BREAKING: Trump Announces ‘Alternative’ Event After Pelosi Blocks State Of The Union

President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday, in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to block him from giving his State of the Union speech, that he will be holding an “alternative” event instead.

“So Nancy Pelosi, knowing these facts and knowing this is something that she can’t win, that she just went out and said ‘let’s cancel,’ for the first time in the history of our country, ‘let’s cancel the State of the Union address,’ and it’s a disgrace,” Trump said. “Just so you know, she uses on the basis of the shutdown, but when she asked me to make the address, formally in writing … when she asked me to make the address, she did it during the shutdown, well into the shutdown by a couple of weeks.”

“She also knew, because she went to our people and she asked ‘would it be a security problem?'” Trump continued. “She knew it wasn’t a security problem, she blamed security, but she knew it wasn’t a security problem.”

“I just got back from Iraq,” Trump added. “I was very safe in Iraq and I felt very safe. We had great, great security. If we can handle Iraq, we can handle the middle of Washington.”

“We’ll do something in the alternative, we’ll be talking to you about that at a later date,” Trump told reporters.

WATCH:

“The State of the Union speech has been cancelled by Nancy Pelosi because she doesn’t want to hear the truth,” Trump said. “She doesn’t want the American public to hear what’s going on.”

“I don’t believe it’s ever happened before,” Trump continued. “It’s always good to be part of history, but this is a very negative part of history. This is where people are afraid to open up and say what’s going on.”

WATCH:

Trump’s comments come after he sent the following letter to Pelosi:

Dear Madam Speaker:

Thank you for your letter of January 3, 2019, sent to me long after the Shutdown began, inviting me to address the Nation on January 29th as to the State of the Union. As you know, I had already accepted your kind invitation, however, I then received another letter from you dated January 16, 2019, wherein you expressed concerns regarding security during the State of the Union Address due to the Shutdown. Even prior to asking, I was contacted by the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Secret Service to explain that there would be absolutely no problem regarding security with respect to the event. They have since confirmed this publicly.

Accordingly, there are no security concerns regarding the State of the Union Address. Therefore, I will be honoring your invitation, and fulfilling my Constitutional duty, to deliver important information to the people and Congress of the United States of America regarding the State of our Union.

I look forward to seeing you on the evening on January 29th in the Chamber of the House of Representatives. It would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!

Sincerely,

Donald J. Trump

Pelosi responded with the following letter to Trump:

Dear Mr. President:

When I extended an invitation on January 3rd for you to deliver the State of the Union address, it was on the mutually agreed upon date, January 29th. At that time, there was no thought that the government would still be shut down.

In my further correspondence of January 16th, I said we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when government has re-opened and I hope that we can still do that.

I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until government has opened.

Again, I look forward to welcoming you to the House on a mutually agreeable date for this address when government has been opened.

Sincerely,

NANCY PELOSI

Speaker of the House

    THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE MUST REMEMBER THAT IT IS THE PEOPLES HOUSE NOT HERS & SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE THE POWER OVER OUR PRESIDENT TO REFUSE HIM WHAT EVERY PRESIDENT HAD BEFORE HIM & THAT IS TO GIVE HIS PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS FROM OUR HOUSE. The dummycrats can refuse to be there if they want but they do not own it. We do not need anymore of their antics of attacking our great president.

TRUMP should just go to the house and give the speech without her invitation…what is she going to do about it ??? they can’t lock him out or have him removed…tell Pelosi to stay home in her mansion with the big wall around it !!!

      Exactly right! How can Pelosi tell the President that he cannot give the address!? I say President Trump should still give the SOTU address but at a different location! A couple States have already invited him to give it there and he could give it in the Senate! He should not give in to this treasonous person!

    Scary though is that insane Alzheimic old crone is third in line to the Presidency. She is a power hungry, old hag, and wants her base to see her play hard ball. Too bad all she has done is show POTUS as the one trying to end the shut down. the entire Demorat side of the aisle is Progressive trash. Give the State of the Union in the Senate. No DNC invited. Don’t give the Press or the DNC a copy of speech. Let them go on camera afterward without talking point and yet again make total asses of themselves. Like fish flopping on a dock

    Hahaha…So Nancy Pelosi is the President of the United States! Just because she’s a tantrum, screaming woman she gets attention? I’m a woman, and those like her (and Maxine Waters) are ruining our reputation. Obviously it’s all part of the mentality to bring down America. It’s been going on for some time and is more noticeable with The election of President Trump. Here’s a unique observation that corresponds with what those who pay attention have noticed over the years leading up to the disrespectful violence now. Yoy cannot change communist thinking even though you make their economy better.

    MY president should deliver the State of the Union address on LIVE TELEVISION to the people of America. If it’s broadcast from the House Chamber, the Oval Office, or the restroom at Ming’s Chinese takeout doesn’t matter. WE THE PEOPLE have a right to hear our president, and to HELL with Pelosi, who has already proven herself a liar, and a traitor to America!
