Elder Patriot – President Trump notified House Speaker Nancy Pelosi earlier today that he has every intention of delivering the State of the Union address next Tuesday evening.
Pelosi had canceled the event citing security concerns due to the ongoing shutdown. That, of course, is a red herring.
There is no safer city in the entire world than Washington D.C. and there is no better protected person in the world than the POTUS. Than also means that anyone in vicinity of the president is in the safest zone anywhere on earth.
When notifying Madame “Let them eat cake” Pelosi, President Trump made it clear there would be “no security concerns” surrounding the event.
“I look forward to seeing you on the evening on January 29th in the Chamber of the House of Representatives. It would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!” Trump wrote in his letter to Pelosi…
Trump will deliver the State of the Union in one venue or another because the news for working Americans is something he can be proud of and that Americans who are bombarded by negative reporting about their president need to hear.
By her actions it would appear that Pelosi wants to deny President Trump the one platform she controls for a victory lap.
Trump could also use the SOTU to make the case that there is indeed a crisis on our southern border and that only enhanced border security can fix it.
Remember the polls immediately following last year’s SOTU:
