Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham criticized both President Trump and Speaker Pelosi after the president postponed an official trip by a Democratic congressional delegation.

Pelosi previously urged Trump to postpone his State of the Union address originally scheduled for Jan. 29 on Capitol Hill.

White House officials told Fox News that all "CODEL" or Congressional Delegation travel on military aircraft is suspended while the government remains partially shut down.

Graham ripped the two leaders in a series of tweets, telling Trump that "one sophomoric response does not deserve another."

"Speaker Pelosi’s threat to cancel the State of the Union is very irresponsible and blatantly political," Graham added.

Just minutes before a delegation led by Pelosi was supposed to take off from Washington, Trump sent a letter to her office notifying her that he barred the use of Air Force aircraft for her purpose:

Pelosi Deputy Chief of Staff Drew Hammill blasted Trump in a series of tweets after he postponed the flight:

Fox News' Capitol Hill producer Chad Pergram told Shepard Smith that an Air Force bus made a short loop around the House Office Buildings on Independence Avenue before several members filed off -- apparently after hearing of Trump's maneuver.

House Financial Services Committee Member Stephen F. Lynch of Massachusetts was seen getting off the bus, as well as Reps. Mark Takano and Susan Davis of California.

Pergram said Pelosi was likely traveling to the jet separately for security reasons, as she is third in line in presidential succession -- behind Vice President Pence.

"One sophomoric response does not deserve another. Speaker Pelosi’s threat to cancel the State of the Union is very irresponsible and blatantly political," Graham tweeted.

"I wish our political leadership could find the same desire to work for common goals as those who serve our nation in uniform and other capacities," Graham also wrote.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California appeared to put the onus on Pelosi, telling reporters her decision to go abroad during a government shutdown was "inappropriate."

He said that Pelosi should "get in a room together" with Republicans to hash out a deal to reopen the government instead of planning overseas trips.
