House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has fired back a letter to President Trump, in response to his letter earlier Wednesday informing her he is accepting her invitation to give the State of the Union address in the House – but Pelosi has now DENIED his acceptance and completely dis-invited him.

Pelosi had earlier withdrawn her invitation to President Trump, citing “security concerns” and told him he should deliver the letter in writing, due to the government shutdown.

The President wrote to Pelosi Wednesday, “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.”

Pelosi made it clear in in her response that the president is not welcome in the House to give his State of the Union address. Below is her letter sent to President Trump on Wednesday afternoon:

Dear Mr. President,

When I extended an invitation on January 3rd for you to deliver the State of the Union address, it was on the mutually agreed upon date, January 29th. At that time, there was no thought that the government would still be shut down.

In my further correspondence of January 16th, I said we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when government has re-opened and I hope that we can still do that.

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.

Again, I look forward to welcoming you to the House on a mutually agreeable date for this address when government has been opened.

Sincerely,
NANCY PELOSI
Speaker of the House

    Why in the world would President Trump go there…

    Make his SOTN SPEECH in the Senate house…and only allow senators to attend…..and no one else….
    Do not …not give the speech…Pelosi is an idiot and she deserves absolutely no response..PERIOD…..
    she has zero interest in resolving the border wall concern…it’s 100%political…she could care less about real American lives and our protection she is supposed to be protecting….

    He is her boss and should just go there if he wants and give it she cannot stop him . But better yet he just needs to give it with the Senate or even just in his own office . We are behind him and the evil Dems cannot stop us. We have your back President Trump . Stay strong and build that wall.

    Something is seriously wrong here, she does not have the Power and this witch is Dangerous as I have said all along.
    She has a plan and it’s against everything this country stands for.
    I’m afraid she is doing something to bring this President down, why was she taking all 93 members of her family out of the country last week?
    Something is very wrong here.

    Pelosi, your hatred of Trump is unprecedented. You must be removed from your position. You are anti-American. Just what is your goal? You have taken a stance against the President of the UNITED STATES and its citizens. I for one believe you should be held in contempt of Congress and jailed.

    She bit hook, line and sinker. Now Trump can give the SOTU anywhere and anyplace he can fit them all in. The Dems would have embarrassed themselves and America anyways. Go Trump!

    As if she’s the only one in control over there? Who the heck does she think she is? Last time I checked there were Republicans in the house too…this isn’t how government is supposed to function. Borders on treason!

    Any doubt in anyone’s mind that Pelosi doesn’t want to see things improve? Her actions say it all and no matter your party it’s wrong!
