We’ve had 45 presidencies in U.S. history, and this is the first time that an opposition party has been so petty that it would not invite the president to Congress to deliver the State of the Union address.
Perhaps this should be yet another wake up call for the American public. The hatred that the Democrats have for President Donald Trump in their minds is due to the fact that he represents the old America that was 90 percent White. The Democrats want to see all vestiges of that old world gone, and Trump “making America great again” after Obama did his best to wreck it, is demonstrating what a genius White businessman, elected mostly by White votes, can do. The Democrats never want to see a conservative White male president again.
Democrats like Pelosi, Schumer and Biden want America to have a non-White majority and the sooner that White people can no longer have any influence, the better. The rise of Trump is an obstacle and embarrassment to them, and they are doing their best to block everything he tries to do, especially if it’s immigration-related, like the wall.
The latest insult to Trump comes from Nancy Pelosi refusing to invite Trump to Congress to deliver the State of the Union address. Trump responded by canceling Pelosi’s needless and wasteful trip to Europe, Pakistan and Afghanistan on a 757 operated by the military.
The Constitution is a bit vague about where and how the State of the Union address is delivered, giving Trump an opportunity to improvise. There’s even speculation he might give the speech by the U.S. border. By not inviting Trump to Congress to give the speech, Pelosi is exposing herself as ridiculously petty, and she’s giving Trump, who is much, much smarter than she is, an opportunity to upstage and embarrass her. Trump will likely give the speech in front of the Senate and no one will even miss Pelosi.
A Fox News article reports “The White House is still planning to move ahead with next week’s scheduled State of the Union address, but the details remain up in the air after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi strongly urged the president to delay the speech or submit it in writing amid the government shutdown fight.”
“According to multiple sources, it remains unclear whether the address scheduled for Jan. 29 will in fact go forward, or what venue it would be in.”
“The White House is even planning for the possibility of a speech outside of Washington.”
“’We are still in a holding pattern,’ one senior source said.”
“But Fox News has learned that the White House sent a letter to the House Sergeant at Arms asking to schedule a walk-through for next week’s planned address. This comes after a previously scheduled walk-through last week was canceled at Pelosi’s request.”
“At the moment, President Trump intends to be at the Capitol next Tuesday to deliver his speech as scheduled, sources said. White House officials told Fox News they essentially are preparing for two tracks for next week’s speech. The preferred track is an address, as per custom, at the Capitol. The second track is a backup plan for a speech outside of Washington, D.C.”
One of the points Trump was probably going to mention in his State of the Union speech was how unreasonable and petty Nancy Pelosi was behaving, but she has just made that point for him.
A Border Wall along with increased border security is supported by a substantial majority of Americans despite all the liberal claims to the contrary. This is a losing issue for the Democrats, but Pelosi and Schumer are digging in their heels and doing a flip-flop on their earlier support for a wall or fence not that long ago (although it would probably be more accurate to say that Schumer and Pelosi were lying in the past about supporting a fence just to fool people into voting for them).
Trump has had a laser focus on the Border Wall for the last three months, and he’s going to hammer this issue relentlessly until every American with a TV set, radio or Internet connection knows that we desperately need a Border Wall, that the Democrats are holding up the wall and that he will have no choice but to declare an emergency to get the funding for the Border Wall.
