The state of the Union will not take place on Tuesday, says the Pelosi adviser



The adjutant confirmed that the address originally planned for Tuesday will not happen, and answers a key question about the fate of the address following the reopening of the federal government.

At a press conference on Friday after Trump's announcement that there was an agreement to end the partial government shutdown, Pelosi said, "The state of the Union is not planned." The Californian Democrat added that the address-date discussions would officially end after the closure, the longest in US history.

Trump's Director of Strategic Communications, Mercedes Schlapp, said on Monday that the White House had held talks with Pelosis office about a shift in address, and "we should have an answer soon."

In order to give an address, such as the state of the Union, to a joint session of Congress, both the House of Representatives and the Senate must pass an appropriate resolution, making Pelosis's voice an important part of the discussions.

Trump's speech on the state of the Union was initially faced with uncertainty this month when Pelosi told the president that the address should either not happen while the government is partially closed, or that he writes it in writing, indicating security concerns. Trump agreed last week to give the address after shutdown.
