Trump, Pelosi Agree to Feb. 5 State of the Union Address

President Donald Trump has accepted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to deliver the State of the Union address in the House chamber on Feb. 5.

During the 35-day government shutdown that ended Friday, Pelosi had rescinded a previous invitation to Trump to address the nation from the House chamber. However, she stated in a recent letter to the president that they had come to an agreement on the date for his speech.

“When I wrote to you on January 23rd, I stated that we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when government has reopened to schedule this year’s State of the Union address,” Pelosi’s letter read.
“In our conversation today, we agreed on February 5th.”

In a return letter to Pelosi, Trump thanked the speaker for the invitation.

“It is my great honor to accept,” the president wrote. “We have a great story to tell and yet, great goals to achieve.”
