What to Watch For During State of the Union? 'None of It' Ocasio-Cortez Says

After it was postponed and rescheduled, President Donald Trump's State of the Union address is scheduled for Tuesday evening. Trump is expected to deliver the address in the House Chamber Tuesday in front of members of Congress and their guests. The event will also be televised for people across the country to watch.

Ahead of the address from the president some outlets were highlight key issues that Trump might mention or talk about in his speech like border wall funding and taxes. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex retweeted CNN's tweet that said "State of the Union 2019: What to watch" and she said, "None of it."

The congresswoman from New York didn't elaborate on her message. It's unclear whether she meant that her constituents and others across the country shouldn't watch the address at all, or if she meant they shouldn't look for specific mentions of certain issues.

Some congresspeople, like representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon and John Lewis of Georgia, said that they won't be attending the speech from the president Tuesday night. More members could still announce that they didn't plan to attend as well.

Ocasio-Cortez is expected to be in attendance at the State of the Union Tuesday night though, with a guest with her as is customary. She shared Monday on Twitter that she was bringing Ana Maria Archila, the woman who confronted Senator Jeff Flake about her sexual assault and urged him to reconsider his vote for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"She wasn't planning on leaping into that elevator ahead of the Kavanaugh vote, but after hearing the stories of survivors across the country, she went in. A defining moment," Ocasio-Cortez said about Archila.

Some women in Congress plan to wear white to the event Tuesday as they have in years past as well. The color is a nod to the suffragettes who wore white while fighting for the right to vote. They'll be wearing white in opposition to efforts to roll back the rights and progress of women in the United States.

The State of the Union is expected to begin at 9 p.m. EST Tuesday and will be broadcast by most major networks and C-SPAN, as well as live, streamed online for those without cable.
