US President Donald Trump was today invited to address a joint session of the Congress on February 28.
House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters at a news conference that he is inviting President Trump to address a joint session of the Congress.
He said it will be an opportunity for the people and their representatives to hear directly from Mr Trump about his vision. The White House and both chambers of Congress are now controlled by Republicans.
Ryan’s formal invitation fulfills a tradition that provides an incoming president with the opportunity to address Congress within weeks of taking office.
A joint session of Congress usually occurs in the House of Representatives chamber, and is attended by all 100 US senators and 435 representatives.
