In addition to the Ukrainian ambassador to the U.S. Oksana Markarova, Tyre Nichols’ parents and House Speaker Paul Pelosi, the White House’s guest list for the State of the Union addresses a diverse range of policy priorities for the Biden administration.
It was said in a Tuesday announcement of the 26 guests who would join first lady Jill Biden in the White House viewing box that the White House invited them because they personify issues or themes that President Biden will address in his speech, or because they embody the Biden-Harris Administration’s policies at work for the American people.
During his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening at the Capitol, Biden is expected to discuss key initiatives of his administration and introduce a 2024 reelection campaign message.
ABC News/Washington Post poll results released Monday showed 62% of Americans say Biden did not accomplish much, little or nothing, while 36% say he did a great deal or an excellent amount. The speech will be broadcast live on all major cable and television news networks. If you prefer to hear it without commentary, tune to C-SPAN.
Additionally, they will carry the Republican response, led by former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
