President Trump is fundraising off of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to disinvite him from delivering the annual State of the Union address during the government shutdown.

“Democrats have illegitimately ‘disinvited’ me from making my scheduled and VERY important State of the Union Address,” Mr. Trump told supporters in an email Thursday.

He said, “THE STATE OF THE UNION IS NOT FOR LIBERAL OBSTRUCTIONISTS, IT IS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!”

Mrs. Pelosi told the president in a letter this week that he should postpone the address scheduled for Jan. 29 due to “security concerns” at the Capitol during the partial shutdown.

Mr. Trump asked supporters, “What about the REAL security concerns at our Southern Border? What about the REAL security concerns of American Citizens and their loved ones?”



He said Democrats are afraid that he will use the speech to tell teh truth about illegal immigration and drug smuggling.

“The only reason Democrats and Nancy Pelosi want to ‘reschedule’ my State of the Union Address is because they know I will say what I’ve always said about our Southern Border….THE TRUTH,” he wrote. “It’s clear that Nancy Pelosi would rather ignore our American Constitution than allow me to speak directly to YOU.”

The email asserts that Democrats “are PANICKING at the thought of me speaking to you and your family in two short weeks.”

“The reason for all of this Liberal Hysteria is because they are finally being exposed for hiding the truth for DECADES,” the email stated.

It asks for contributions of at least $5 by midnight, with a goal of $1 million.
