Rep. Jordan: Pelosi Urging SOTU Postponement Underscores That Democrats Are Focused on 'Stopping' Trump
Trump is scheduled to deliver his televised annual address to a Joint Session of Congress on Jan. 29, but Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested he put those plans on hold amid the partial government shutdown.
“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless the government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to Congress on January 29," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.
On "America's Newsroom" Wednesday, Jordan (R-Ohio) said this just underscores that Democrats are unwilling to negotiate or compromise with Trump.
"Until they start focusing on the country and not just on stopping the president, I don't know how you can reach an agreement with these folks," Jordan said. "Hopefully that's going to change."
He noted that some House Democrats have signaled that they would be open to compromise, including funding Trump's long-promised border barrier.
"This is the way we can finally get to a solution," Jordan said. "I applaud the president for standing tough. I think he's where the American people are. And I think more and more Democrats are going to see that."
