Trump Tells Pelosi He Will Deliver State Of The Union Speech As Planned

Update: Well that did not take long.

A few hours after President Trump told Speaker Pelosi he would accept her earlier invitation to deliver his SOTU speech in the House, daring the House Democratic leader to rescind her invitation, the Democrat leader responded angrily doing just that, and blocking the President from delivering his annual address next Tuesday:

Dear Mr. President:

When I extended an invitation on January 3″I 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.

Later on Wednesday, while he was speaking to reported in the White House, Trump was informed that Pelosi blocked his SOTU. His response was the following:

 “I’m not surprised. It’s really a shame, what’s happening with the Democrats—they’ve become radicalized. They don’t want to see crime stopped, which we could very easily do on the southern border. …

“This will go on for a while.”

The circus will indeed go for a while, although one wonders…

 

Earlier:

President Trump has rebuffed Speaker Pelosi’s politically-charged threat to delay his speech due to the shutdown, saying in a letter that he plans to deliver the State of the Union Address at the House chamber as planned on Tuesday as scheduled (accepting an invitation that Pelosi had sent earlier in the year).

Pelosi had suggested Trump consider delaying the speech if the shutdown continued, citing security concerns because Secret Service agents and Department of Homeland Security staff aren’t being paid during the shutdown.

However, both have reassured Trump that security will not be a problem and so he sent the following letter to the California Democrat:

Dear Madam Speaker:

Thank you for your letter of January 3, 2019, sent to me long after the Shutdown began, inviting me to address the Nation on January 29th as to the State of the Union.

As you know, I had already accepted your kind invitation, however, I then received another letter from you dated January 16, 2019, wherein you expressed concerns regarding security during the State of the Union Address due to the Shutdown. Even prior to asking, I was contacted by the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Secret Service to explain that there would be absolutely no problem regarding security with respect to the event. They have since confirmed this publicly.

Accordingly, there are no security concerns regarding the State of the Union Address. Therefore, I will be honoring your invitation, and fulfilling my Constitutional duty, to deliver important information to the people and Congress of the United States of America regarding the State of our Union.

I look forward to seeing you on the evening on January 29th in the Chamber of the House of Representatives. It would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!

So what will Nancy do next? Politico’s Jake Sherman notes that…

Or there are alternatives…

  1. We can’t use tax dollars for a wall to protect our children, but we can use tax dollars to fund baby murdering by planned parenthood. At least the liberal communist democrats are consistent. Maybe Nancy Pignosy and Chucky $hit for brains will tear down the walls around their yard and use drones, like they are asking the American people to do. One out of every ten democrats are just as ignorant as the other nine.

    1. If drones are the Democratic answer, what do they suggest that security should do with the drones? Are they suggesting that anyone trying to cross the border should be shot down by these drones? That would be the only way technology can stop illegals from coming OVER. Could you here the MSM if that happens?

    2. also tax dollars to pay for millions of illegals that are in this country pelosi tries to act like it’s Trumps fault but she is the one who doesn’t want Americans to hear the President’s address. you know why, bc she is afraid that supporters will actually listen and realize that peeee losi is a fraud. She doesn’t care about us and it’s a fact

    3. You are just one more sidestepping CATHOLIC TRAITOR. NO Catholic is an American. ..Vote for ANY “C” and you vote for the VATICAN , a foreign, hostile NATION that is the kiss of death for any nation it kisses.

    1. Dancing around the mulberry bush will get all AMERICANS killed……Hitler was of the same cult as everything south of the USA (CATH0L1C). Brown shirts of Hitler were the same cult. Now the Antifa (Catholic) cult is the same as Hitler’s Brown shirts. The methods have not changed in a thousand years. Be of that cult or be dead. look south of the USA for proof. R and D mean nothing to that cult. Vote for ANY of that cult and the borders will never be secured.

  2. Article II section 3 of the U.S. Constitution gives the president a requirement to deliver a state of the union report to congress, it also gives constitutional authority to convene either or both houses. To relay to congress and the people the national emergency that exist at our border and as the Constitution stipulates to expedient what measures he deems necessary to protect our country. Mr. President call both houses to session and give your state of the union address as has been done for decades. Demorats, get that flaky witch out of the house speaker position, she is ruining the your party. Quit being cowards!

        1. first requirement would be to hose off that head as it has been crammed in that place where the sun do not shine… also numbnuts has been watching the $luts on cnn and the view and listening to the likes of roberta dezero, that hollow woody hore house operator.. azzholes all want diversity(sic) unless you are a GOP then you can go straight to where mao naize and stalin are hanging out.. well their crapola is coming apart and it is so enjoyable as the democrapos break ranks with pe$lutsi..

  3. Pelosi has that nasty grin on her face all the time and she needs to be slapped upside the head and put in her place, who the hell voted her in, does she remember he is the POTUS it seems the American people do not matter anymore, we are just pawns in her game, he is working so hard coming up with solutions to protect the American people while 800,000 federal workers are not getting paid and she does not care, she should have her pay revoked, she has protection all over her home but we should not have protection, she says they will sit down and come to a conclusion once the government is open, who is she kidding, she will NEVER agree to anything Trump says and she thinks we are all idiots! TRUMP 2020!

  4. They don’t want a wall, they want to do what obozo did with the blacks burning cities, only they would shut all the security systems down so the illegals could cross. Remember when slick willy shut down the system to purchase guns. I believe the demon rats have the mark of the beast, they are anti Christian, lawless and most are atheists.

