THE QUESTION IS:   It sounds like a song from the ’80’s by the Winans, but it’s a huge question on whether SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE Nancy Pelosi will allow The President to Speak in the House Chamber for an annual STATE OF THE UNION message.

Nancy Pelosi made the invitation to the President to give the State of the Union message, but since then the Government has been shutdown because of a disagreement between the President and the majority in the House of Representatives.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders:  “Nancy Pelosi made the invitation to the president on the State of the Union. He accepted.”  “At this point, we’re moving forward.”

White House Spokesman Hogan Gidley:  “She has not canceled it. She asked us to postpone it,” “but Nancy Pelosi does not dictate to the president when he will or will not have a conversation with the American people.”

The White House is continuing to work on contingency plans to give Trump a backup in case the joint-session plans fall through. The president cannot speak in front of a joint session of Congress without both chambers’ explicit permission.  A resolution needs to be agreed to by both chambers specifying the date and time for receiving an address from the president.
