Trump to Deliver the State of the Union Address in the House, after Shut Down (after Nancy Un-invites Him).

Trump to Deliver the State of the Union Address in the House, after Shut Down (after Nancy Un-invites Him).

President Trump on Wednesday told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi he would be delivering the State of the Union address on January 29th in the House, as scheduled.

“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!” wrote Trump.

On January 3rd, Pelosi sent Trump a formal invitation to deliver his State of the Union address in the House Chamber. On January 16th, she sent a second letter urging him to postpone the speech based on security concerns related to the government shutdown.

In his response to Pelosi, Trump said the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security had both promised there would be no issues holding the event as planned (even though both agencies are operating without funding).

Later yesterday, Speaker Pelosi responded by “uninviting” Trump, stating “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.”

This has been an ongoing tit-for-tat. Naturally, President Trump had been expecting this response and has alternate plans already being prepared.

However, in a late breaking announcement, Trump has said he will wait until the shutdown is over.

Trump revoked Pelosi’s access to military aircraft, which effectively canceled her planned trips to Afghanistan and Brussels.

More than anything else, the drama over Trump’s upcoming speech is part of a personal war between the president and Pelosi – who is determined not to give Trump a single dollar for the border wall.

Last week, she refused to consider a proposal for border wall funding that included several concessions Democrats had long fought for – including protections for DACA recipients, a three-year guarantee for immigrants with Temporary Protected Status, and additional immigration judges.

“Unless the government is reopened, it’s highly unlikely the State of the Union is going to take place on the floor of the United States House of Representatives,” warned New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D).

Before Trump can speak in front of a joint session of Congress, a resolution will need to be approved by both chambers specifying the date and time of the event.

Pelosi could block Trump from speaking in the House if she refuses to hold a vote on the resolution.

Such a move would be “remarkably petty of the Speaker,” said White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

If Trump is prevented from speaking in the House, he is expected to deliver the address from the Oval Office, the Senate floor, or possibly even the US/Mexico border.

Trump has also spoken with lawmakers from Michigan and North Carolina who have offered to host the event.

Editor’s note: Because of extreme bias in the mainstream media, most people don’t realize that the Democrat reasoning for rejecting the wall has no basis in policy, it is strictly a political maneuver designed to hurt Trump. On the other side, Trump has real, logical, professionally certified reasoning in his quest for the wall.  We have said many times that security professionals respect walls as part of a basic security plan. Without a physical barrier, a security package is without a basic component.

The political reality is that without a wall, all border security becomes subject to the political whims of the funding committees in Congress, and can be removed easily. No way that is a good situation.

    If he gets the funds to bill the wall the Mexicans are going to raise the funds to built ladders tall enough to get over the wall. so Trump needs to just leave it alone it’s not going to stop them in getting to the US

      That’s just stupid; there will still be border patrol agents, and the illegals will easily be stopped, much easier than if there was no border wall.

      I wonder if people like this would be willing to remove the locks from their windows and doors, or with no windows or doors at all, and allow anyone to enter and leave their home at will, take anything they want, and do anything they want with their family members’ and property.

      Yea, let’s play with that for a minute… hmmm. How are they going to get their babies up the ladder? How many of them have the money for the ladder? Or is it another caravan that we wouldn’t see coming? Or their cars – how do they get that up the ladder? Maybe one does get up the ladder, but the other 99 that couldn’t work out the logistics of the ladder end up staying at home. Walls help. Walls help at a value far exceeding the 5.7 requested.

    All President Trump has to do is give a live SOTU address from the Oval Office. One week later furnish a verbatim transcript of the speech to Congress. This would allow our President the time to make his case to “We the People” AND satisfy the Constitutional requirement with respects to Congressional notification as to the “state of the nation”.

    Trump is the worst president ever, what planet are you on this guy has temper tantrums like a kid. When he can’t get his way, he goes on Twitter in the wee hours of the morning like an insane person. Someone needs to put a muzzle on his mouth, and take away his internet privileges. And Lord knows don’t give him access to push the button to start a war with North Korea. He is deranged, this guy does not realize the choices that he make has consequences that are devastating to fellow Americans. How is he making America great again? He does not have the power too. Only God Almighty and Jesus Christ have the power and ability to manifest any possibility of that ever happening.
    The Word of God, clearly states”If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray. Seek my face and turn from their wicked way, then I will hear from heaven and heal their land. (Until this nation repent and turn back to God we will continue to be a divided nation).The government rest upon his shoulder! GOD HAVE MERCY ON AMERICA

    With thinking like you present, Monica, it is the reason we have this serious mess in the first place and those Americans that voted for these evil idiots should not be allowed to vote. Study your history lesson, OK? You just may learn something! Let President Trump continue the massive cleaning that is still there to get rid of, it is this country job to accomplish this, believe it. The day is fast approaching, get real and you will sleep better.

    The state of the union is traditionally made in the House. One person should not be able to stop a Historical Event. As a retired Psychologist I would say that Nancy is the verge of a breakdown. She keeps sending mixed messages. It is sad The the most Greatest Democrat in the World is held hostage by one person and her Congressional Democrats. SHAME…

    Monica. That has to be one of the most ludicrous responses but unbelievably predictable for anyone who hates our President and probably our country. Maybe you should look around and see all the drugs that are so prevalent and killing people. Maybe you don’t care but any hard working American who loves the good ole US of A does.

    The only reason she’s saying no is to piss POTUS off! She’s acting like a spoiled toddler, selfish, not caring about anyone else’s opinion or feelings. I should know because I’ve worked with children my whole life.
    Monica, your reasoning is flawed. Barriers work, they stop or at least slow down those attempting to get past. Are you going to leave your front door wide open just because bad people are going to break in anyway? I don’t think so! Are you going to take these people into your home, knowing nothing about them? I assume not!

    President Trump will not back down when it comes to the safety of the American people, so Nancy stop being a shit head and give him the money for some type of security on the southern border. The majority of the people want this border wall so just give in and give it to him so he can get on with the State of the Union Address.

    Nancy Pelosi has some hidden agenda. She voted for the wall before this election didn’t she? Who is the Whistle Blower who is saying that she is connected to the Mexican Drug Cartel? He seem to know why she is against the wall. How much influence does the Mexican Drug Cartel have over people in our government? We sure need Pelosi and some other Democrats brought before The House Oversight Committee and let Trey Gowdy go after them. Hey Nancy, Why don’t you move to Mexico?
