Conway: Would Be 'Remarkably Petty' for Pelosi to Disinvite Trump From Delivering SOTU
UPDATE: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signaled to President Trump in a letter Wednesday that she will not allow him to deliver next week’s scheduled State of the Union address from the House floor.
“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 wrote in the letter to Trump.
Pelosi (D-Calif.) urged Trump to postpone the address last week, citing "security concerns" amid the ongoing partial government shutdown. However, she has not officially disinvited Trump from addressing the nation before a joint session of Congress.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday morning that Trump will address the American people on Tuesday, Jan. 29th, whether it's from the halls of Congress or another location.
On "Outnumbered Overtime" Wednesday, Conway noted that Trump sent a letter to Pelosi informing her that he still plans to deliver the address from the House floor.
"It would be, I think, remarkably petty of the Speaker to disinvite the president of United States to address the nation that they both serve at the highest level," Conway said.
She noted that first lady Melania Trump is inviting guests to attend Tuesday's speech, and said that if Pelosi wants to disinvite those people as well, "she's going to have some explaining to do."
Conway said Pelosi doesn't always have control of her temper when it comes to the president, and she also doesn't always have control of her chamber.
"The Democratic Party is so focused on 2020 that they're not focused -- as my boss is, the president of the United States -- on 2019."
