JOE MANCHIN: Pelosi Taking ‘Wrong Approach’ on State of the Union Delay

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.16.19

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin rebuked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s recent calls to delay the President’s State of the Union Address until the federal government re-opens this week; calling her political maneuver the “wrong approach.”

Manchin was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked to comment on Pelosi’s insistence the Commander-in-Chief delay the speech or submit his comments in writing.

“I’m not sure what her intentions are – I have much respect for Speaker Pelosi – but I think this is a wrong approach to be taking,” Manchin said. “The approach by saying we’re going to shut this down … because of security — I think our staff, and I spoke to Capitol police, they’re still in and getting paid.”
