Trump backs down, will seek other venues for State of Union address

A spat between President Donald Trump and House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi ended in Trump deciding to look for alternative venues for his State of the Union speech on Jan. 29. She had refused to let him speak in the House until he reopens the government. Trump shot back: “The State of the Union has been canceled by Nancy Pelosi because she doesn’t want to hear the truth.”

    Trump backs down? Pelosi can block the customary House resolution that approves Trump speaking in the House. There is no Praetorian Guard to occupy Congress. Trump will likely hold it in the Senate and not a network will block the air time. The majority understand that the Democrats have slipped further into TDS and this hurts them as Pelosi will cave to the wall under vast pressure of pollsters and 2020 candidates.
