Apparently the Emperor is no match for Speaker of the House.

"Trump says he won't give State of the Union during shutdown after being disinvited by Pelosi

President Donald Trump made a concession to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi late Thursday, agreeing to not give a State of the Union address until after the government shutdown standoff has ended.

"As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address. I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative - I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over," Trump said in a tweet Thursday.
"I am not looking for an ... alternative venue for the SOTU Address because there is no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber. I look forward to giving a 'great' State of the Union Address in the near future..."

Trump has never made a concession to anyone. He’s met his match with Pelosi. Love her or hate her she is one tough woman.

Yet the address will still happen and Nancy will still have to grin and bear it.

Raising 5 kids before getting into politics turned out to be helpful.

Absolutely! How many times have people posted that he was acting like a toddler?

I have to admit, I was hoping that he'd go to Raleigh to give his speech. The idea that he'd get to meet Reverend Barber & the Moral Majority was beyond funny.
