Just two days after Donald Trump’s successful Super Tuesday results and the evening before Friday's midnight government funding deadline, the president is set to deliver one of his most important speeches of the year. With Biden already campaigning for re-election, the President’s State of the Union address will likely cover his vision for the next four years, drawing a large audience. Most news networks will be covering the speech live, and the White House will also be providing a free livestream — complete with emoji-reaction capabilities.
