It surprises me that President Trump is telling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that he will be at the Capitol next Tuesday night to deliver the annual State of the Union address.
24/7 News Source reports that in a letter to Pelosi, Trump said he accepted Pelosi's original invitation and plans to fulfill that obligation. Pelosi recently asked Trump to postpone the speech until after the partial government shutdown is resolved. Trump's letter also plays down Pelosi's concerns about security as the shutdown drags on. Anyone have an idea on the strategy here?
I liked Senator Rand Paul’s idea that the President should give the speech at one of the U.S. Senate’s Buildings.
