On Thursday, the Trump administration admonished House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her scheduled trip abroad, including a stop in Afghanistan to assess the situation on-the-ground in light of the president’s decision to withdrawal US troops.

The president also prohibited Pelosi from taking government aircraft.

The delegation was going to fly commercial, citing the importance of the trip.

“The Congress has an institutional responsibility to conduct oversight in the war zone where our men and women in uniform are risking their lives every day,” wrote Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill.

Pelosi office noted that the State Department said Trump’s leaking of “sensitive” information had made it too dangerous for the congresswoman to travel abroad.

“In light of the grave threats caused by the President’s action, the delegation has decided to postpone the trip so as not to further endanger our troops and security personnel, or the other travelers on the flights,” the statement said.

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
