In recent days, President Donald Trump and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi have been in a heated exchange regarding the annual State of the Union address. Trump was initially scheduled to deliver his address on Tuesday, January 29th, but the 35-day government shutdown — the longest in U.S. history — resulted in Pelosi canceling the president’s appearance.
The shutdown, which came as a result of Democrats and Republicans failing to reach a consensus regarding border security — primarily the border wall, finally came to an end on January 25th after Trump reached a deal to reopen the government temporarily. A decision on the border wall has still not been made as of January 28th.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders recently updated the nation on the Trump, Pelosi debacle during a White House press briefing on Monday. This is the first briefing in 41 days. Previously, Trump said that he limited the briefings because of the mainstream media’s bias.
In her first briefing of 2019, Sanders told the public that Pelosi has not yet extended another invitation for Trump to speak. She shut down Democrats with her opinion on their debacle, revealing that she does not believe Pelosi “acted in good faith.”
“I certainly don’t think she acted in good faith on the front end considering she cited security concerns that didn’t exist, but we’re certainly hopeful that moving forward in the future that she will,” Sanders stated. “The president, as he always does, looks forward to addressing the American people and we’ll do that as soon as that invitation is received.”
