Nancy Pelosi is at it again. Her Trump hate has reached a new level. Instead of taking the hint and working on the ending the govt shutdown she has decided to prevent the president from giving his address on the 29th by refusing him access to the House.
“Under Pelosi’s directive, a scheduled walkthrough last week for White House officials in preparation for the State of the Union was canceled.”
She wrote a letter expressing her position on the subject.
“Dear Mr. President,
When I extended an invitation on January 3rd to deliver The State of the Union address, it was on the mutually agreed upon date of January 29th. At that time, there was no thought that the government would still be shut down.
In my further correspondence of January 16th, I said we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when the government has re-opened and I hope that we can still do that.
I am writing to inform you that The House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union Address in the House Chamber until government has reopened.
Again I look forward to welcoming you to the House on a mutually agreeable date for this address when the government has been opened.”
This is clearly in retaliation for Trump stopping the Dems from going on their international (vacation) trip. As Pelosi and the Dems were upset that Trump was pushing them to do their jobs. Trump mentioned that they should not be touring the globe while over 800,000 Americans are not being paid.
“The president told reporters he was “not surprised” by Pelosi’s decision not to authorize his State of the Union address during the shutdown.
“It’s really a shame what’s happening with the Democrats. They’ve become radicalized,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
“They don’t want to see crime stopped, which we could very easily do on the southern border.
He added of the shutdown: “This will go on for a while.”
