On Wednesday, President Trump wrote a letter telling Nancy Pelosi that he is going to proceed with his State Of The Union Address whether she likes it or not. Pelosi had originally invited him to speak on January 3rd before “disinviting” him just a handful of days later.
In his letter, President Trump is going along with her first request, and the left is absolutely melting down.
“The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515
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!
Donald J. Trump”
Here’s how Rep Mark Meadows responded to the Presidents letter:
Speaker Pelosi invited President Trump to give the SOTU on 1/3, when the shutdown was 2 weeks in, and then tried to reverse her own invitation by making up a "security" excuse when both DHS and Secret Service say they're fully ready.
POTUS is exactly right. SOTU should proceed.
