Earlier this week, President Trump rejected an invitation made by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, refusing to attend the annual St. Patrick's Day lunch at the Capitol.
This really says something because this is the first time since 2003 that a sitting president has not attended the lunch. The last time a president missed it was back in 2003 when George W. Bush was in office.
You really can't blame President Trump for not wanting to attend though. After the mess that she just put him through with the impeachment trial, she should be ashamed of herself for even sending him an invitation.
At this point, we're all just waiting for her to be voted out of the House in November.
The White House issued the following response to Pelosi's invitation:
“Since the Speaker has chosen to tear this Nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric, the President will not participate in moments where she so often chooses to drive discord and disunity, and will instead celebrate the rich history and strong ties between the United States and Ireland at the White House on March 12. The relationship between our two countries has never been stronger, and the President looks forward to welcoming the Prime Minister of Ireland for the annual Shamrock Bowl presentation.”
According to The Daily Wire,
The annual Capitol luncheon began in 1983, when then-House Speaker Tip O’Neill (D-MA), a Democrat, had Republican President Ronald Reagan to the Capitol for the lunch. Presidents have missed the lunch only four times since then. The luncheon – formally called the Friends of Ireland Luncheon – is hosted by the Speaker of the House, who is Pelosi. It honors the taoiseach of Ireland, who travels to Washington, D.C., each year in a visit that culminates with the Irish leader giving the U.S. president a bowl of shamrocks.
Pelosi, never willing to not try and get the final word in issued this reply back, even though it was completely unnecessary:
“There has never been stronger support in the Congress and in the country for the U.S.-Ireland bilateral relationship. One would think that the White House could set petty, partisan politics aside for this historic occasion.”
This isn't a "historic occasion" it's a St. Patrick's Day lunch.
