Mika Brzezinski: Trump Just Backed Down And Folded to Pelosi Over SOTU Speech


MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said because President Donald Trump tweeted late Thursday night he will not do a State of the Union speech until the federal government reopens, he has been politically defeated by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

“To frame why the Senate chaplain is literally praying to end the shutdown, air trafficker controllers are working 60 hours a week without pay, FBI agents say they’re losing ground in terror investigations, prison guard shortages, food stamps in limbo, the TSA understaffed,” Brzezinski explained.

“With that as a backdrop, President Trump just backed down. He folded to Nancy Pelosi and in the proxy fight over the State of the Union. The president blinked first and the House Speaker just doubled down in a late-night tweet,” she added.
