Trump Vows to Deliver State of the Union from House Chamber
President Donald Trump insisted in a letter Wednesday he would deliver his annual State of the Union address from the chamber of the US House next week as planned, essentially daring the top Democrat to formally disinvite him from delivering the yearly message. Trump's letter, written with characteristic flourish, dismissed concerns raised by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about security during a partial government shutdown. It sets up a potential showdown with the Democratic speaker, who controls the chamber's proceedings and must allow for a vote on his speech.
