President Donald Trump on Sunday finally offered a response to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s request he not give the State of the Union address if the government is shutdown but the fate of the speech is to be determined as the president merely said: ‘I’ll get back to you soon.’

The president tweeted his response to the speaker after he spent the morning criticizing Democrats for rejecting his deal to reopen the government and, in particular, went after Pelosi – including on the state of her district.

‘Nancy, I am still thinking about the State of the Union speech, there are so many options – including doing it as per your written offer (made during the Shutdown, security is no problem), and my written acceptance. While a contract is a contract, I’ll get back to you soon!,’ he wrote.

The White House has not formally responded to Pelosi’s request that Trump postpone his joint address to Congress until after the government reopens.

Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill tweeted a response to the president, noting they never received the White House acceptance on their original offer: ‘To be clear, the Speaker’s Office never received a “written acceptance” from the President.’

Pelosi originally sent an invitation to Trump on Jan. 3 – the day she became speaker – to give his State of the Union address on Jan. 29.

Sunday offered a teaser but no hint as to what Trump may ultimately do.

The White House is entertaining the idea of asking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to formally invite President Trump to give it in Senate chamber instead.

Earlier in the morning President Trump attacked Pelosi for being too ‘petrified’ of the liberals in her party to make a deal and said the city she represents – San Francisco, a bastion of liberalism – is dirty.

‘Nancy Pelosi has behaved so irrationally & has gone so far to the left that she has now officially become a Radical Democrat. She is so petrified of the “lefties” in her party that she has lost control…And by the way, clean up the streets in San Francisco, they are disgusting!,’ he wrote.

Trump outlined a plan to end the government shutdown on Saturday, offering congressional Democrats three years of legislative relief for 700,000 DACA recipients — including protection from deportation — and an extension of legal residence for people living in the country under ‘Temporary Protective Status’ designations.
