Live: Trump Delivers State of the Union Address

President Donald Trump delivers his State of the Union Address on Tuesday night to both chambers of Congress in Washington.

    

The event started at 9 p.m. ET, where the president touted the U.S. economic recovery in a key moment ahead of the 2020 election.

Eleven guests will attend the speech, according to a statement from the White House on Tuesday, and each individuals story will be highlighted by Trump during his address. They include a Border Patrol deputy chief; a former Venezuelan police chief who was held in detention for 15 years before escaping; military veterans, and the wife of a soldier who was killed in Iraq by forces associated with Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani—who was killed in a U.S. drone strike earlier this year,—and others.

Behind Trump is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Vice President Mike Pence.
