The US President wants to spread plenty of optimism, once again. Before the impeachment process ends, Donald Trump delivers his third speech on the state of the nation in Congress. A member of parliament prefers to stay at home.

In protest against US President Donald Trump, well-known US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has stayed away from his State of the Union speech. “After thinking about it for a long time, I decided that I would not use my presence at a state ceremony to normalize Trump’s lawless behavior & undermining the constitution,” tweeted the democrat. “This is a deeply personal decision that each member has to make, and a decision that I didn’t make lightly.”

Ocasio-Cortez is considered the leading figure of the left-wing of the US Democrats and is an outspoken critic of the president.

Since 3:00 GMT in the US Congress Trump keeps his third State of the Nation – just before the Senate yet this Wednesday falls in impeachment proceedings against him a judgment. The motto is “the big American comeback”. Trump had announced that he wanted to give the country a “very, very positive message”.

US presidents can also use the annual speech to announce new initiatives or laws . Republican Trump will keep an eye on the November presidential election, in which he wants to apply for a second term. For the Democrats, Gretchen Whitmer, Governor of Michigan, will respond to the President’s speech in Congress.
