Trump praises Karen Pence at National Prayer Breakfast

Trump praises Karen Pence at National Prayer Breakfast

Trump is the 12th president to speak at the annual breakfast.

In that vein, she blasted Trump for calling Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, a "political hack" after the Democrat announced his panel would begin broad investigations into the president and his personal finances.

Pelosi engaged in a half-hour interview with Politico on Wednesday, confidently predicting there would not be a shutdown, even as President Donald Trump continues to dig his heels in on demands for funding a wall at the southern border.

Pelosi also took aim at Trump's State of the Union address late Tuesday, where she was spotted sarcastically clapping at the president. Haugen said. "For our American family, I do sense that we are in a national moment of perilously mounting discouragement".

While we don't know whether she was intentionally trying to deliver such withering praise, the image of the Speaker clapping at the president, while wearing all white with an American flag hanging behind her, was a powerful one.

Measles Outbreak In NCR Declared By DOH
The DOH also reported 575 cases and nine deaths in Calabarzon, up from 21 cases and no deaths from January 1 to January 26, 2018. Since Jan. 1, there have been at least 55 deaths, mostly children below the age of 4 years old, the health department said.

Her look signaled agreement but had a decided edge.

Still no wall? Pelosi insisted there are a variety of issues she'd be willing to compromise with the president on - lowering prescription drug prices, protecting people with pre-existing conditions, and rebuilding infrastructure - except the border wall.

On the growing struggle for some religious foster care and adoption organizations, Trump said his administration "is working to ensure that faith-based adoption agencies are able to help vulnerable children find their forever families while following their deeply held beliefs".

A few minutes before, Trump had started talking before Pelosi could give him the traditional introduction, in which she would have said it was her "distinct honor and high privilege to present to you the President of the United States". "I hear people say, 'Why didn't they do it the first day?' You have to do it right". Twitter users were quick to turn it into a viral meme.

And the nuance of traditionally a laudatory action to signaling an entirely different sentiment. Trump did not elaborate more about the school, which received criticism for its anti-LGBT policies, but he did offer her a round of applause.
