Trump's State of the Union address is still not happening Tuesday despite shutdown ending, Pelosi says

Despite President Donald Trump ending the government shutdown, his State of the Union address is still up in the air.

One thing is for sure, however: It's not going to take place on Tuesday as originally planned.

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

After a series of bitter letters back-and-forth, Pelosi postponed Trump's Jan. 29 address due to the longest shutdown in U.S. history , citing, among other things, security concerns as those tasked with the high-profile event were not being paid.

"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. .............

...........After Trump's announcement of the government reopening, Pelosi told reporters a date would be worked out for the president's address but for the time being, "the state of the union is not planned now."

"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.  ...........

I can't think of any politician more destructive to this country than Pelosi.

Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.
