In an abrupt change of heart, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced that the House of Representatives would invite President Donald Trump to give his State of the Union address.

Pelosi began a firestorm of controversy after she released a letter asking the president to postpone the State of the Union address while the government was partially shutdown.

The Speaker cited national security concerns for postponing the speech, which were immediately debunked by many experts including CNN’s Phil Mudd.

The president responded by canceling a trip planned by Pelosi and other Democratic lawmakers. After that, she formally said the House would not be inviting him to make his speech until after the government shutdown ended.

On Friday, Trump announced that they had reached a deal to fund the government for three weeks without funding for his border wall. Pelosi has apparently relented about the State of the Union because the shutdown ended.

In a letter posted to Twitter from the Speaker’s chief of staff Drew Hammill on Monday, she formally invited the president to give his address before Congress.

“When I wrote to you on January 23rd,” Pelosi wrote. “I stated that we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when government has reopened to schedule this year’s State of the Union address.”

The letter indicated that Pelosi and the president agreed to have him give the address on February 5, and she formally invited him to do so.

Trump accepted the invitation in a statement on Monday.

“It is my great honor to accept,” the president said in the statement. “We have a great story to tell and yet, great goals to achieve!”

President Trump has been hinting at the possibility of declaring a national emergency in order to use emergency powers to order the military to begin construction on his border wall without the approval of Congress.

    His reply was much more gracious than I could be towards her. Maybe someone told her how much her popularity dropped.

    Am I the only one who never knew the Speaker of the House had to “invite” the President to give the yearly SOTU?

    • Christine

      No, I wasn’t aware of that either.

        Probably because no former Speaker has had the narcisstic arrogance or rabid political venom sufficient to refuse or rescind an offer so the fact an offer is made had never been a news issue.

          You hit the nail squarely on the head,Lynda, and your choice of words is simply beautiful. In my words, i would have told OLD NASTY SMELLOSI to shove her invite up her very unappealing ass.

          You hit the nail right on the head,Lynda, and you said it like a lady. I would have told old nasty smellosi to shove her “invite” up her rotten ass.

      By long established rules, the President does not enter the chambers of the deliberating parties without a specific invitation.

        Don’t do it, TRUMP!!! It’s Pelosi’s INVITATION to your ASSASSINATION!! I wouldn’t trust that hag like DEATH HIMSELF!!

    • Bryant

      I didn’t know that either! I think he should give the SOTU speech somewhere else, dis-invite “pathetic” Pelosi and “sickening” Schumer! They will never show OUR President any respect, which he certainly deserves! We, the people elected Trump because we were sick of Obama and his total disrespect of our House of Representatives, our Laws, any and ALL Republicans! He started all this hateful rhetoric against Trump, then all the Democrats followed his lead!

      I was not aware of this either. Sounds crazy that a President cannot control when he speaks.

    Pelosi seems to think that she is in charge. I truly hope that, in time, President Trump will be able to convince her that she is not in charge. She’s just one of the corrupt, lying, politicians in Washington that has created so much hardship for the American people.

    Pelosi had to weigh the consequences of her refusal against what he will say in his SOTU address. Either way it will make the Dem Party look bad…

    This is not a shock to me. The Democrats pull is same shit every time they get a bone from the president. President Is constitutionally bound to give this speech. Me President, please give it, on time, from the Oval Office.

    President Trump was gracious and more importantly….he was showing respect for the Office of the Speaker of the House and as always,
    he put the People first and did the right thing for the people. His opposition has referred the President’s decision as “caving……….” doing the right thing is not caving, it’s choosing the right thing. The President is continually chastised for arrogance……this doesn’t equate……..clearly, concern for the United States and its citizens are first above all else, most certainly not his ego.

    Surprise surprise Hillary Pelosi, the wrinkle cream queen, has not only disrupted domestic America diplomacy but has now drastically disrupted American Russian foreign relationship that may cause world war. Get no wall Nancy out of office before its to late.

    Pelosi bluffed and Trump called, now she’s scared because of she blocks the SOTU after saying “not while we’re shut down” and the govt isn’t shut down, she’ll lose everything! Now, on 5 FEB, she’ll hear him saying everything she doesn’t want him to say.

    The president can use US Code: Citation 10 Sec. 284 and get the job done well enough, and he doesn’t need Mizz Nancy’s permission for that! He is just trying to get this done properly and instep with traditional SOTU address by time and location as, in the House Chamber as is usually done, but obstructionist Nancy thinks she’s running things and won’t let go! She IS NOT, WILL NOT and CAN NOT, so there!!! I think she is in need of some Frontal Lobe exercise, or REPAIR, either or both, makes no difference to us! Just get it done!

    I think the woman needs to get laid. Don’t know who would step up, maybe Schumer or an illegal. Like to know how her husband lost control. A real embarressment to men everywhere.
