President Donald Trump will deliver his first address to Congress tonight, Feb. 28, and HollywoodLife.com has all the details on where, when and how you can watch it — plus what to expect. Check it out.
President Donald Trump, 70, will address a joint session of Congress (Members of both the House of Representatives and Senate) on Tuesday, February 28, 2017, at 9:00 PM EST. It will take place at The United States Capitol in the House Chamber, AKA the Hall of the House of Representatives, and you can watch it live RIGHT HERE. It will also be broadcast on major news networks.
So what will go down tonight? Well, the official White House website states (rather vaguely): “During his first Joint Address to Congress, the President will communicate his vision for the future of the country directly to the American people as he moves forward with his plans to take on the many challenges facing this nation. Building on his inaugural address, President Trump will continue to lay out his agenda to Make America Great Again.” Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan has also boasted, “This will be an opportunity for the people and their representatives to hear directly from our new President about his vision and our shared agenda.”
That being said, many experts have predicted specifics, reporting that the President will talk about the budget — he wants to increase defense spending by $54 billion — and the future of Obamacare (which he has promised to repeal and replace). His ultra-controversial travel ban could also come up, as many Democrats will reportedly bring guests who have been effected by Trump’s executive order. No matter what happens, there are sure to be dramatics — you’ll definitely want to tune in.
