The White House is moving forward with plans for the president to deliver his State of the Union address next week.
According to reports Tuesday, the White House sent a letter to the Sergeant at Arms asking for a walk through to prepare for the January 29, 2019 speech to Congress.
It was also reported that the president is preparing two State of the Union speeches — one traditional for Congress and the other for a political rally outside of Washington, D.C. It is unclear where the rally style speech will take place.
Originally, one version was prepared for if the government was still shutdown and the another if the government was open, but that has evolved to assuming the shutdown will drag on.
One America News we will be carrying both of the president’s State of the Union addresses, and will have special coverage of the congressional speech with Liz Wheeler.
