How to watch the State of the Union tonight
On Tuesday, January 30th, President Donald Trump will give his first State of the Union address at 9 p.m. ET from the U.S. Capitol in Washington. But where exactly can you watch one of the biggest political events of the year? Coverage on most news channels will begin at 7 p.m. ET and all major broadcast and cable networks, including CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, CNN, and MSNBC, will air the State of the Union 2018.
For those of you without cable, C-SPAN will stream the address live online and the White House has set up its own broadcasts on Facebook and YouTube. Twitter will also broadcast a free livestream of the speech.
If all else fails, you can always watch it right here with the PBS NewsHour’s live YouTube stream below.
So, what can we expect from the address? Trump is expected to highlight five issues: jobs and the economy, infrastructure, immigration, trade, and national security.
According to a senior White House official, the theme of Trump’s address will be “building a safe, strong, and proud America.”
Other important thing to note: Many Democrats will follow in Hollywood’s footsteps by wearing black to the State of the Union. Some of them will also bring survivors of sexual assault as their guests.
We’re also curious to know whether or not Trump will address the embarrassing spelling mistake found on some of the tickets.
If that typo is any indication, Trump’s first-ever “State of the Uniom” address is sure to be eventful.
