(KDRTV)- The battled between the Democrats and the Republicans have seemingly escalated as the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, February 4, night tore President Donald Trump`s speech into pieces
It started when President Trump walked into the chambers and ignored Pelosi`s gesture for a handshake
Pelosi who seated behind the president in the Speakers chambers could be seen frowning, smiling and in some scenarios shaking her head to differ with Trump`s speech.
Despite the strange gesture, the speaker remained quite until president Trump finished speaking and then tore the speech
Nancy Pelosi tore up President @realDonaldTrump 's speech on camera! Zero respect for our President.

However, Pelosi was unapologetic and told the press that that was the right thing to do
“It was the courteous thing to do considering other alternatives,” she said in a brief response to the journalist’s query.
In a tweet she later posted, Pelosi said that she would not allow lies to be told in the floor since she believed the President was lying about his achievements
“The manifesto of mistruths presented in page after page of the address tonight should be a call to action for everyone who expects truth from the President and policies worthy of his office and the American people,” she tweeted.
Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship to get the job done #ForThePeople. We will work to find common ground where we can, but will stand our ground where we cannot. #SOTU pic.twitter.com/ELJqR9q4xD
