Persuasion Expert Scott Adams Reveals Why Trump Is GENIUS For Postponing SOTU Address

On Wednesday night, President Trump decided to not force the issue anymore with the SOTU by deciding to postpone it until the Government shutdown has ended. Many people saw this as him “caving”, but persuasion expert Scott Adams reveals why it’s the perfect move for Trump.

Here’s what Trump tweeted last night:

“As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address. I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative – I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over. I am not looking for an alternative venue for the SOTU Address because there is no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber. I look forward to giving a “great” State of the Union Address in the near future!”, Trump tweeted.

As I mentioned above, many leftists on Twitter rejoiced. They claimed that “Pelosi won” because Trump conceded, but there’s more to the story.

Here’s the angle that Persuasion Expert Scott Adams sees:

“Pelosi abandoned the high ground. Trump just took it. Cost = zero. Whenever he does give the SOTU address, it will be ratings gold.” Adams tweeted.

In short, Trump is forcing Pelosi to make a move on the Government shutdown. Her ONLY option now is to re-open the Government with the exact deal that he wanted because he made the first concession.

Andrew Pollack from Breitbart also thought it was a tough, but strategic move:

“Wow. Unexpected.

1. This puts pressure on Pelosi to answer his compromise with one of her own
2.Trump acknowledges the separation of powers (something Obama did not)
3. The president shows a softer side, clearly addressing his key 2020 weakness.

Well played, and it cost him nothing”, Pollack tweeted.
