US President Donald Trump is now to keep his State of the Nation  speech on 5 February before Congress – and one week later than originally planned. Nancy Pelosi, chair of the US House of Representatives, said Monday in Washington that she had reached an agreement with Trump on that date.

 

In a published letter to Trump, the frontwoman of the opposition Democrats formally invited the President to speak in the hall of the Chamber of Deputies on that day.

 

Previously, Pelosi and Trump had fiercely dispute over the date and location for the speech. The US President has traditionally given a speech on the state of the nation earlier this year. Originally this Tuesday was intended for.

 

Pelosi, however, had insisted on postponing the speech because of the government’s weeks-long stalemate, until after the end of this longest “shutdown” in US history.

 

After some back and forth Pelosi had finally made use of their house right and Trump refused the speech, as long as the “shutdown” lasted. Trump gave in at the end.

 

On Friday, the partial standstill of government business had come to an end. This cleared the way for a new date for the speech.
