WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has invited President Donald Trump to deliver the State of the Union address on Feb. 4, 2020.

"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 addressed to the President dated Friday.

The invitation from Pelosi comes just days after the House of Representatives took the historic step of voting to impeach Trump, a move that has led to an escalation of partisan tensions on Capitol Hill.
