Pelosi Frowns When Trump Calls to ‘Summon the Unity We Need to Deliver’
‘These are the people we are elected to serve’
One lawmaker looked displeased at President Trump’s call to set aside political differences and work toward America’s common good: Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
In fact, she seemed to be the only lawmaker in the entire chamber who did not rise. Even the senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, stood to applaud.
"In the aftermath of that terrible shooting we came together, not as Republicans or Democrats, but as representatives of the people," Trump said. "But it is not enough to come together only in times of tragedy."
When not visibly frowning, Pelosi instead appeared focused on cleaning something from her teeth.
"Tonight, I call on all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people," he continued. "This is really the key. These are the people we are elected to serve."
As every lawmaker int the chamber then rose to applaud the call for unity, Pelosi appeared to be the only one still sitting, visibly annoyed.
