US President Trump cancels House Speaker's foreign tour citing shutdown
January 18 , 2019
US President Donald Trump has postponed the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Afghanistan and Brussels citing the shutdown. He has asked her to stay in order to negotiate and end the ongoing partial US government shutdown. The cancellation came a day after Mrs. Pelosi had asked President Trump to cancel the US Delegation's trip to Davos, Switzerland for attending the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) because of the partial government shutdown. The ongoing shutdown is the longest ever shutdown in the US history.
