U.S. President Joe Biden delivers his State of the Union address to Congress, covering a wide range of domestic issues and some international concerns. 

It’s a yearly tradition, required by the U.S. Constitution. The president gives Congress his take on the state of the union. But it has become over time a political spectacle, especially when Congress is deeply divided. 

Joining the discussion:

  • Joseph Williams is a former Senior Editor for the U.S. News and World Report. 
  • Anton Fedyashin is a history professor at American University.
  • Aaron Mate is the host of the Pushback with Aaron Mate, at The Grayzone. 
  • Einar Tangen is Senior Fellow at the Taihe Institute.
