President Donald Trump will deliver his third State of the Union Address before a joint session of Congress one day before the Senate votes on the Articles of Impeachment against him, a vote that is all but certain to end in an acquittal. Whether President Trump uses the occasion to spike the football and declare victory against his political rivals or chooses to go the other route and seek, at least for a brief moment, to bring the country together is anyone's guess and even he is likely still deciding which direction to take things.
My guess is that he will take the second option and largely ignore the impeachment trial altogether or only talk about it for a brief moment. One thing that is consistent with the President is he knows his audience. It's one thing to be in front of adoring supporters at a MAGA rally, but it's another thing entirely to be standing in the House chamber speaking to the entire country. So I think he'll likely stick to the script tonight, but don't quote me on that because if we have learned anything about President Trump it's that he does things his own way.
Is anyone planning on watching the speech tonight? If so, what are you hoping to hear? Should the President discuss his impeachment trial and all but certain acquittal or are you hoping he will largely ignore that divisive issue and try to focus on things that both major political parties can agree on?

I'm not one for trying to figure out why President Trump does or doesn't do something, but I have to admit I'm somewhat surprised he didn't bring up impeachment considering how ... unorthodox the rest of his speech was.
