Donald Trump admitted defeat in his high stakes battle with Speaker Nancy Pelosi over his invitation to deliver the State of the Union Address in the House Chamber after he publicly dared the Speaker to postpone the address and she quickly obliged. Numerous high ranking officials in the Administration admitted that Trump was convinced he had the upper hand and was certain Speaker Pelosi would never follow through on her threat to not allow the STOU during a government shutdown and was shocked when she officially uninvited him from giving the speech until after the shutdown is resolved.
