GOP Senators Invite Trump to Deliver SOTU to US Senate — White House Looking at Options
On Thursday morning Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) invited President Trump to deliver the State of the Union Address to the US Senate.
Senator McConnell is in charge of the Senate. If Mrs. Pelosi refuses to allow the president to deliver the State of the Union in the House, I propose we move it to the Senate and make it happen!

This comes after Democrat Nancy Pelosi postponed the presidential speech in the US House.
On Thursday evening on FOX Business Network Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) followed Rand and invited President Trump to speak to the Senate.
According to CBS News the White House is mulling whether McConnell can invite Trump to deliver the SOTU to the Senate.
Top White House officials are discussing whether the GOP-controlled Senate could invite President Trump to deliver the State of the Union address. This, in the wake of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s suggestion Wednesday that the address be postponed or relegated to being done in writing due to the partial government shutdown, now in its 27th day.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s staff hasn’t responded yet to CBS News’ request for comment.
