exactly what she did in regards to his border wall.?Democratic Representative Gerry Connolly, who was part of Pelosi?s delegation, made a comment about Pelosi’s remarks, which prompted Pelosi’s clever remark.

“Is this a reassurance tour? I think it’s a reminder tour, that the United States government is not just one branch,? Connolly said. ?And as the speaker said, Article 1, the first article in the Constitution of the United States, deals with the powers of the legislative branch, not the executive branch, and those powers include war and peace and even direction of the armed forces.”

Pelosi then added to his statement, “And the power of the purse,” referring to the fact that Congress authorizes budget requests made by the president. That’s all Pelosi had to say to remind everyone in the room that she had defeated Trump over the entire border wall funding scandal.

Interesting to note too is that Speaker Pelosi has been sharing images of what she has been doing on her trip while meeting with our allies, and absent from many of her posts is Mike Pence or any other of the GOP officials that were part of the bipartisan delegation that went on the trip. Did Mike Pence not visit the 9/11 memorial that Speaker Pelosi did with European leaders? Why is he not in the photo below that Pelosi posted?

Looks like Pence was also absent from meetings with “allied leaders” that Representative Adam Schiff and Speaker Pelosi were present for. Pelosi knows that our European allies followed the entire border wall funding fight, which means they know that she is effectively more powerful than Trump at the moment.
