Trump faces accusers: What to watch during his big speech tonight

{{featured_button_text}}

On the brink of his Senate acquittal, President Donald Trump will unleash "relentless optimism" during his third State of the Union address, a speech designed to pivot from his impeachment to his drive for reelection.

Trump is speaking from a position of strength, with nearly complete control of the Republican Party. The theme of his speech: "The Great American Comeback."

It'll be a different experience for Democrats. They're in the throes of a divisive presidential nomination fight, just a day after the kickoff caucuses in Iowa. Nearly all House Democrats voted for Trump's impeachment.

And the contrast with Trump's State of the Union address last year will be stark. Then, Speaker Nancy Pelosi had just forced Trump to reopen the government. Her smirking clap, eye-to-eye with him, mocked the president of the United States in front of the world.

What to watch during Trump's speech at 8 p.m. CST Tuesday.
