Democrat Speaker of the House has quickly responded to President Trump letter stating he intends to give his State of the Union address on January 29th when Pelosi invited him to be there. However, Pelosi seems to keep playing games and wrote back declining his invitation to give his speech.
Pelosi’s full letter below,
Dear Mr. President:
When I extended an invitation on January 3rd for you to deliver the State of the Union address, it was on the mutually agreed upon date, January 29th. At that time, there was no thought that the government would still be shut down.
In my further correspondence of January 16th, I said we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when government has re-opened and I hope that we can still do that.
I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until government has opened.
Again, I look forward to welcoming you to the House on a mutually agreeable date for this address when government has been opened.
Speaker of the House
President Trump and Nancy Pelosi are currently in a power struggle over the Government shutdown, but Pelosi may be making a miscalculation on her stance. Most Conservatives welcome a long Government shutdown due to the over bloated amount of workers we have within the Government. However, Democrat voters do not welcome the Government shut down since they view over bloated Government as an essential good. Also, most Government workers are Democrat voters and are only capable of turning against the Democrat party considering the mass majority are already fully opposed to the Republican party. Pelosi can only lose with her stance.
