On Wednesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to Trump about postponing the State of the Union until after the shutdown as the security would not be sufficient with the Secret Service and Homeland Security personnel furloughed.
In what can only be a direct, petty response, Trump uses the same language to postpone Pelosi's travel.
It's not an unreasonable request, that the Speaker of the House not leave Washington until after the shutdown is over, but that the White House didn't even apparently think about it until Pelosi seemingly (to them) took something away from Trump.
