Nancy Pelosi was celebrating what she saw as her big win over President Donald Trump. The Speaker of the House invited, then disinvited Trump from delivering the State of the Union address. Now, Trump has just dropped a bomb on Pelosi’s celebration that she never saw coming. The president outsmarted the Speaker again, and you’ll love it.

Many conservative pundits were perplexed when the president seemed to back down to Nancy Pelosi’s ridiculous stance on canceling the State of the Union (SOTU) address.

The 78-year-old Speaker backed down from citing “security reasons” for the cancellation after she was caught lying about the Secret Service’s ability to “keep the president and VIP’s safe” at the event. In her latest and final letter to the president about canceling the SOTU, she cites no reason except the shutdown, which really doesn’t make sense.

“I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union address in the House chamber until government has opened,” the Speaker wrote in her letter to Trump.

Most Trump insiders were reporting the president would have the SOTU at an alternate venue. Then, late last night, they were shocked when Trump appeared to “give-in” to Pelosi’s wishes.

In two tweets, President Trump said, “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. 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!”

But, never fear. Trump had this planned all along, as you’ll see. 

Trump supporters were looking forward to the president really spelling out just why the government is shut down, who is to blame (the Democrats), and how they are determined to keep it going. That’s why Pelosi was so adamant the president not have an opportunity to expose the Democratic traitors in the SOTU.

Well, the president just played Pelosi like a fiddle. With his soft touch of appearing to “give-in” to the Speaker, he looks like a president who is up against a crazed woman. His demure tweets worked, and a new Fox News poll shows 75% of Americans see the shutdown as an emergency along with 59% who say the border situation is an emergency.

This is great news for the president, who may have to call the border a national emergency so he can fund the wall without Congress. That option is looking really good since the majority of Americans say the border and shutdown are major emergencies. And, that brings us the bomb Trump just dropped on Pelosi.

“Former Deputy Assistant to the president Sebastion Gorka revealed in an interview with Breitbart News Daily on Thursday that supporters should not be surprised if Trump ended up speaking to the country anyway,” Breitbart reports.

It might not be called the State of the Union, but there will be an address, from a very very interesting location, held very soon by the president,” Gorka said. This is brilliant. This means the president will give two speeches. The one next week will not be called the State of the Union, but with all the publicity, there is no doubt it will be just as grand.

Then, after the president gets the funding for the wall, he will return to the House Chamber triumphant and deliver the traditional State of the Union address, with all the pomp and circumstance. The government shutdown will be over and we will be breaking ground down on the Southern border, building the wall.

“My guess is we’ll be hearing and seeing more around his strategy of taking this fight to the people,” Matt Schlapp, Chairman of the American Conservative Union, said. “He should give a major speech that same day, it’s just not the State of the Union, let’s be candid.” weighed in on the new plan, tweeting, “TRUMP IS A GENIUS! Having his cake and eating it too … all while the desperate Dems watch! LOL!!!!!”

With almost 60% of Americans saying the border situation is an emergency, it sure looks like the president can declare a national emergency with Americans’ consent and bypass Pelosi and the Democrat rats. This also proves there are Democrats out there who also are in favor of a border wall. It’s just common sense.

The president sure played Pelosi. He forced her to show her stripes by canceling the SOTU for no known reason, and she is in hot water for refusing to even sit down to negotiate with Trump. The president can address the nation any time he wants, and Americans want to hear from the Commander-in-Chief.

Pelosi played her cards and lost because she doesn’t understand when it’s time to fold. She should have never let this shutdown go on this long, and in the end, President Trump will go down in history as the one who made sure our borders were safe and secure for generations to come.
