(TNS) President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi do not have the best relationship, and it’s more than obvious why that is.
Pelosi and Democrats have spent the last three years obstructing the president and doing everything they can to half his policies.

But the feud picked up again recently after Trump declined an invitation from Pelosi to attend the annual Congressional St. Patrick’s Day lunch on Capitol Hill.
“Since the Speaker [of the House Nancy Pelosi] 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,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement.
The White House clearly did not mince their words and made it clear that the president isn’t going to rub shoulders with the people who have spent years going after him.
As noted by Breitbart:
The annual lunch on Capitol Hill takes place around St. Patrick’s Day in addition to a White House meeting with the Prime Minister of Ireland and a White House reception where the Taoiseach traditionally gives the president a bowl of shamrocks.
The Congressional luncheon is an ongoing tradition started by House Speaker Tip O’Neill in 1983, who invited President Ronald Reagan to Capitol Hill for the occasion.
But the relationship between Trump and Pelosi has deteriorated, particularly after she ripped up the president’s speech at his 2020 State of the Union address.
She also removed the words “high privilege” and “distinct honor” for the traditional introduction of the president at Congress at the beginning of his speech.
At last year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration, Pelosi needled Trump on immigration at the reception by pointedly quoting former President Ronald Reagan and O’Neill on the issue.

Just two weeks ago, Pelosi called for the president’s lawyers disbarred after defending him in the Senate impeachment trial.
“The President seems to be emulating a French king who said, ‘L’etat, c’est moi.’ ‘The state, it’s me.’ No. Article II does not say you can do whatever you want. The Constitution does not say that. But these, but these, I don’t know how they can retain their lawyer status in the comments that they are making,” she said.
Of course, the GOP-controlled Senate voted to acquit Trump on both articles of impeachment.
Pelosi has even accused Trump of being on drugs during his State of the Union address.
Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz also filed an ethics complaint against Pelosi, claiming she may have violated rules by tearing up an “official government document.”
Pelosi is nothing more than a far-left activist in lockstep with her party’s mission of removing Trump from office at all costs.

It’s not surprising at all that Trump does not want to spend the afternoon with her on Capitol Hill.
