State of the Union Recap


Article II of the US Constitution requires that the President of the United States deliver a State of the Union from time to time, including a budget report and legislative proposals. Every president uses the State of the Union as a way to update the people on what has been done and what there is to do in the country, but The State of the Union is nothing without some form of rebellion. 

Memorable moments include Democratic Congresswomen wearing white in honor of the women’s suffrage movement; during Trump’s talk on gun laws, father of a killed Parkland student started to scream his disagreements and was escorted out by security shortly after. Also, something that stole the show and gained a lot of attention online was Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi who immediately ripped up her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union speech after he finished speaking.

One of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s guests for the event, Fred Guttenberg, a gun violence activist who lost his daughter in the Parkland school shooting in 2018, was escorted out of the House chamber by police after loudly shouting something at the president during his address.

Here is a quick recap of what President Trump mentioned in the Speech.
