Democrat Joe Kennedy to respond to Trump's union speech

The official told reporters that Trump will aim to be "unifying, ' while speaking "from the heart" during the 'forward looking" speech, ABC News said.

Kennedy will be the first MA politician to deliver the response since 1985, when then-House Speaker Thomas (Tip) O'Neill joined Bill Clinton (who was Arkansas governor at the time) and then-Florida Gov. She did not skip former President George W. Bush's State of the Union speeches.

House and Senate Democrats are not united on whether to boycott or attend the SOTU.

A senior administration official who briefed reporters Friday said that the address would be bipartisan, optimistic and "forward-looking", and will cover at least five topics: jobs and the economy, infrastructure, immigration, trade and national security. At his confirmation hearing, Bridenstine was pressed on his lack of scientific background.

"The most capable White Houses leverage this moment to not just be a night of television where you have a big national audience but to set both the message and policy agenda for the year", said Jennifer Palmieri, who was an aide in both the Clinton and Barack Obama White Houses.

Trump's infrastructure plan will come with a huge hole next month

The televised speech will be simulcast on networks and cable stations across the country, but in the age of tablets and mobile phones, news outlets have also figured out several ways in which people can tune in online.

Taking a cue from the Time's Up movement's show of solidarity on the Golden Globes red carpet, other Democrats are planning to wear all black or bring guests impacted by the immigration debate. The result was that Republicans in Congress moved the bills they cared about (health care and taxes) and ignored the areas they didn't care about, such as infrastructure, even if Trump campaigned hard on them.

With regard to trade, Trump is expected to restate the points he made Friday during his trip to Davos, Switzerland, in which he urged foreign countries to invest in America and expressed a desire to negotiate "mutually beneficial" trade agreements. This won't be his first address before Congress - he made one past year shortly after his inauguration. The group manages a legal-defense fund for women who face sexual misconduct in the workplace.

Beyond YouTube, the State of the Union will also be available on Twitter, where coverage will be complemented with a live feed of tweets. John Hoeven, R-N.D. She interned in his office in 2016.
