Pelosi is Threatening to Cancel the SOTU for Political Reasons, Not Security Concerns

Nancy Pelosi threatened to cancel the State of the Union Address, which she had earlier invited Trump to give, due to alleged “concerns” that the government shutdown would hinder the Secret Service from protecting the President. But, as Marc Thiessen writes at the Washington Post, “Pelosi is using her faux security concerns as a pretext to do something unprecedented and outrageous: deny a president of the United States the opportunity to come to Congress and deliver his State of the Union address.”
The true motives behind Pelosi’s latest move is all too obvious and, Thiessen writes, “If Democrats continue with this cavalier attitude and refusal to negotiate, eventually public opinion will turn against them.”
