FULL STATE OF THE UNION: President Trump Addresses Nation from House Chamber (FNN) 4.5
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Monday invited President Trump to deliver the State of the Union address on February 5.

The invitation from Pelosi comes after a planned January 29 date to give the address was scuttled due to the partial government shutdown. That led to a contentious back-and-forth between Trump and the House speaker before the president announced a deal to reopen the government on January 25.

“When I wrote to you on January 23rd, I stated that we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when government has reopened to schedule this year’s State of the Union address," Pelosi said she wrote in her new invitation to Trump. "In our conversation today, we agreed on February 5th.”'

The path to Trump's first State of the Union in front of Democratic House of Representatives has been a rocky one.

Pelosi first extended an invite to the president just hours after lawmakers formally joined the new Congress, proposing a Jan. 29 date for the annual event which is held in the House Chamber. Trump publicly agreed to deliver the address on that date days later.

But on Jan. 16, Pelosi changed her mind, urging Trump to postpone the speech because of the partial government shutdown.

"Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after the 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 said in a letter to the president.

The speaker reinforced her plea to delay the event on Jan. 23, telling Trump in a letter that she would not allow him to address the nation in the House during the shutdown.

At first, it appeared Trump was going to opt for a Plan B, telling reporters "we'll do something in the alternative." But he later switched gears, announcing on Twitter that he would do the address when the shutdown is over.

"I'm not looking for an alternative venue for the SOTU Address 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!" Trump tweeted. #SOTU

From South Africa.
Trump is the greatest leader the Western civilization ever saw.
oh, and the Democrats think their antics will get them votes, never!!!
They are showing every American, and international viewer how rotten they are.
They dont even know they are playing into the hands of the Republicans.
50% of all Democrats will never again vote for them.
2020 will get Trump a majority never before seen in the history of the USA

It's clear to see the democrats especially the progressive far left care more about hating Trump than to help America.

"To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in their mother's womb. Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth – all children born and unborn are made in the holy image of God." President Trump, addressing Congress, February 05, 2019

As Mr. Trump uttered these words, along with talking about New York's recent law allowing 9-month old babies being born to be murdered, most Democrats stayed seated with expressions of disgust, while Republicans erupted with shouts of joy as they sprang to their feet and vigorously clapped.

Folks, this, among other issues is what clearly separates many conservatives from most liberals. For if you cheer the mass slaughter of not only pre-born little girls and boys, but those born yet abandoned to die, (as the Virginia governor has suggested) you have become the enemy of not just America and her most vulnerable citizens, but indeed the entire civilized world.

This man Trump is giving all this speech without looking on a piece of
paper prepared for him by someone. He is not using political jargon to
confuse the people.
He is raw, natural and to the points. Some Americans and crazy feminists
hate him without reason and no matter what he does. I was never
interested in politics but since this man came to the scene, I follow
and see the resistance against him. He was democratically elected, but
before he even took office, they have resisted him and fought him. But
still, with all these odds, this man has done a lot for America more
than at least, 3 Presidents before him. Obama just used articulated
political words without saying nothing. Trump uses straight forward
language of the people and he says a lot even when he says nothing.
America wake up. This man is your last hope.

One thing is certain the democrats are not for America so all those who support them cannot want to make America great again.

When the President talked about late term abortion, it wasn't hard to tell who the evil people in the room were. He just called them out for the world to see. These are the people who must not be re-elected.

How in the world could you not applaud what this man has done for America . Could you imagine if he didn't have to deal with constant opposition . When will the rest of the people stand with him . "He is not a politician . He is one of us ." Relish being an outsider because it's the outsider that changes the world
