Pelosi says he has ripped Trump speech because he "bent the truth"
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had not planned to tear up President Donald Trump's speech on the state of the Union, but decided to do so because she was unable to find a page "that was untrue," she told Democratic lawmakers Wednesday.
Pelosi ripped a copy of Trump’s speech Tuesday night after the Republican president ended the tradition. She got a standing ovation from Democratic lawmakers at their caucus meeting on Wednesday, Democratic aides said.
"Last night, we saw the president of the United States throw the truth right in front of us. Walk the truth," Pelosi said, according to an aide who took notes at the closed-door gathering.
