With the government shutdown continuing, Donald Trump has been forced into canceling the State Of The Union address planned for January 29th.
Nancy Pelosi, House Of Representatives Speaker, told Trump that he was not welcome to address the House during the shutdown. In a curt letter, Pelosi said:
“I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the president’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until government has opened.”
“The State of the Union speech has been canceled by Nancy Pelosi, because she doesn’t want to hear the truth. She doesn’t want the American public to hear what’s going on. And she’s afraid of the truth.”
“The American people want to hear the truth. They have to hear the truth.”
He went onto promise to do “something alternative”. The government shutdown in the US is nearing the end of its fifth week.
