字幕対訳

Day 26 now of the government shutdown.
And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now asking President Trump to postpone his State of the Union address.
The speaker writing, “Dear Mr. President. Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week,
I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date.”
The speaker insists this isn’t about politics but a matter of security
with the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security suffering from the shutdown.
Does Speaker Pelosi really have the power to disinvite the president from the State of the Union?
Yes. David. The Speaker of the House does have the power to block the president from delivering
the State of the Union address from the House chamber.
But he could deliver it elsewhere, possibly even from the Republican-controlled Senate.
And tonight, we’re told Republicans are weighing their options.
