Today, I wrote to @realDonaldTrump recommending that we delay the State of the Union until after government re-opens, as the @SecretService, the lead federal agency for #SOTU security, faces its 26th day without funding. https://t.co/K2oL8WGvqo pic.twitter.com/g3fIlxDbbK

I don’t buy it. I think Pelosi just doesn’t want Trump calling her out while she has to sit behind him silently. It’ll KILL her inside. It’s either that, or this is her attempt at a power play. She’s trying to flex her muscles. Also, how pathetic is it that she’s essentially admitting that she’s not going to try to get her minions to agree to any sort of deal in the next two weeks?
DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen addressed Pelosi’s “concerns.”
The Department of Homeland Security and the US Secret Service are fully prepared to support and secure the State of the Union. We thank the Service for their mission focus and dedication and for all they do each day to secure our homeland.

How about that?
