Talking Points Memo reports:
The Trump campaign on Thursday issued a fundraising pitch centered on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) request to reschedule this year’s State of the Union speech until the government is reopened.
President Trump claimed in a campaign email sent to supporters that Democrats “illegitimately ‘disinvited’ me from making my scheduled and VERY important State of the Union Address.”
Pelosi has not gone as far as to disinvite the president, but suggested Wednesday that his speech scheduled for Jan. 29 be postponed due to the ongoing partial government shutdown. The Democratic leader has cited security concerns associated with the shutdown.
