House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced on Twitter Wednesday that he signed and submitted a resolution that would allow President Trump to deliver his State of the Union address from the Capitol on Tuesday.
According to Fox News, the document was a concurrent resolution that McCarthy submitted to the House floor. Both the House and Senate would have to adopt it in order for Trump to be allowed to address a joint session.
The video follows Trump sending a letter to Pelosi, letting her know he planned to ignore her request to move the SOTU to a different date. Pelosi responded by saying she wouldn’t authorize an address until the government is reopened.
Retweet if you agree that the State of the Union should proceed as planned. I just signed and submitted a resolution that would permit President Trump to deliver his #SOTU address in the Capitol on January 29th. pic.twitter.com/yPn152cIV9
