Pelosi comments on Trump and State of the Union delay

Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood firm Thursday that there should be no State of the Union address during the shutdown while the White House is entertaining the idea of asking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to formally invite President Trump to give it in Senate chamber instead.  Pelosi argued that the January 29th date she originally invited Trump to address the nation wasn’t sacred, constitutionally demanded or even the president’s birthday. ‘The date of the State of Union is not a sacred date, it’s not constitutionally required, it’s not the president’s birthday. It’s not anything. It’s the date we agreed to. And it could be a week later if government is open,’ she said at a press conference in the U.S. Capitol building.
