Pelosi invites Trump to hold State of the Union on February 5

Sharing is Caring!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has invited President Donald Trump to give the State of the Union address on Feb. 5, following a clash during the partial government shutdown that delayed the speech.

In a letter to Trump, the California Democrat said she and the president agreed to the date after they spoke on Monday. The annual remarks were originally scheduled for Tuesday, before Pelosi asked Trump on Jan. 16to delay them until the closure ended.

A week later, Trump told Pelosi that he would speak in the House chamber as planned. The House leader responded that her caucus would not approve the joint session of Congress needed for him to speak in the House chamber until the government was open. Trump then relented.

The president signed legislation into law Friday to reopen the government for three weeks, after a prolonged spat over his demand for $5.7 billion to build his proposed border wall. The measure does not include money for the barrier — which Democrats have flatly refused to approve.

A bipartisan, bicameral conference committee will try to hash out an agreement on border security. Trump has threatened to let government funding lapse again, or declare a national emergency to bypass Congress, if lawmakers do not reach a deal he likes.
