Nancy Pelosi Invites Trump To Deliver State Of The Union Address

Newly elected Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has invited President Donald Trump to deliver a State of the Union address before Congress later this month.

Citing the constitutional mandate for a president to make such an address “from time to time,” Pelosi asked Trump on Thursday to deliver it on Jan. 29. 

Pelosi’s letter comes the same day her peers voted to give her the House speakership again, becoming the first politician in 58 years to take back the gavel. She was elected 220-192, with 12 Democrats voting for someone else and three voting simply “present.”

Several lawmakers boycotted Trump’s State of the Union speech last year, while others invited his political opponents as guests or wore black in solidarity with the Me Too movement.
