U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appears to pre-rip U.S. President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech, before completely tearing it at the end of the night.

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi had not planned to tear up President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech but decided to do so after she could not find a page "that didn't have a lie on it," she told fellow Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday.

Pelosi ripped a copy of Trump's speech on Tuesday night seconds after the Republican president finished delivering it.

She got a standing ovation from Democratic lawmakers at their caucus meeting on Wednesday, Democratic aides said.