    1. Until 1956, when the CATHOLICS took control of the USA and got the ‘under
      god’ stuffed into the pledge of allegiance, the USA was non-religious. Until 1956, the USA was the most successful nation the earth has ever had.
      Since 1956, Welfare beyond compare, National debt beyond compare, jobless without compare, ILLEGAL ALIEN CATHOLIC ‘C’ invasion beyond compare. Just a bit of history.
      Vote for ANY “C” and the end result will be failure forever.
      NO religion is compatible with the Constitution of the USA.

      All ‘religious’ when putting the ‘religion’ above the Constitution are TRAITORS,.

  5. Way to go Donald, show they bitch you are the boss you run the country and she reports to the people and you
    She is just looking for 2020 brownie points.
    The dems are shooting themselves in the foot with her in charge

  6. David Rose, I am as outraged as you are and all American Citizens should be outraged at this Pelosi pissing game she is trying to win. You are so correct, none of the Democrats seem to have any common sense or brains! They are one stupid bunch!
    God help us if they ever come into power!
    You wonder who are the fools that voted for them! I know, the liberals, the illegals and the freeloaders! No one in their right mind would vote for such stupid and immature politicians!

    1. Pelosi is CATHOLIC……”Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the
      [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a
      terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and
      governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.” ~ Barry Goldwater

  7. Wait a minute! The latest is that President Trump has conceded and shall not deliver the SOTU until the government shutdown concludes. We are disgusted with that announcement.

    1. I think that about an address not bring given was another lie put out by the Communist DEMOCRATS. Pelosi seems to think she is the boss. She needs to realize that she is just a little cog in to the wheel. She got away with her stupid “big wheel”act with Obama because she buddied up to him and their agenda is the same: destroy AMERICA and become the DICTATOR. The Democrats and their media is always accusing PRESIDENT TRUMP of being back racist, dictator, or Hitler but THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE RACIST, DICTATORS, AND JUST LIKE HITLER. HITLER TOOK GUNS AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE, SPREADED HATE FOR THE JEWS, BECAME A DICTATOR, AND TRIED TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD. THIS IS THE AGENDA OF THE DEMOCRATS. THE DEMOCRATS ARE TRAITORS TO AMERICA.

      1. Pelosi IS CATHOLIC……CATHOLICS just do the same thing, and have for a thousand years.
        Infiltrate, invade, dominate, conquer, then eliminate. BE CATHOLIC “C” or be DEAD.
        Ryan is a “C” TRAITOR. Pelosi, McConnell , and a third of all elected are “C” traitors.
        R and D mean nothing to a “C” traitor. ALL CATHOLICS are TRAITORS.

  8. The Democrats have become the Nazi of America. The Media has become their propaganda machine. We must unite to uproot this evil or end up like the Jews of Germany! God help us.

    1. Hitler was CATHOLIC. Pelosi is CATHOLIC. Hitler was Nazi. ……CATHOLICS just do the same thing, and have for a thousand years.
      Infiltrate, invade, dominate, conquer, then eliminate. BE CATHOLIC “C” or be DEAD.
      Ryan is a “C” TRAITOR. Pelosi, McConnell , and a third of all elected are “C” traitors.
      R and D mean nothing to a “C” traitor. ALL CATHOLICS are TRAITORS.
      Vote for ANY Catholic and you vote for a traitor.

  9. Pelosi seems to forget the “house” is not hers, it belongs to the people. She gives herself and the dems a black eye! The Democractic Party sure is no longer Democratic or American but maybe that’s their intention. President Trump MAGA!

  10. HEY NANCE, I fancy you’d better STOP telling POTUS what he can and cannot do. In the meantime, YOU GIRL are on a collision course with a PINK SLIP. Your own demo brethren is slipping you hint after hint that they think it is time to work something out with The White House. Butttt, because YOU are so bent on showing up POTUS, you have lost what little recollection of RIGHT vs. WRONG that you had. GET A GRIP, PELOSI — you are fighting to keep your JOB …

  11. this is BULLSHIT the dumbacrats are trying to give our country away because thats the only ones that will vote for these assholes( illegals, BUILD THAT WALL WE THE TAX PAYERS YOU KNOW THE ONES THAT YOU,VE BEEN RIPPING OFF FOR YEARS WHILE WE PAY YOUR SALLARY FOR SITTING WITH YOUR HEADS UP YOUR ASS,S FOR YEARS. mr trump we the american tax payers want TERM LIMITS NOW.

  12. Nancy pelosi is a bully who thinks she is President. She just needs a new face lift.
    Poor thing has been having a bad face day.

  13. We just had 4 murders here in Nevada from an illegal alien. All older folks that haven’t angered anyone. Just easy targets for Pelosi’s new party members. This kind of guy could walk up to your front door today ! President Trump……..please put Pelosi in her place. Use the Constitution and the Courts against her. If she refuses to let you deliver a Constitutionally mandated function,,,,ARREST the bitch. And follow through on the case so she spends some time in jail with her constituency.

    1. A third of all elected now are Catholic, not AMERICANS. NO Catholic is an AMERICAN. Vote for ANY Catholic and you vote to keep the 60 million ILLEGAL ALIEN CATHOLIC INVADERS in the USA. Vote for ANY Catholic and you vote to destroy the USA. Look south of the USA for proof!

    1. Caesar was a CATHOLIC. Pelisi is CATHOLIC. They do the same thing and have for a thousand years.
      A third of all elected now are Catholic, not AMERICANS. NO Catholic is an AMERICAN. Vote for ANY Catholic and you vote to keep the 60 million ILLEGAL ALIEN CATHOLIC INVADERS in the USA. Vote for ANY Catholic and you vote to destroy the USA. Look south of the USA for proof!
