President Trump delivers his State of the Union address Tuesday to a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, as Vice President Pence and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., watch.

President Trump is delivering his State of the Union address Tuesday night, a speech that had been delayed during the government shutdown.

The annual remarks come as a bipartisan group of lawmakers continue to negotiate border security funding and Trump's wall proposal — the central issue that led to the longest shutdown in U.S. history.

NPR reporters will be annotating Trump's remarks live, adding context and analysis.
