WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has invited President Donald Trump to deliver the State of the Union address on Feb. 5 -- and he appears to have agreed to it.

In a letter to Trump, Pelosi writes, "In our conversation today, we agreed on February 5th ... Therefore, I invite you to deliver your State of the Union address before a Joint Session of Congress on February 5, 2019 in the House Chamber." 

Trump responded later in the day with his own latter, writing, "It is my great honor to accept. We have a great story to tell, and yet, great goals to achieve! I look forward to seeing you on the 5th."
