Chatfield invites Trump to give State of the Union from Lansing

Chatfield invites Trump to give State of the Union from Lansing.

LANSING, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- The Michigan Speaker of the House has invited the President to Michigan to give his State of the Union address.

Earlier this week U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi asked President Donald Trump to postpone his State of the Union address until the government shutdown is finished.

In response to the "unavailability of the United States House of Representatives" State Representative Lee Chatfield has invited President Trump to address the national from the Michigan Capitol.

Chatfield said he hopes Michigan can be an example for how both sides can work together and get things done.

The Michigan Democratic Party responded to Chatfield's invitation calling it a "slap in the face" to Michigan workers impacted by the shutdown.

"Instead of pandering to Trump, Chatfield should demand he stop his temper tantrum and end his shutdown so thousands of Michiganders can start getting paychecks again,” Democrats said in a statement.
