C-SPAN’s preview program of President Trump’s second State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress included tweets from members of Congress, other politicians, and journalists as well as scenes from the Senate chamber as senators gathered to walk across the Capitol for the speech and members of Congress waiting in the House for the arrival of the president. Clips were shown of an interview with Don Ritchie, Senate historian emeritus, talking about the history of the annual address required by the Constitution in Article II, Section 3.

The address was originally scheduled for January 29, 2019, but was postponed due to the 35-day partial government shutdown, the longest in U.S. history. close
