President Donald Trump gave his first State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress, Jan. 30, 2018. Democrat Rep. Joe Kennedy III, of Massachusetts, delivered the traditional rebuttal following the president's address.

The president touched on the nation's strong economy as well as themes around "building a safe, strong and proud America," as administration officials called it — immigration, border security, infrastructure, military preparedness and the threat of North Korea.

Journalists across the NPR newsroom annotated the president's remarks, adding fact-checks and analysis in real time. Video of the State of the Union is found above.
