House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) still won’t allow President Trump to deliver his State of the Union address from the House Chamber even though he reopened the government.

“It’s not happening on 1/29,” said Drew Hammill, a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

President Trump was originally scheduled to give his SOTU speech from the House Chamber on Tuesday, but Pelosi refused to allow it citing security concerns due to the government shutdown.

“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 California Democrat wrote Wednesday in a letter to Trump.

The President ended the shutdown on Friday and agreed to reopen the government without border wall funding. Trump signed a short term continuing resolution to fund the Department of Homeland Security through February 15.

At a presser on Friday following Trump’s announcement to reopen the government, Pelosi said, “The State of the Union is not planned now.” The Speaker added that discussions about the date of the SOTU will take place after the shutdown officially ended.

“What I said to the president is when the government is opened we will discuss a mutually agreeable date,” Pelosi said, adding, “I’ll look forward to doing that” and welcoming Trump in the House chambers when that is done.

Pelosi’s aide confirmed to CNN on Monday that the SOTU that was originally scheduled for Jan 29 is still not happening.

Trump threatened to shut down the government again in three weeks if a deal is not made to build a border wall. President Trump added that he will use constitutional powers to build the wall if he has to.

It’s unclear whether Pelosi and the White House have since discussed another date for the annual address, which hosts all members of Congress, the president’s Cabinet and Supreme Court justices.

UPDATE: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invited President Trump to deliver the State of the Union address on February 5.

    How does this evil woman have the power to stop the President from giving his SOTU address? She would rather see our country fall into total disarray or anarchy rather than see President Trump do what is necessary to protect its citizens.

        If the POTUS wants to give a State of Address no one can stop him. I wish he would and call her bluff. So what if she and the swamp creatures do not show up. Everyone I know, no longer cares what the asses in the Congress think.

      That is the type of action Trump should take to this evil, vindictive stuttering, stammering idiot. I honestly think she is mentally deficient.
      She is acting like the Dictator she is proving herself to be from
      her irrational rhetoric and venomous HATE for Trump. Her beloved gavel should be retrieved and never be put in her hands again! She is EVIL!

    Pelosi – OPEN THE GOVERNMENT IF YOU WANT TO GIVE THE SOTU
    Trump – opens government
    Pelosi – NOW GIVE ME THE PRESIDENCY AND CALL ME EMPRESS AND GIVE ME YOUR MONEY AND YOUR FAMILY AND THE WORLD AND THE MOON! I AM YOUR GOD PEASANTS

    I’m not surprised, Trump needs to deliver the SOTU from the Senate, as he’s been invited to, or just exercise his Constitutional authority and call a Joint Session. Pelosi can bitch and moan all she wants, but she is not in charge!

      DOES SHE CONSIDER HERSELF A MOB BOSS NOW? THIS DESPICABLE, CONSCIENCELESS HYPOCRITE IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE PRESIDENT’S RESPECTFUL WAY OF DEALING WITH IMPOSSIBLE DEMONIC-RATS. THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES BELONG TO WE THE PEOPLE. IT IS OUR HOUSE, AND PELOSI SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT SHE WORKS FOR US.

  4. SMRSTRAUSS

    January 28, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    ALL that she said was that it would not happen on Jan. 29—not that it would not happen. HOWEVER, she has indicated that for it to happen at all, Trump has to REQUEST it—-and so far he hasn’t.

      January 28, 2019 at 8:54 pm

      I don’t blame him one bit!! She thinks she is flaunting her “popularity” and her power! People, take notice!! Nancy Pelosi and Chuckie Schummer(Sp) want us all to know thay expect American citizens to support the hordes Central American, uneducated, unskilled and unwilling to make their own country better so they can flaunt it in the faces of hard working, taxpaying American citizens. Remember this when you go to vote in ANY US election from now until 2020. All the progressives in this country want to make this a Socialist country like Cuba, Venezuela, Communist Chine, etc., etc.!! The Globalists will be glad to make your decisions for you and expect you to pay for their “pet ” projects while you’re at it–how about adding to the wall around Nancy’s huge estate in Communist California. Glad I will not be living long enough to see this great country turned into a 3rd world Caliphate.

    REALITY CHECK:
    Representative Pelosi, current Democratic Leader of the House, has chosen to throw her weight around…since she seems to perceive that she has more power than ANY President. She doesn’t.
    On the surface, this looks to be nothing more than a very childish…..temper tantrum, over the restriction of her foreign excursions (including family) which are…..Tax Payer Paid.

    The President, ANY President, can provide a SOTU Address…by any means the might be chosen.
    This speech, or other communique, is NOT required to be given on the floor of The House.

    One place, which is equally as appropriate, would be to provide the SOTU Address
    …………..DIRECTLY FROM THE PRESIDENT’s OVAL OFFICE.

    President Trump should completely ignore The Bitch Peelosi. He should set a new precedence and take the SOTU speech on tour. He could easily speak from coast-to-coast by having the first SOTU at the southern border with all of the druggies and illegals crawling under and over the border; show the dead illegals in the desolate areas; etc.

      If she showed up acting disrespectful or causing a commotion, it is a simple matter to call the Sergeant At Arms and have her removed. I believe it was yesterday, a Republican House Member was speaking & Pelosi did not like what he was saying. Rather than follow procedure & ask that the Gentleman from ____ yield his time, she actually got up & walked across the House floor to the GOP rep who was talking & stopped him. The news channel showed the clip 3-4 times.Technically, Speaker or not,the second highest ranking member of the House could have called the Sergeant At Arms & had her removed. Wouldn’t that have been fun to watch!

    What she fails to understand is the state house does not belong to her,it belongs to (WE THE PEOPLE)that voted President Trump into office,,,,time we the people stood up and demand that the democrats start doing what they were elected to do and that is to work with the President to better the people and the country..

    Pelosi is NOT President ! The fact BOTH political parties let her get away with this is not only pathetic, it’s pitiful ! President Trump is well aware many in BOTH political parties have joined forces to destroy him and America. They don’t want to govern, they want to rule. Pelosi is a perfect example of this.
    IMP Trump should give the SOTU address standing in front of a wall already constructed on our border. Show viewers illegals climbing over the wall, show videos of the thousands of invaders currently on their way to the land of free everything.
    Our elected officials in both parties know full well what is happening on our border, they are simply to corrupt and spineless to do anything about it. Are WE going to let them get away with it? We always have in the past.

    Pelosi is simply doing what she is paid to do by George Soros. He has had a hand in shaping her behavior for many years, and to refuse his demands is to risk anonymous corruption and bribery charges sent to the authorities. The same can be said about other democrats that are in his pocket. When you think about the illogical reasoning the Dems have displayed, think about what drives that behavior. What if they are being forced to behave that way simply because Soros wants it that way. He is the master anarchist.

    He should give it in the Senate. He could invite the Republicans, the Supreme Court, Heads of the Military and Law Enforcement. Invite the Democrats, but it is so small, there would not be room for them. Set up a large screen TV out side the chambers. Let them watch from there. That is exactly what I would do and said so since the very first of this food fight.
