"Display. Here's frank. So I'm sure, you know, about the latest dispute between the house speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump. The president is scheduled to give his state of the union address to congress on January twenty nine but speaker Pelosi. Has told the president, you know, you'd better not plan to do it because the government shutdown we can't guarantee security, and so maybe better not give the address it's required that the president provide congress with a state of the union message. He can write it and in all presidents do and then they also make the address, but this year is different. And so other states are taking a look at this and go, wait a minute. We've got to have a state of the union address and here in the state of Michigan. The new house speaker the GOP house speaker Lee Chatfield of levering has sent an invite to President Trump to deliver his state of the union address right in the Michigan state capital in Lansing and speaker Chatfield on the other end of our line this morning. Good morning. Good morning, Frank. I appreciate the opportunity to be honest. I'm actually celebrating this Martin Luther King day with my two oldest children and. Actually currently in the Henry Ford museum. So I I hope it's not too much noise around me. But I appreciate you making time to have. No. And what a what a great place to. Celebrate that too. And I'm sure you'll have them aboard that bus that Rosa Parks staged her her sit in on in Montgomery, Alabama. That's in that is E M as well along with the Kennedy car from the assassination of president John F Kennedy, it's just a a wonderful wonderful place. Well, my my two oldest children have been begging to come here for a couple of years. And all of those things are on our list and actually on Martin Luther King day. Henry Ford has open free admission to the public. So it's quite busy in here today. Well, that's terrific. All right. Let me take you away from your your duties there for a moment and ask you about this invite that you have sent to the White House apparently to seek the the president's address. Here in the state of Michigan. What what have you heard back so far when did you send it the nuts and bolts of, but if you would share it, why the invitation on Friday, and you know, it came to me considering the dysfunction that we're seeing in Washington politics and the partisan gridlock that dude I wanted to provide the president of the United States an opportunity to fulfill his aptitude requirement to give a state of the union address. And in Michigan. Here we found a way and bounce government to work together. And I'm a Republican speaker. I've set the tone that I want our democratic governor to be successful. Because that will mean the state of Michigan is successful. And I'm hopeful that Washington Democrats come to that same conclusion, and we found a way to get things done. We've lead the country here before and state of Michigan. And I wanted the president to know you've got an open venue here in the state capital. Should you to give us address without tell you this spring time of of government shutdown that we're experiencing right now. Now at the time that people need to hear from their commander in chief. And I thought it was the right? Imitation. And they asked me to send it officially I have. And they said I should your back from him shortly. So we'll see where that goes. But I hope it just sent the right message to Washington that you can work across the island get things done. What was the the official date? I'm looking at a copy of the letter, but I don't see a date on it. Of your invitation, Mr Speaker. So I believe I sent that out officially on Friday the eighteenth. Right. And and and any idea when you might get some kind of response, you know, what I'm not exactly certain. And I know the president has been quite busy sense. My invitation to him, and you know, with the proposal that he had made Saturday two all within government to bring you know to open the gun right back up and get us moving in the right direction. So out of the White House has contacted me on a couple of separate occasions and has said that the letter has been put in front of the president. He has read it, and it's under consideration. So at this point, you know, we're just waiting to hear back, but I'll tell you Frank my my I bowl would simply need to have him deliver it in Washington in the federal house with an open government and at the same time ensuring that we have good border security. And I think he's made it's fair. I think it's honest, and I'm hopeful that the Democrats will take it. But at the end of the day, that's not my purview. But living in a federal Listrik system. Government power survive between the states and the federal government and then. Our best interests in the state of Michigan. We have an open federal government. And I just wanted him to know we are open at your service, and we will be flexible with you. She wanted to deliver it and our beautiful capitol in Lansing. Any word from the governor's office on what Gretchen Whitmer might feel about this. You know, I have not heard back in any official capacity of what others in the state of Michigan. I would think whether negative or positive, but I will tell you this. I think it's a step in the right direction for us. Because though, the governor and I have disagreement. I think we're both committed to not letting those disagreements defining, but rather our ability to come forward with solution. And I'm hopeful that Washington will step in new talent because you know, Franken in an era of divided government. You you can't get anything done without an element of consensus and burning desire to see Coppermine. And we're going to do that in Michigan. We will ensure that the people are served. We will come together and find consensus on the issues that are important to the people state of Michigan. And I hope this up to Joan with speaker Pelosi and others in Washington. It's time to set aside partisan game and start serving the people and that will mean to go with the president. All right. Well, we shall wait to see what the response may be. It'll it'll have to be soon though, because the twenty ninth is is almost upon us. It's only eight days away. So these gonna do it could be a quick decision. That's right. Well, listen, I will be awaiting decision when I hear back from them and officials Tabachnyk Frank you will know about it. Good deal. I look forward to having you back on. Then if that's Senator Mr Speaker, thank you so much. Thank you, sir. Appreciate it.
