PELOSI TO TRUMP: Postpone State of the Union Until Government Re-Opens

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.16.19

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi urged President Trump to delay the annual State of the Union address or deliver his comments in writing this week; citing “security concerns” as thousands of federal workers go without pay throughout the capital and the country.

“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after the government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th,” wrote Pelosi.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
