Couldn't Trump just deliver the SOTU at a campaign rally? There's nothing requiring him to give it in Congress, is there?

If the above is true, then yes, I'd want Pelosi reassuring allies abroad that we as a country haven't jumped off the deep end, and that a presidential election is less than 22 months away.

SOTU at campaign rally wouldn't be the same show - obligatory network and radio coverage - guests (family of M-13 victims ) generals, Scotus, etc etc. and Pence and Pelosi as backdrop.

The oversees trip, not sure if that was the purpose, officially.
Could she convey that 22 month left message to NATO and allies without a trip. ? (please please not on a private server)


She could of course do it without going but an in person trip is more formal and serious than a phone call.

OK I had to look up exactly what happened.

After Donald Trump Blinks, Nancy Pelosi Pushes, POTUS Pivots
Quote:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed President Donald Trump via Twitter just before the dawn of Thursday and shortly after POTUS announced he would postpone SOTU and instead deliver “in the near future!” from the House chamber.

Pelosi, who controls the keys to that chamber, had said he would be invited back when the government re-opened; Trump previously punched back, saying she canceled SOTU because she did not want the country to know “the truth.”

“Mr. President, I hope by saying ‘near future’ you mean you will support the House-passed package to #EndTheShutdown that the Senate will vote on” Thursday, she tweeted. “Please accept this proposal so we can re-open government, repay our federal workers and then negotiate our differences.”

Instead of responding, Trump made a sharp pivot Thursday morning.

“A great new book just out, “Game of Thorns,” by Doug Wead, Presidential Historian and best selling author,” Trump tweeted. “The book covers the campaign of 2016, and what could be more exciting than that?”

“Game of Thorns” was published in February of 2017.


I respect Pelosi now more than I did before this. I think this incident gave Trump a glimpse of what the House represents - a diverse population of tens of millions of people that despise him. For Trump, that's like gazing into the abyss.

Think he had a sick burn in the chamber and just forgot when the senility kicked in? Or maybe he's just so used to the rhythm of the sick burn following referencing someone's name and he just went with the flow?

I wonder why not just cancel it altogether though. It's not necessary and the shutdown is plenty excuse to just say let's do it next year.

I’d like that, but presumably the point of the exercise is to change to stakes for Trump from things he doesn’t care about (whether the government functions) to something he does care about (being on tv), so you’ve got to leave that carrot out there.
