House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday formally invited Joe Biden to deliver his State of the Union Address on March 1.
This is the latest date ever for a SOTU speech.
“Thank you for your bold vision and patriotic leadership which have guided America out of crisis and into an era of great progress, as we not only recover from the pandemic but Build Back Better!” Pelosi wrote. “Indeed, this past year has been historic: with the life-saving American Rescue Plan, once-in-a-century Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and, soon, the truly transformational Build Back Better Act!”
SOTU MARCH 1

White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed Joe Biden accepted Pelosi’s invitation.
Recall, Pelosi ripped up Trump’s SOTU speech last February.
Pelosi told reporters that she ripped Trump’s speech because she “realized that almost every page had something in it that was objectionable.”
