Rand Paul: Pelosi Postponing The SOTU Is An Affront To Americans, Trump Should Just Do It Before The Senate

Josh Israel reports at Think Progress:

In response to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) recommendation that President Donald Trump postpone his State of the Union speech until the government reopens, due to concerns about security, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) offered an alternate proposal: ignore the security concerns entirely and just hold the event in the Senate chamber.

Appearing on Fox & Friends on Thursday morning, Paul characterized Pelosi’s recommendation as a “real affront to the American people.”

“What I would suggest is, Senator McConnell is in charge of the Senate — let’s host it in the Senate. First time in history that the House would deny a president the forum of speaking. If she is going to do that, let’s hold it in the Senate,” he said.
