President Donald Trump’s second State of the Union address will not take place on Tuesday, an aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told CNN. The aide confirmed that the address, which was originally scheduled for Tuesday, will not happen — answering a key question about the address’s fate in the wake of the reopening of the federal government.
At a news conference Friday following Trump’s announcement that there was a deal to end the partial government shutdown, Pelosi said, “The State of the Union is not planned now.” The California Democrat added that discussions about the date of the address would take place after the shutdown — the longest in US history — officially ended.
The #QAnon nutbags are screaming that Pelosi is blocking the SOTU because RBG is secretly dead. For real.
Pelosi said @realDonaldTrump wasn’t invited to deliver SOTU because govt was shutdown. It’s open so Mancy has sent the invitation, right? Because surely Nancy wouldn’t lie. THAT would be immoral.
