    This was a subject that needed to have congress to be informed on the status ASAP. Congress would have had to have Received a Request for the POTUS' Address, then the congress would have to convene and hold debate (required) then a Vote, if passed then the request would have to be sent to the senate, followed by required Debate, then Vote. Then the Congrssional staff would have to put the request in writing, set a time and date for the address, so we are talking up to 1 week delay..

    or the POTUS can say I need to address congress invite all members to the white House (in a written invitation) and the meeting scheduled with every member that wishes to attend within a matter of Hours.

    Like I told the OP, you need to learn protocol before you make uninformed assumptions



    You make it sound like the senators had to get on a train and drive to the white house IT IS WITHIN FREAKING WALKING DISTANCE.. Hell I am a 62 year old over weight Mountain William, I can make that trek easily

    do you? It appears you don't know the protocol for the setting addresses to congress. But Ginger is adult enough to know the process.

    Trump wasn't speaking to "congress", just the senate.

    and even republicans among them walked out afterwards and wondered why they made the trip.

    Which is easier and presents fewer security problems, the President to go down the street to the Senate Building or 100 Senators go to the White House?
