Democratic Response To Trump's Address To Congress, Annotated

Following President Trump's address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, the Democratic Party gave its response. Party leaders chose former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear to do the honors this year.


Beshear, who left office in 2015, has a record of expanding access to affordable health care, lowering his state's uninsured rate from more than 20 percent to 7.5 percent. NPR journalists have annotated his remarks.
