President Trump's Address to Congress & the Democratic Response

Feb 28, 2017

Tonight, around 8 pm, President Trump will address a joint session of Congress for the first time. The address comes one day after Trump gave an outline of his budget plan to Congress. That plan includes increases in defense spending and cuts to domestic programs.

Shortly after the president concludes, former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear will deliver the Democratic response. Additionally, immigrant activist Astrid Silva will provide a Spanish language response.

NPR's Politics team will be annotating both Trump and Beshear's remarks starting at 8 pm. You can view both annotations below.
