State of the Union Live Updates: Trump announces date for next North Korea summit

President Donald Trump on Tuesday night gave his second State of the Union address, one week after he originally was invited to deliver it but didn't because of the longest-ever government shutdown.

It was the first State of the Union address Trump delivered before a divided Congress. Last year, the Senate and House were controlled by the president's own Republican party. This year, Democrats re-took the House.

Trump also delivered his address to a House chamber filled with more women and people of color than ever before. During the speech, there was a brief moment of unity propelled by congresswomen in white and their allies show solidarity with the women's suffrage movement.

The speech came at a particularly tense period for Trump and Congress as it's been just a week since the government reopened after a 35-day shutdown and there are only 10 days until the government will shut down yet again if the president and Congress don't come to an agreement on border security.

The Democratic response, which follows the speech, will come from Stacey Abrams, a rising star in the Party who ran for governor of Georgia in 2018.

Abrams will be the first African-American woman to give the speech responding to the presidential address, according to all archival research on the speech from both the House and Senate historian offices.

Former presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders also will deliver a response to Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday night, something he's done three years in a row, through a live stream on social media. He'll speak after Abrams.
