Amid one of the more consequential weeks in American politics, President Donald Trump will visit the House of Representatives’ chamber tonight to deliver his third State of the Union Address. Below is a rundown of how to watch on TV and online.
Note first that Deadline will have the livestream right here, starting at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT. Watch it above.
POTUS 45 will take the podium a day after the first vote of the 2020 presidential election cycle — the Iowa caucus — and the night before the Senate votes on whether to convict him on House Democrats’ articles of impeachment. Oh, and the Democratic White House hopefuls have another debate set for Friday.
While the electorate digests all that, here is where you can watch Trump speak — and possibly House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slow-clap — with the Democratic Response from Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to follow:
