Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said in a letter to President Trump that the House will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the president’s address in the House chamber until the government has opened, the Washington Post reports.
Pelosi’s response came shortly after President Trump said he would show up at the House for the prime-time speech on Tuesday.
Back at the White House, the New York Times reports Trump offered a quick retort, telling reporters: “I’m not surprised. It’s really a shame what’s happening with the Democrats. They’ve become radicalized.”
