UPDATE: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., asked President Donald Trump to delay his State of the Union address until the partial government shutdown ends. In a letter Wednesday, Pelosi also gave the president the option of delivering his annual report to lawmakers in writing. The speaker expressed concern that the government could not provide adequate security for the event during the partial shutdown, but other Democrats interpreted the move as political punishment for Trump’s refusal to approve a budget that does not include funding for a wall at the U.S.
