It's almost time for Donald Trump's second State of the Union address to begin.

The speech was delayed by a week as a result of the recent federal government shutdown, when House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvited the POTUS from the chambers until the government was reopened. Originally slated for Tuesday, Jan. 29, the State of the Union address will now air on Tuesday, Feb. 5.

Donald Trump has said that the theme of his second State of the Union address will be "unity," and Democrats are also pushing a message of solidarity, with plans for congresswomen on both sides of the aisle to wear white as a showing of support for one another. Following Trump's speech, Georgia's former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will deliver the Democrats' response to the SOTU.
