"It's not happening on 1/29," said Drew Hammill, a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, cited by USA Today on Saturday.
Earlier Pelosi postponed Trump’s address due to the longest government shutdown in US history, citing security concerns, as those tasked with protecting the high-profile event were not being paid, in an official letter to the White House.
"I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until the government has opened," the letter read.
On Friday, Trump agreed to temporarily reopen the government until 15 February to focus on talks about a final deal on southern border security – the sticking point that had led to stopping the work of the federal government.
"What I said to the president is when the government is opened we will discuss a mutually agreeable date," Pelosi said, adding "I'll look forward to doing that" as well as welcoming Trump to the House Chamber when an agreement has been made.
Trump, who at first reportedly was looking for another venue, agreed to Pelosi’s terms to hold the address until after the end of the shutdown, noting that hosting the address somewhere else would have been "disrespectful."
"I could have got to a big auditorium and got 25,000 people in one day and you've been there many times, but I think that would be very disrespectful to the State of the Union, so what she said, I thought was actually reasonable," Trump said. "We'll have the State of the Union when the shutdown is over."
However, neither Pelosi nor the White House have indicated so far that there have been any discussions about another date for the annual address, which hosts all members of Congress, the president's cabinet and the Supreme Court justices.
