The 2019 State of the Union Address is scheduled to be given by Donald Trump on Tuesday, January 29, 2019. According to History, Evolution, and Practices of the President’s State of the Union Address: Frequently Asked Questions (R44770, Jan 9, 2019) “the State of the Union address has evolved considerably. The President’s State of the Union address was known as the President’s Annual Message to Congress until well into the 20th century. Presidents George Washington and John Adams delivered their messages to Congress in person, but President Thomas Jefferson abandoned the practice as “monarchical” and time consuming, sending written messages instead. This precedent was followed until President Woodrow Wilson personally appeared before Congress in 1913. President Franklin Roosevelt adopted Wilson’s practice of personal delivery, and it has since become a contemporary tradition. With the advent of radio (1923), television (1947), and live webcast (2002) coverage of the address, it has gained greater importance by providing a nationwide platform for the President.”
