President Donald Trump Sends Letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi – UPDATE: Pelosi Responds….

President Donald Trump sends a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi regarding concerns over the State of the Union and the temporary government shutdown.   UPDATE: Speaker Pelosi responds; revokes initial invitation; refuses to call for joint session.

Dear Madam Speaker:

Thank you for your letter of January 3, 2019, sent to me long after the Shutdown began, inviting me to address the Nation on January 29th as to the State of the Union. As you know, I had already accepted your kind invitation, however, I then received another letter from you dated January 16, 2019, wherein you expressed concerns regarding security during the State of the Union Address due to the Shutdown. Even prior to asking, I was contacted by the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Secret Service to explain that there would be absolutely no problem regarding security with respect to the event. They have since confirmed this publicly.

Accordingly, there are no security concerns regarding the State of the Union Address. Therefore, I will be honoring your invitation, and fulfilling my Constitutional duty, to deliver important information to the people and Congress of the United States of America regarding the State of our Union.

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!

Sincerely,

Donald J. Trump

    Here is my idea. Have it at Liberty University.. What with the attack on Christian
    Schools, can you see the optics SOTU at Christian University with people wearing
    MAGA HATS. Invite the Covington School kids along with Angel Moms
    and have Rev. Graham open the SOTU with a PRAYER.

      Nope, this address is for congress and the nation. Selecting a small Christian college would be a terrible idea and only provoke more than 1/2 the nation. That would be akin to the democrats choosing Key West or a demonic temple.

      This is NOT a religious ceremony, but a national ceremony, which already has religion injected, as is custom.

      Nor, should it be only for republicans, nor should MAGA attire be there. That is not unifying and it doesn’t represent ALL the PEOPLE.

          I tend to agree with you. Unfortunately, Mme Pelosi is willing to send the message to the American people that the government is entirely dysfunctional and simply not working. I don’t care for her unwillingness to even meet to discuss options, but that’s her call. PDJT has taken the high road, made some concessions and been on the job daily waiting. In the end I believe she loses, particularly since it is common knowledge that she extended the invitation post shut down and is now using it as an excuse to cancel the SOTU. She will lose – and cracks are starting to show she will lose, if not this fight her Speakership

      That rumor has been gaining momentum for ten days, and Schumer is widely “rumored” to be Hoyer’s co-conspirator.

      The party is very weary of Pelosi’s aberrant, attention-getting tantrums. Moderate Dems, a couple of whom have spoken-out against her antics, are threatening to submit a “motion to vacate the chair” and vote her out if she doesn’t cease and desist in her juvenile, failing, feud with the President. The negative optics she is creating with the SOTU flap may be the linchpin.

      My source is a patriot who sits in the House chamber. The Repub members are as gleeful as the Dems are disconcerted. It appears to be a question of whether the Dem leadership (sans Pelosi) and moderates thinks she is salvageable as SOH or out-of-control.

    I really want PT SOTU speech to be about how the Globalists are undermining America and Americans via hate, lies and the destruction of our freedoms, culture, Constitution and sovereignty.

    Make this about awakening Americans to their real future if they don’t take a stand now. Please don’t make this about the MSM and left attacking you. We know and can see that every day.

    The speech must be about the fate of America and Americans and what the real battle of Globalists vs Nationalists means?

    For example ask the left why are these bad?

    On the day of the speech, he should invite the media, walk up to the front doors of Congress and try to enter with a copy of the Constitution in hand.

    If he is denied access, he should then nail the Constitution to the front door of Congress and give his State of the Union on the front steps of Congress.

    If they choose a back bencher to give the response CnN look weak as leaders. Big guns failed and small guns are then used. A good response makes CnN look weaker. Another bad response and the country sees the whole dem party as completely out of touch with Americans.

    Their best option is to cancel the SOTU so the dems don’t have to respond.

    Pelosi got angry when she got BUSTED for the lie about security, and said she didn’t care what the Secret Service said.

    Now, she doesn’t even pretend to say her decision is about security.

    Pelosi’s play was NEVER about security. This last letter, especially when compared to the first, proves IN HER OWN WORDS that she is, in fact, a liar.

