House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that Democrats will not authorize President Donald Trump to give his State of the Union in the House chamber until the partial government shutdown ends.
The California Democrat's letter to Trump escalates a standoff over the annual address hours after the president said he would give the speech in the House chamber next week as planned. Earlier this month, Pelosi urged him to reschedule the speech during a partial government shutdown.

Far as I know, this has never in history been done before. What POSSIBLE reason can she give? The "security" reason has already been debunked.
Like Tucker Carlson said the other night on his show: Ms. Pelosi is not in full control of her faculties.
Democrats are lowlife scum, pure and simple.
Maybe her own party will tell her to step aside as she’s not doing her job. Yea right!!!
I can’t wait to hear what POTUS will say when he does give his speech next week be it from the Oval Office or on the floor of the Senate.
Look you stupid hag, we dont serve you. YOU serve us, the American people.
Listening to a caller to Rush a couple of days back, I’m pretty sure there’s a line in the Constitution that allows the President to call the Congress into session under certain circumstances. Not that the Donkeycrat leadership cares that much about what’s in the Constitution . . .
Sarah Sanders said they have a back up plan.
The POTUS is only required to give a State of the Union Report. Not a speech.
Frankly, doing away with the speeches would be a good thing. An opinion I’ve held since the early 90s.
Trump should just have the report printed and downloadable.
If I were the President I would give the State of the Union at the National Archives to small selective crowd. The Constitution and Bill of Rights as center pieces.
Nancy, you have no authority to block anything.
Trump will deliver his SOTU in spite of you.
He spoiled her Brussels junket, dissed her with her family and friends. She’s got important principles to uphold here.
Itd sure be fun watching the house sergeant at arms try and stop Trump, DHS, and SS.
My dream SOTU scenario is while Trump has all lawmakers in one place that its where mass arrests of corrupt lawmakers happen live before the nation.
LEMME DREAM AWAY
Nancy will now go down in history...in a way that she will live to regret.
Attempting to stop the President from speaking to the people?
For Pelosi and the Democrats, truth sounds like hate to those who hate truth.
Cancel Capitol Hills para military force
it’s her last hurrah
Give it in front of the border wall that bounds Nancy Pants’ house.
The poorly named “progressives” haven’t cares about what’s in the Constitution since the 19th century. The Democrats haven’t cares since FDR. Sadly the Republicans haven’t really really cared since Mr No Repeal Eisenhower.
This will end badly for Wile E. Pelosi.
He should deliver it at a mega-rally next to the border. Enough of this sh*t show in Congress.
