Trump Concedes: State of the Union is Cancelled Because Pelosi is ‘Afraid of the Truth’


Hours after insisting in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) that he planned to deliver the State of the Union address in the House chamber as per tradition, President Donald Trump has totally capitulated — announcing that the speech has been canceled.

The president broke the news during a White House pool spray on Wednesday.

“The state of the union speech has been canceled by Nancy Pelosi because she doesn’t want to hear the truth,” Trump said. “She doesn’t want the American public to hear what’s going on. And she’s afraid of the truth.”

Shortly after receiving Trump’s letter, Pelosi replied that by saying that the House will not open their chamber to the president on Jan. 29. Trump blamed the “super-left Democrats” for the speaker’s position on the topic.

“I hope they know what they’re doing for their party,” Trump said. “So far they haven’t.”

The president believes Pelosi’s maneuver will leave a permanent stain on the nation.

“Nancy Pelosi, or ‘Nancy,’ as I call her, she doesn’t want to hear the truth, and she doesn’t want — more importantly — [for] the American people to hear the truth,” Trump said. “We just found out that she’s cancelled it. And I think that’s a great blotch on the incredible country that we all love. It’s a great, great, horrible mark. I don’t believe it’s ever happened before. And it’s always good to be part of history. But this is a negative part of history. This is where people are afraid to open up and say what’s going on. So it’s a very, very negative part of history.”
