Pelosi Asks Trump to Delay State of the Union Address – WSJ

Crafty lady.

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) asked President Trump on Wednesday to delay his State of the Union address to Congress until the government is reopened, citing security concerns.

It is custom for the speaker of the House to formally invite the president to give a State of the Union speech to a joint session of Congress at the beginning of the year. That address is scheduled for Jan. 29.

In a letter sent to the president, Mrs. Pelosi said such a speech requires the full resources of the U.S. Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security—two agencies where employees are currently working unpaid.

Immediate guess: Won’t happen. Speech delay, that is.