        GA man arrested for plotting attack on White House

        By Emileigh Forrester | January 16, 2019 at 5:05 PM CST – Updated January 18 at 6:00 AM
        ATLANTA, GA (WALB) – Federal prosecutors said Wednesday that investigators have arrested a Georgia man they believe planned to attack the White House.

        According to Byung J. “BJay” Pak, the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Georgia, federal agents believe Hasher Taheb, 21, of Cumming, planned to use explosives to attack the White House and other “targets of opportunity” in Washington.

        D.C. Federal prosecutors said in a news conference Wednesday that they believe Taheb planned to use an improvised explosive device in his attack.

        Taheb has been charged with attempting to damage by means of explosive any building owned or leased by the United States government.

        Investigators said there are no threats for North Georgia or for the Super Bowl in Atlanta, which is set to happen in a couple of weeks.

        Terrorism investigators said the investigation started after a tip from a community in Forsyth County.

        The Joint Terrorism Task Force said the investigation is ongoing.

      Now I know how Southerners must have felt in 1859-60.. It’s kind of like that rush you get after you just lassoed a wild horse..

    Have not read all this thread comments, yet. Dunno what PDJT will do. But as on previous Presidential thread, point out his nuclear option yet again.
    A2§3clause 3, on extraordinary Occaisions POTUS can command a joint session of Congress.
    All he has to to is invoke that constitutional clause based on ‘extraordinary’
    —-longest shutdown
    —-border crisis
    —-Pelosi SOTU breached contract intransigence.

      Citizen-thank you so VERY much for posting. I tried to get it out to as many places as I could. I know people here at the Treehouse could help spread this! It just works…as a way to wake people up–or shut some people up!

      I was super busy all last weekend…mailed 100 of these in postcard format ….and I didn’t just send to DC-most are in the same office bldgs. I sent to their regional offices! Think about the number of hands those postcards will touch. I concentrated on Democrats mainly in areas most affected by the shutdown. And I handwrote on back of each basically along lines – Families are going without paychecks, people are fighting about this. For less than one percent of the Annual U.S. Budget?….blah…blah. Remained ambiguous for the most part–and nice. Saying that when it came election time they would remember how they played and messed with peoples lives.

      I did send to a couple of my favorite Republicans…. including Dan Crenshaw, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert with nice notes thanking them for supporting President Trump.

      I just have a hunch that people seeing this…..will make a huge impact! I saw it last week and just Knew – this will only help!

      Thanks again!

    I hope President Trump hosts a beautiful, elegant and classy SOTU address. It will break a record for the most viewers all due to Nancy’s intransigence and theatrics.

    How is something shutdown when it’s still open. Is a bank shutdown when all lanes but one are open. Is a movie shutdown when all screens are open but one. Is a government shutdown when all three branches are open with all employees but one one group? I reject the use of the term shutdown. The President shutdown nothing. The Congress is the problem because the Democrats won’t play ball. To make their point they are even trying to “shutdown” the State of the Union.

    It is a conundrum.

    If the President yields and speaks elsewhere, Pelosi beats her chest and claims victory, is heralded by the resistance and msm, and very likely feels emboldened to be equally, or more, aggressive in dealing with the President in the future. Not a good outcome, IMO.

    If the President prevails and speaks in the House chamber, I expect he will be terribly disrespected by jeers/walkouts from the Dems on the floor and their confederates in the gallery. The media will take the opportunity to focus its reporting on the chaos instead of the President’s message. Not a good outcome, IMO.

    This is a top-tier, public, acrimonious power struggle, and the ill will already created compounds the existing dysfunction between the warring parties. The fault clearly belongs to Pelosi but hate often overrules reason, and she cares little about the divisive, negative impact on the nation. She and her leftist cohorts are vile, dangerous people.

    I’d say it is a good bet that Mr. Trump takes the office of POTUS very seriously, and will set a new and very appropriate tradition for the SOTU address.

    My evolved thoughts on the disinvitation:
    Pick a venue, perhaps Andrews FAB, invite Congress, Sotus, etc., also invite Angel mom’s, victims of illegals crimes, and lots of tax paying Americans.
    Do the SOU as a combo fact specific speech and power point presentation. Consult Joe Dan Gorman for optics and punch lines.
    Presto: Most memorable SOU in our nation’s history.

    Fox has just reported that POTUS has acquiesced, and will not hold the SOTU until the Federal Government has reopened.
