The House speaker, #NancyPelosi
, has emerged as #Trump
's nemesis, the face of opposition to the president. This week she out-Trumped Trump, by effectively rescinding his invitation to deliver the State of the Union address. Pelosi was the first woman to become House speaker, from 2007 to 2011, and recently regained that position, putting her second in line to the presidency. Now the House is in Democratic hands and Pelosi - disciplined, shrewd, unflappable and steel-spined - threatens to expose Trump's lack of political experience.
More than a month later, the label ' #Trumpshutdown
' has clung more than any other. The president did not help himself by telling #ChuckSchumer
he would be 'proud to shut down the government' in the name of border security. As the stalemate continues, Pelosi seems to be winning in the court of public opinion. An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found Trump’s approval rating stands at 39% approve, 53% disapprove, a 7-point net change from December. Pelosi’s favorability rating, meanwhile, is up 13% among #Democrats
since the midterms (59% to 72%) in Civiqs polls, with virtually no shift among Republicans.
