Pelosi tears up State of the Union speech by Donald Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tore up her copy of State of the Union address delivered by US President Donald Trump on Tuesday, after sitting through an hour of the president’s address on topics ranging from immigration to economic growth.

Pelosi told reporters she ripped up the speech because “it was the courteous thing to do, considering the alternative.”

President Donald Trump had earlier ignored — or didn’t see — Nancy Pelosi’s attempt to shake his hand in an apparent snub that comes more than a month after House Democrats impeached Trump.
