Will Trump Deliver His State Of The Union Address?

The White House announced Tuesday that it plans on moving forward with the State of the Union address, and is requesting information on security plans and costs not just from the United States Capitol, but from other, undisclosed locations outside Washington D.C.

Fox News reports that the White House “is still planning to move ahead with next week’s scheduled State of the Union address,” but that “details are up in the air” since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) rescinded her invitation to have the president deliver the speech to a joint session of Congress in the House of Representatives.

The president is tentatively scheduled to deliver the speech on January 29, but no official date has been set on the Congressional calendar — a resolution, passed through the House and Senate, is required to officially schedule the joint session.

But in a letter addressed the president, Pelosi declined to set a date for the speech, claiming that the partial government shutdown had reduced the Capitol police force and the Secret Service to a skeleton crew, making it impossible to guarantee the president’s safety and security — and the safety and security of so many legislators — during the ongoing impasse over the federal budget.

“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless the government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to Congress on January 29,” Pelosi said.

In response, the White House apparently moved ahead with plans for the State of the Union speech, regardless of Pelosi’s cooperation.

“Fox News has learned that the White House sent a letter to the House Sergeant at Arms asking to schedule a walk-through for next week’s planned address,” the outlet reported. “This comes after a previously scheduled walk-through last week was canceled at Pelosi’s request.”

An official with the White House says they are treating Pelosi’s letter almost as a negotiation tactic. “She invited us. We accepted,” the official told CNN. “She cited security concerns. (The Department of Homeland Security) responded to those. And we are moving forward.”

Trump also tweeted late Sunday that he’s “thinking” about the subject of where to hold his annual address. “Nancy, I am still thinking about the State of the Union speech, there are so many options – including doing it as per your written offer (made during the Shutdown, security is no problem), and my written acceptance. While a contract is a contract, I’ll get back to you soon!” he wrote on social media.

The White House added that it has a two track plan: on one hand, it could deliver the speech, as per tradition, in the House chambers. On the other hand, it could simply issue a “State of the Union” in writing directly to Congress and choose to hold the speech elsewhere. Right now, the plan seems to be to hold the speech somewhere outside of Washington, D.C., presumably at a rally or, even, perhaps, at the border.

CNN reports that Trump and Pelosi remain “at odds,” and that neither is likely to give in on the issue before next Tuesday — and neither plans on affording the other the victory of ending the government shutdown.

    I will watch our President deliver his State of the Union speech
    wherever he chooses to deliver it. Remembering the sarcastic
    Smirks from Nancy during the last one, it will be easier to watch
    if she isn’t present. 🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️

    I’m supporting PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump to hold the State of the Union Address wherever he can get the most viable reporters. I want it blasted all the way to Venezuela – to mess up the government there who are paying for much of the marches through South America. GO Mr. President!!!

    Pelosi doesn’t want Trump to do the speech either before or after the government is opened and Trump knows it. She’s just power hungry and will do anything to get her way.

    The President, in accordance with Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution, has the power, on extraordinary occasions to convene either or both Houses, in this instance, in order to deliver the SOTU.

    President Trump should never have given in to Pelosi on his state of the union speech. He could have spoke from the Oval Office. I also think Pelosi has too much authority when she is refusing the President to us congress for his speech. She does not own congress, the people do so it should be up to the people. We the people do not want Pelosi speaking for us.

If not what the hell did you gain ???? It was let out that they could be let go after so many days and we’ve pasted that, so that house had better have been cleaned !!!!

    Go find a rocking chair Nancy and while your at it, get two more for your two other practicing geriatrics: Feinstein and Waters. All of you are pathetic examples to ripoffs of our tax paying dollars and more hatred to our president than love for your country.

    The president can pretty much do what he chooses when it come to public speeches. This might be in great favor of the president to deliver his union speech at a rally.

    I wish that president trump would call for a special national vote, for the citizens of the country can vote whether or not the border wall should be built. since Nancy Pelosi and chuck schumer will not do the jobs they were elected to do , then we the people should do what they are not doing!

    I think Trump should close the House, you know we are in a shutdown and money is tight, lock the door and do not give Nasty Poorloosie the keys. Then invite all the Republican Congressmen and Senators to the White House for a special televised SOTU address.

    Mr. President, Your security should be no problem. I know of a few hundred thousand military vets that would be glad to help.
