SHOW TRANSCRIPT

After retracting President Trump's invitation to give the State of the Union address due to the government shutdown, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that despite a short-term deal to open the government, the speech has not yet been rescheduled.

At a press conference, Pelosi said in reference to the State of the Union that she looks forward to "welcoming the president to the House of Representatives when we mutually agree on that date." A spokesman for the House speaker told USA Today, "it's not happening on 1/29."

This news follows a public back and forth over the address between Pelosi and President Trump. 

On Wednesday, the speaker withdrew an invitation for the president to give the address at the House of Representatives due to the then-ongoing government shutdown. President Trump considered giving the address at a different location before agreeing to postpone until a deal had been reached to reopen the government.

According to USA Today, it's still unclear whether Pelosi and the Trump administration have discussed a new date for the annual address.
