President Barack Obama is scheduled to give his final State of the Union address Tuesday evening, where he is expected to speak about the future of the country and what his plans for his final year in office are. This year, the White House is ramping up the ways in which it hopes to engage with citizens and is providing many ways for people to watch the speech, including on Youtube while it is happening and on Amazon the day after.
You can find a live stream of the speech as well as details about the speech beforehand right here at 9 p.m. EST. You can also access past State of the Union speeches made by the president through that link.
Obama and his team are trying to make it easier than ever to watch Obama’s final address to Congress, and, in addition to streaming video online, will even be putting together a Snapchat story for the event. The president’s digital team, in general, is hoping to change gears to reach more viewers with their online strategy.
In a promotional video filmed in the Oval Office, Obama tells viewers that he’s never been more optimistic for the year ahead and that his final State of the Union address is “for you.” The White House website has several clues as to what he will talk about, including the landmark Iranian nuclear agreement reached in 2015, an international accord on climate reached last month in Paris and healthcare reform. The general state of the economy is also featured prominently on the White House website, boasting low unemployment rates and the administration’s record of adding 14.1 million jobs to the American economy since Obama took office in January of 2009.
