Last Joint Session - February 4, 2020

President Trump delivered his third State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. The address occurred on the eve of a Senate vote on a verdict in the president’s impeachment trial. As President Trump gave copies of his speech to Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the speaker extended her hand to shake his, but he turned to face the chamber. President Trump addressed a wide range of issues, including immigration policy, health care, jobs, the economy, and border security. During his speech, he acknowledged several guests in the audience and awarded radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh with a Presidential Medal of Freedom. He later surprised a military wife with the return of her husband who was deployed. As the president concluded his remarks, Vice President Pence and Speaker Pelosi stood, and she picked up her copy of the president’s address and tore the pages in two, dropping the ripped pieces on the table in front of her.
