President Trump said late Wednesday that he would deliver his State of the Union address after the ongoing partial government shutdown is over.
"As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address," Trump wrote in a tweet. "I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative - I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over."
Trump clarified earlier statements suggesting he may do an alternative State of the Union, writing that he was not seeking an alternative venue because "there is no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber."
"I look forward to giving a great State of the Union Address in the near future!" he added.
President Trump did not cave.. nor did he lose. He knows how to weigh the pros and cons better than anyone. He is the master negotiator and deal maker.. The Left is blinded by Hate.. They have no skill for anything productive. President Trump has Wisdom, Knowledge and TRUTH to light his way.
“He is the master negotiator and deal maker.. “
It just takes longer when the people you’re dealing with are insane Leftists.
Ping to 380.
Here come the RIFs!
In his first two years perhaps he could have negotiated and got more wall built. But Trump did not build a coalition for his wall. He is a CEO type and not a politician. The things that everyone loves about him (non-politician) can also be his weaknesses. It takes teams to win and Trump is a team of one and maybe a few more.
Now? Not happening. It comes down to votes. Trump just doesn’t have them.
He may as well issue an executive order if he wants something done on the wall.
GREAT rebuttal to the Gillette All men, especially White men, are scum.:
He makes it look like there’s nothing personal. He’s contrite. He looks like the adult in the room. And what has he given up?
Pelosi was likely hoping to use Trump fighting back against this as a distraction from the shutdown/wall funding. Now she can’t.
Or any other venue he could think of to transmit the Information.
The Constitution is pretty open about that.
I hope I never have to share a foxhole with you.
Presidents sent letters to the House and Senate where they were read aloud by clerks for at least a hundred years. That fulfilled the Constitutional requirement.
The kabuki theater of a Joint Session speech is pretty much a creation to take advantage of radio and TV.
“Trump just lost a large percentage of his supporters. Me included”
DAG! Who ya going with now buckeye?
AOC, Beto, Pocahantas or Kamala?
He has said he is building the wall while working on getting more funding. He can’t negotiate with people who do not want to negotiate. The national emergency approach is in the works. He said he will get it done.. one way or the other.. I have every reason to believe him.
That’s a new one for me. Hadn’t heard it before. Is the connotation something like” bull in a china shop?”
Trump caved. Pelosi will go on crowing.
Trump wussed out.
Let her crow. She digs her grave.
Brings a tear to the eye.
It really does.
