Nancy Pelosi just ended her reign of terror over Trump’s important State of the Union address and re-invited him to come to deliver it in the House.
Nancy was roundly booed for canceling the event as it was viewed as a petty move. Surprisingly, Trump was not one of those critics, recognizing it is a good strategic move while understanding Pelosi is quite ruthless when she needs to be.
Trump likes the fight and it will be an interesting dynamic to watch the two as they try to govern this nation for the next two years.
Never forget that divided government can deliver amazing results – if both sides work together in good faith – so do not be surprised if these two find a way to make it work.
From The Hill:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a letter Monday said President Trump could give his annual State of the Union address in the House chamber on Feb. 5, shortly after lawmakers and the White House reached an agreement to end the partial government shutdown.
“When I wrote to you on January 23rd, I stated that we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when government has reopened to schedule this year’s State of the Union address,” Pelosi wrote in the letter.
She then extended an invitation to the president to give his speech on Feb. 5, a date she said the two had agreed upon.
The California Democrat previously retracted Trump’s invitation to come to the Capitol Tuesday, arguing the speech should not have been held until after the end of the partial government shutdown.
Trump agreed to sign a stop-gap measure to fund the government for three weeks as the House and Senate attempt to hash out a proposal to fund the Department of Homeland Security.
