President Trump has sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and he defines the SOTU in detail.
Next week, the State of the Union address will be delivered by the president from the House floor unless there are unforeseen circumstances.
Trump explained, in his letter to Pelosi, that there are “no security concerns” surrounding the event.
This comes after Pelosi had sent Trump a letter that urged him to delay the speech because of the government shutdown.
Pelosi wrote, “Sadly, given the security concerns and unless the 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 Congress on January 29.”
Trump has a different perspective on the matter and he has put the ball, once again, in Pelosi’s court.
Trump wrote, “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!”
The House and Senate must still approve a resolution in accord to approving the use of the chamber for the State of the Union.
Madame Speaker, it seems to be your call.
It would be a shame to see the SOTU come to the American people in a written statement. The address has come to us as a televised event and the American people expect to see it.
Over time, as the message content changed, the focus of the State of the Union also changed.
In the 19th century, the annual message was both a lengthy administrative report on the various departments of the executive branch and a budget and economic message. After 1913, when Woodrow Wilson revived the practice of presenting the message to Congress in person, it became a platform for the President to rally support for his agenda.
Technological changes that have come into being, such as radio, television, and the Internet, further developed the State of the Union into a forum for the President to speak directly to the American people.
The White House is ready with a Plan B. They are preparing for two paths for next week’s speech.
On Wednesday, the letter to the California Democrat said that Trump would go forward with the address as planned.
The letter is here for you to see:
On Wednesday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to President Trump saying that she will not allow him to deliver next week’s scheduled State of the Union address from the House floor.
Pelosi wrote in the letter to Trump, “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.”
I believe that Pelosi will suffer consequences for this action.
