President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address will not take place despite him ending the government shutdown, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
A spokesman for Pelosi said Saturday that the address would not happen on Tuesday as originally planned.
"It's not happening on 1/29," Drew Hammill said of the address, which hosts all members of Congress, the president's cabinet and Supreme Court justices.
In a letter to Trump on Wednesday, Pelosi informed the president that he would not be allowed to deliver his annual address until a partial government shutdown ended.
"I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the president’s State of the Union address in the House chamber until government has opened,” Pelosi said in her letter.
