Trump Ignored Nancy Pelosi's Handshake Before She Tore His Speech by lampi: 3:20am On Feb 05
Washington(CNN) President Donald Trump ignored -- or didn't see -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's attempt to shake his hand before Tuesday's State of the Union address in an apparent snub that comes more than a month after House Democrats impeached Trump.

Immediately after Trump finished his speech, the California Democrat stood up behind him and ripped her copy of the speech in half before tossing it aside. A source close to Pelosi told CNN's Dana Bash that the speaker ripping up her copy of the speech was not planned and that Pelosi was angry at Trump's address.

While it remains unclear whether the President avoided Pelosi's handshake on purpose, tension between the White House and the California Democrat has heightened considerably in recent months after the House -- under Pelosi's leadership — investigated Trump's conduct regarding Ukraine. In December, House Democrats approved two articles of impeachment against Trump.

A Trump adviser told CNN's Jim Acosta that by apparently ignoring Pelosi the President missed an opportunity to heal a divided nation.

"The country seems very, very divided but I think Trump made a mistake not shaking her hand," the adviser said, while also faulting "the Democrats by being so silent and not clapping on even nonpartisan lines."

Following the speech, Pelosi tweeted, "Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship to get the job done #ForThePeople. We will work to find common ground where we can, but will stand our ground where we cannot."

Pelosi confirmed to CNN earlier Tuesday that she hasn't spoken to the President since the infamous White House Syria meeting in October, following which the White House released a picture of her standing up and pointing at him, which she immediately owned and placed prominently on her Twitter page.

"You mean where he circulated the picture of my saying 'All roads lead to Putin,' that one? Is that what we're talking about? ... We haven't spoken since then," Pelosi said.

The lack of communication between Trump and Pelosi is especially striking given the high-profile events that have taken place since that time, including the killing of top Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani and ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

On Sunday, Trump said he will likely have a difficult time working with Democrats after his expected acquittal in the five-month impeachment saga on Wednesday.

"I'd like to, but it's pretty hard when you think about it, because it's been -- I use the word witch hunt, I use the word hoax. I see the hatred. I see the -- they don't care about fairness, they don't care about lying," Trump told Fox News.

"You look at the lies, you look at the reports that were done that were so false. The level of hypocrisy. I'm not sure that they can do it, to be honest. I think they just want to win, and it doesn't matter how they win."

CNN's Meg Wagner and Manu Raju contributed to this report.

grin... I am so so so happy of the events that took place at the state of the union address today.. Nigerian time 3 a.m. Trump addressed the nation on the achievements of his administration in
1. Providing millions of jobs for blacks, Hispanics and women an all time record high
2. Best US economy EVER
3. Best military worldwide etc
4. Kept all election promises..
5. Signed back act to allow prayers in US public schools.

For Nancy Pelosi and Democrats, they are not happy with all the good things going on in the states.. GO TO HER CONSTITUENCY IN CALIFORNIA AND SEE HOW DIRTY THAT PLACE IS FULL OF HOMELESS PEOPLE...

And finally, the media have been highly ANTI-TRUMP especially CNN, MSNBC, ABC News etc.


Trump is the real man!!!!!!!!! And Most Americans LOVE him.. Former Democrats are beginning to join him... Democrats couldn't even conduct elections in Iowa..

Buhari cannot even address the nation

God Bless Donald J Trump

don't mind the asshole called trump.Trump has broken the record of most lies told by a human being in under 3 yrs. His supporters are bunch of illiterates and he is riding on Obamas success. He joined politics to enrich himself and give billionaires tax cut while the poor languish. Bernie 2020!!!!!!!


FYI this is the most corrupt US President in history. Trump University shut down over fraud, Trump Charities shut down over fraud, multiple sexual assault allegations, paid a porn star hush money, forcing millitary to use his foreign hotels, currently indicted by numerous courts on multiple charges that will run till after his presidency etc Almost all his associates are in jail including his personal lawyer. He will end up in jail at this rate.

Trump has his own personal grudge and issues also, but is that why Pelosi must be petty?!
Watching the video, it did not even look as if he saw her extending her hand, anyways........

Our view on Pelosi's action @MANNABBQGRILLS,

This is a New Low for Pelosi,

No matter how you feel or what you disagree with, remember others are watching.
This was unbecoming of someone at her level of office.
This speech was about American heroes and American workers.
She decided that was worth literally tearing apart. Absolutely disgraceful.
Many Americans will see it as classless and petty!



GogobiriLalas:
Even the blind can see that she was just pretending to extend her hand after he had already turned; besides, he didn't shake others.

Too many witches in the DemonCraftic party
@ the bolded,
Exactly our point!

That was obviously unintentional. He didn’t shake the first person, so he probably didn’t think the next person needed a hand shake so he turned away almost immediately .

The extremely bitter man refused a handshake initially.
You will get as good as you give.
It's rich of Trump to say people are lying when he is also the master of lies. They all deserve each other
