House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said in a letter to President Donald Trump Monday that they have agreed on a State of the Union address date for February 5 – exactly a week after the original scheduled date.

See Pelosi’s letter to Trump below:

“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. In our conversation today, we agreed on February 5th. Therefore, I invite you to deliver your State of the Union address before a Joint Session of Congress on February 5, 2019 in the House Chamber.”

Trump responded later Monday by saying it is his “great honor to accept.” See his letter below:

Thank you for your letter inviting me to deliver the State of the union Address before a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, February 5, 2019. It is my great honor to accept. We have a great story to tell and yet, great goals to achieve!

I look forward to seeing you on the 5th.
