Pelosi suggests Trump cancel his State of the Union speech due to the shutdown

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked President Trump to either reschedule his State of the Union address or hand-deliver his State of the Union remarks to Congress on paper because of the ongoing government shutdown.

“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress,” the California Democrat wrote in a letter to Trump.

Pelosi had previously invited the president to give his address Jan. 29, which Trump accepted.

Pelosi said the government shutdown has had an effect on the Department of Homeland Security and Secret Service, which are responsible for ensuring the safety of top government officials attending the event.
