Shortly after the president concludes his speech to a joint session of Congress, former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear will deliver the Democratic Response to President Trump’s address. Beshear was chosen by Democratic Party leaders for his record, expanding affordable health care.
NPR will have a transcript of Beshear’s remarks and journalists across the NPR newsroom will also be annotating his remarks.
Note: This page will update automatically as the response proceeds. We will work to correct the transcript as it comes in, but due to the live nature of the event, there may be some discrepancies.
