Another historic State of the Union has been delivered — This time, by a president who has been impeached. The last president who delivered this barometer of the nation’s health under the cloud of impeachment was President Bill Clinton. Though Clinton wasn’t speaking literally the night before his anticipated acquittal. But, Clinton was acquitted by the Senate and President Donald Trump is poised to be acquitted today.
Trump covered many topics in a survey of accomplishments. He introduced a number of guests, including Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who had been invited to watch the speech in the House Chamber.
Three local Democratic and Republican Party chairs join us to share their thoughts on the speech.
- San Joaquin County Republican Party Chair Dwight Williams
- Sacramento County Republican Party Chair Betsy Mahan
- Sacramento County Democratic Party Chair Terry Schanz
- Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs, who has endorsed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the presidential election
