President Donald Trump accepted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s invite to deliver the State of the Union address on February 4.
The president’s acceptance of Pelosi’s invitation comes just days after the historic House vote to impeach Trump.
“In the spirit of respecting our Constitution, I invite you to deliver your State of the Union address before a Joint Session of Congress on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 in the Chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.
Trump was charged with criminal abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, and is only the 3rd president in U.S. history to be impeached.
The GOP-controlled Senate will hold a trial in the new year to determine whether he should be removed from office.
