All Things Considered: State of the Union 2019

Tues., Feb. 5, 8-11pm

Now that the federal government has been reopened, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has extended an invitation to the president to address a joint session of Congress. The president responded that "it is my great honor to accept. We have a great story to tell and yet, great goals to achieve!" NPR will offer live, anchored coverage of the speech and the Democratic Party response. At 8 pm, NPR will offer an extra hour of All Things Considered prior to President Trump's 9pm State of the Union address in the House Chamber of the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, February 5, 2019.
