Another year, another State of the Union by the President of the United States. It’s time for the 2023 address by President Joe Biden to discuss the nation’s current conditions and plans for the year.
This will be the Democratic president’s first time addressing the Senate and House of Representatives since the midterm elections, which have now given power of the House to the Republican party.
So where can you watch this year’s speech? What time do you need to tune in? We’ve got the answer for you below!
What is the State of the Union?
The State of the Union address is a message from the U.S. president every year. The head of state delivers the message to a joint session of Congress (members of the Senate and House together), as well as the nation. Addresses usually feature updates on the country’s budget, economy, achievements, and the president’s plans and legislative proposals.
In 2023, President Biden has much to address in this year’s message. Those include his hopes to continue uniting Democrats and Republicans, the recent death of Tyre Nichols in Memphis, Tennessee due to police brutality, America’s continued support to Ukraine among the Russian invasion, and the Chinese spy balloon.
