Nancy Pelosi has decided to cancel President Trump’s State of the Union speech using the ongoing government shutdown as an excuse.
This afternoon, I sent @realDonaldTrump a letter informing him that the House will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until government has opened. https://t.co/r1oad0xEAh pic.twitter.com/kGEbayx95u

Trump did an immigration round table today and addressed the issue in front of the press. He said that the Democrat Party has become dangerous for the country and he’s 100 percent right about that. It’s honestly hard to believe that Pelosi thinks this type of pettiness is going to go over well.
It would be funny if Trump showed up any way. He could turn it into a big spectacle and use it to attack the Democrats.
But no matter what happens, Trump has multiple options. He could do his speech in the Senate or an alternate venue. He said that announcement on this would be coming.
