Citing security concerns, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the president to delay his State of the Union address until the government shutdown is resolved.

“That letter requesting a walk-through as they plan to go ahead with that speech next Tuesday. This after how speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the president to delay the address because of government shutdown security concerns,” he said.
“The president is throwing down the gauntlet to the speaker,” he continued.
