( - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) sent out at Tweet on Tuesday saying that President Donald Trump’s budget insults Americans who are struggling to get by when Trump and his friends are enjoying parties at Mar-A-Lago.

“The Trump Budget is an insult to the millions of Americans struggling to get by while Donald Trump & his cronies enjoy parties at Mar-A-Lago,” Pelosi said in the Tweet. “We should be doing more to serve our fellow Americans, not less.”
