US President Biden’s State of the Union speech – Live stream

US President Joe Biden is due to deliver the State of the Union address before a joint session of the 117th Congress in the chamber of the House of Representatives at the Capitol, in Washington DC.

The speech is scheduled at 9 pm EST (local time), which is 2 GMT, which could stretch for roughly an hour.

Biden is expected to speak on the topics of inflation and the Russia-Ukraine war, with a source familiar with the text confirming that the president’s address had been revised to emphasize the invasion of Ukraine “as a major crisis facing the West,” per the Washington Post (WaPo).

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki reiterated that Biden “absolutely” would address inflation in his speech and call on Congress to act accordingly.

Meanwhile, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds will deliver a live speech from Des Moines in response to Biden’s remarks.
