BORDER/NANCY PELOSI/SENATE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “President Donald Trump is looking at his options. After being disinvited from giving his State of the Union address in the House chamber, Trump is scouting for a new venue to give the annual address. While the president had been planning to speak in the House – as is customary – his fight over funding for a border wall and the ongoing partial government shutdown led to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi revoking his invitation to address the nation on Tuesday…Pelosi had previously cited possible security concerns because authorities who were in charge of securing the event weren’t being paid due to the shutdown and suggested Trump give the address from the Oval Office.
