Trump declines to shake Pelosi’s hand; she tears up copy of his speech

A bitter feud between U.S. President Donald Trump and top Democrat Nancy Pelosi boiled over at his State of the Union speech on Tuesday (February 4), with Trump snubbing her outstretched hand and Pelosi ripping apart a copy of his remarks behind his back.

Trump avoided the subject of his impeachment drama in an 80-minute speech, but the scars from the battle were evident with fellow Republicans giving him standing ovations while rival Democrats for the most part remained seated.

The Republican-led Senate was expected to acquit him on Wednesday of charges he abused his powers and obstructed Congress.
