Trump Caves To Pelosi On State Of The Union Address

Newsweek reports:

The State of the Union address, the president’s annual speech, will not go ahead as planned on Jan. 29. President Donald Trump tweeted his decision to postpone the message late on Wednesday, hours after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi informed him that he would not be allowed to deliver the address to Congress until the government has reopened.

The president’s announcement is the latest development in a week-long exchange between Trump and Pelosi. Pelosi initially cited security concerns when she told the president on Jan. 16 that his address should be postponed or, if he preferred, delivered in writing.
