The president will give it in the Senate, in such an event.December 16, 2018 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #1645741ZionGateParticipant
Not sure of the invitation protocol, but under the Constitution, the prez only has to report on the State of the Union.
He can write it or video record it, he doesn’t have to give a speech. Written as been done before.December 16, 2018 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm #16457471Participant

1, I thought you were smarter than that
A formal invitation is made by the Speaker of the House to the President several weeks before each State of the Union Address.
and it’s taken from
“Speaker Boehner Extends President Obama Formal Invitation to Deliver State of the Union Address”. Speaker Boehner’s Press Office (Press release). January 11, 2011.
“State of the Union 2015”. Speaker Boehner’s Press Office (Press release). December 19, 2014.January 8, 2019 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #1659101
Well that dashed my hopes
From Fox News’ website
Newly-sworn-in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., 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.January 8, 2019 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #1659112

Federal workers, contractors and those business that rely on them are losing right now. eventually government programs such as food stamps and rent subsidy, will run out of money and then it will effect a greater number of people mostly democrats.
As to the state of the union, you must realize that the democrats want to impeach him and some have called him names so I expect they will act in a disrespectful manner. But because the state of the union is televised it will be toned down.January 16, 2019 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm #1663641

From Fox News
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing a mounting backlash from Republicans for urging President Trump to delay his State of the Union address until after the partial government shutdown ends.
Pelosi, D-Calif., in a letter earlier Wednesday, suggested Trump either push back the scheduled Jan. 29 address or submit the speech in writing, citing security concerns amid the lapse in government funding.
But security officials have pushed back on her claim, claiming the teams are prepared. And Republican officials scoffed at the idea — though the decision ultimately rests with Pelosi
“It is unbecoming of a speaker to do this,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Wednesday.
Later, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., urged the president to press forward with the speech.
“For Nancy Pelosi to withdraw the offer shows insecurity on their part and that they can’t defend their open borders policy,” Scalise told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday. “The country deserves to hear from the president. … to think the speaker would lock the doors and prevent people from hearing from the president of the United States.”January 16, 2019 5:18 pm at 5:18 pm #1663651akupermaParticipant
Trump will win. He can give the speech anywhere (in fact, it is only a 20th century custom for it to be a speech). He can choose an audience that will be very supportive, rather than a Congress mos tof whose members hate him with a passion. Pelosi will win points with her base for “dissing” the President, but to most people it will seem that she is now the one shredding law and custom.January 16, 2019 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #1663680jackkParticipant
Trump has already lost . Pelosi did not do this for the fox news readers. She did it for the rest of America .
She just wanted to remind everyone that the Government being shutdown is not a normal situation and that Trump not trying to resolve it by passing bills to re-open the Government is a disaster.
She generated talk about the shutdown affecting people and Trump\Republicans are acting as if they couldn’t care less.January 16, 2019 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #1663685Abba_SParticipant
If Pelosi wants to dis-invite President Trump he should make the State of the Union speech on the steps of the capital just to show there is no security threat. Security will probably be very tight and I am sure that it will be well attended. Of course there will be an absence of democrats. It will basically be a kickoff for the 2020 presidential campaign speech, how the democrats are ruining the country in their first thirty days.January 16, 2019 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #16637261Participant

1 and coffee addict –
Trump and the Republicans were just trounced in the recent election. (Besides losing the popular vote 2 years ago.)
America elected the Democrats in congress to act logically and ethically against Trumo.
Pelosi as the Speaker of the House is doing exactly that. She has the support of most Americans who love what she is doing.
Stop listening to fox news and Hannity and Levin. Everything that comes out of their mouths makes a person dumber. Trump can say 2 weeks before the shutdown on national TV that he is taking responsibility and you still don’t blame him.
And I will repeat , I do not understand how the YW mods let 1 continue with his Onoas Devorim.January 17, 2019 1:14 pm at 1:14 pm #1663996
“Trump and the Republicans were just trounced in the recent election. (Besides losing the popular vote 2 years ago.)”
Trounced means gaining seats in the senate, when the blue wave turned into a puddle?
And you’re just showing how immature you are by bringing up the popular vote you still can’t get over it 2 years later
“Pelosi as the Speaker of the House is doing exactly that. She has the support of most Americans who love what she is doing.“
Stop listening to fox news and Hannity and Levin. Everything that comes out of their mouths makes a person dumber
So dumb that they watch CNN’s coverage of the Malaysian plane for weeks?
“Trump can say 2 weeks before the shutdown on national TV that he is taking responsibility and you still don’t blame him.“
I will give that to you, however Pelosi and Schumer don’t want to give an inch so why should he capitulateJanuary 17, 2019 3:36 pm at 3:36 pm #1664084
AbbaS are you claiming that the Jews living in Palmtree and Willy are Dems? Both those areas have the highest number of public benefit recipients in the country?
