UPDATE: Republicans like Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) say Trump should forge ahead, asking what, exactly, does Pelosi not want Americans to hear?

Actually, he answered the question for her.

ORIGINAL POST

Given that we are now in the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is requesting that President Trump delay his State of the Union address.

"Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to Congress on January 29th," Pelosi suggests.  

The shutdown is now in its 26th day. Neither Trump nor the Democrats will budge on border security. Trump said he'll settle for nothing less than a wall, but Democrats won't offer a penny for it.
