Donald Trump’s State of the Union address 2018: Live updates

President Donald Trump, bedeviled for a year by poor poll numbers and the Russia investigation, presents his first-ever State of the Union address to Congress and the nation on Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET. 

The president is looking to showcase accomplishments of his first year while setting the tone for the second. The theme of this address is “Building a safe, strong and proud America.”

While this is Trump’s first State of the Union address, it is not the first time he has addressed a joint session of Congress. Trump spoke before Congress last February.
