- President Trump is speaking to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night, a day before the Senate is expected to acquit him in his impeachment trial. A team of New York Times reporters who cover the economy, national security, health care and more are listening and fact-checking his claims as he speaks.
- Mr. Trump has regularly been exaggerating and inaccurately portraying elements of his record, including that the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement will create nearly 100,000 auto jobs (false), that the administration has sought to always protect Medicare and Social Security(misleading) and that there is a blue-collar boom(needs context).
- Among those in attendance in the House chamber on Tuesday night were the opposition leader Juan Guaidó, whom Mr. Trump singled out as the “true and legitimate president” of Venezuela, and the conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, who received a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Catch up on the key moments.
