The Senator tweeted yesterday, “Senator McConnell is in charge of the Senate. If Mrs. Pelosi refuses to allow the president to deliver the State of the Union in the House, I propose we move it to the Senate and make it happen!”
On Wednesday, Pelosi sent a letter to President Trump suggesting he postpone the State of the Union address until the government shutdown is over due to security concerns.
“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless 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 the Congress on January 29th,” she wrote.
Despite the fact that both Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security stated they are well equipped and prepared to handle the State of the Union Address, Pelosi told reporters she “didn’t care.”
“I don’t care what they said,” said Pelosi when told by a reporter that Secret Service stated they were prepared to secure the Congressional event.
