State Of The Union Back On: Date Fixed For Presidential Address

The president will conduct the State of the Union address on February 5, in the House Chamber.

The State of the Union address is back on, and will be held on February 5.

Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi invited President Donald Trump to the House Chamber to deliver the State of the Union address on February 5.

The move follows a contentious battle between the two over the past few weeks, and the president has promised that he “has a great story to tell.”

Pelosi originally invited the president to speak on January 29, but later reneged over ‘security claims’ and the federal government shutdown.

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

Although the DHS and Secret Service declared there were no security issues with the January date, Pelosi—in true hag-like behavior—refused to allow the president to speak, citing the shutdown, and revoking her earlier invitation.

President Trump then cancelled an expensive overseas trip planned by Pelosi and a number of prominent democrats as they were on the way to Andrews Airforce base.

The president took away her ammunition by agreeing to temporarily re-open the government for 21 days.

Pelosi wrote yesterday:

“When I wrote to you on January 23rd, I stated that we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when government has reopened to schedule this year’s State of the Union address,” Pelosi wrote in her new invitation to Trump. “In our conversation today, we agreed on February 5th.

“Therefore, I invite you to deliver your State of the Union address before a Joint Session of Congress on February 5, 2019 in the House Chamber.”

Shortly after receiving the invite, the president graciously accepted.

“Thank you for your letter inviting me to deliver the State of the Union Address before a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, February 5, 2019,” Trump wrote in reply. “It is my great honor to accept. We have a great story to tell and yet, great goals to achieve.

“I look forward to seeing you on the 5th.”

Pelosi later said her Monday conversation with the president “very pleasant.” Many people speculate that she has seen the poll numbers that show Americans’ disgust with her ‘direction’ for the country.

“We talked about things we can work together on, such as infrastructure,” she said.

Many people can’t wait to watch the speech.
