President Donald Trump will deliver his State of the Union address this evening. The speech, typically given every year of a president’s term except the first, reports on the current condition of the United States and allows the leader to outline legislative and other priorities.
Murphysboro Republican Congressman Mike Bost says he expects Trump to touch on jobs, the economy, infrastructure, immigration, trade, and national security.
Maryville Republican John Shimkus says national security will be a topic he will be listening intently to.
Tonight's State of the Union is scheduled for 8pm, and can be seen and heard on most major news networks and streaming services.
