WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said he is postponing his State of the Union address until the partial government shutdown ends, yielding after a weeklong showdown with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.Following a high-stakes game of dare and double-dare, Trump conceded Wednesday night that "no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber." He said he was not looking for an alternate option after Pelosi served notice earlier in the day that he wouldn't be allowed to deliver the address to a joint session of Congress next week.Pelosi had taken the step after Trump said he planned to show up in spite of Democratic objections to the speech taking place with large swaths of the government shut down.Denied that grand venue, Trump promised to come up with some sort of alternative event.

Donald Trump's bare-knuckled attack on Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell in recent weeks has overshadowed a more pressing question for the U.S. economy: Does the president have a point? Mr. Trump's main beef with the central bank is that its ongoing policy of hiking interest rates is curbing growth just as Americans are reaping the benefits a buoyant economy. The job market is humming, with unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly half a century. Wages, which barely rose during the post-recession "recovery," are finally giving workers a meaningful pay bump. Inflation remains tame. So why mess with success? Trump slams Fed Chair Jerome Powell: A "much bigger problem than China" Trump on the Fed: Central bank is "my biggest threat" The case against hiking interest rates Mr. Trump's unusually fierce rebuke of Powell -- his own pick to lead the central bank -- is, to put it mildly, a departure from precedent. Presidents don't usually rough up Fed chiefs in public, largely … [Read more...] about Is Trump right in accusing Fed chief of hurting the economy?
