Donald Trump gives his first official State of the Union address on Tuesday, January 30, at 9pm Eastern | 6pm Pacific. Hate him or loathe him (There are no Trump lovers in the greater PowerThru Community) what he says and how he says it will matter.
Our team will be listening in (and providing live color-commentary via Twitter) on a range of topics we and our clients work on. And you can tune in with us! RSVP here and/or come back just before the speech starts Tuesday night and we’ll host a live stream of the speech, with running commentary from our team and a range of journalists, pundits, advocates and politicians just below.
What to watch for: the Pre Game
Here’s some links and hot takes before the big speech to give you an idea what to listen for.
- The Washington Posts pre-speech “what to listen for” isn’t bad
- The NPR politics podcast is a fave of Drew’s and the weekly roundup from last week covers the “where we’re at” pretty well. Check back Tuesday afternoon for a special pre-speech recap too.
- For DACA and immigration related stuff, check the news from our friends at United We Dream. Drew’s been working with them for the last few weeks and was in DC to support the Shutdown earlier in January.
- For ObamaCare, check out Laura’s new/old friends at Health Care Voter, where she’s recently joined as a co-chair
- For Climate and energy … there’s not much good to say so nobody much is saying anything. But Drew’s 198 Methods project will mirror this live-stream, so feel free to watch with them too!
