Sen. Rand Paul: Move the SOTU Address to the US Senate (VIDEO)

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sent a letter to President Donald Trump on Wednesday asking him to postpone the State of the Union Address to a Joint Session of Congress scheduled for January 29. Pelosi cited security concerns over the partial government shutdown.

Pelosi said both the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security have not been funded for 26 days now – with critical departments hamstrung by furloughs. Therefore, they would not be ready for the speech.

Pelosi posted her letter to Trump on Twitter, saying, “Today, I wrote to recommending that we delay the State of the Union until after government re-opens, as the , the lead federal agency for security, faces its 26th day without funding.” (Text version of letter below tweet.)

The Department of Homeland Security later refuted the Speaker’s claims — The Secret Service says it is ready for the SOTU Address

 

On Thursday morning Senator Rand Paul said said President Trump should move the State of the Union Address to the US Senate.

The FOX and Friends audience loved the idea!
