Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will deliver his own rebuttal to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address tonight.

The response will be the third time the Vermont senator has pushed back against Trump following high-profile speeches. In 2017, Sanders responded to the president’s first speech to a joint session of Congress. He also offered his own rebuttal to the 2018 State of the Union.

His rebuttal will be streamed on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

However, not everyone is thrilled that Sanders, an independent who is reportedly considering a presidential run as a Democrat in 2020, will respond to the speech when Democrats have tapped former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams to give their official rebuttal.

The controversy was slightly overblown when it was misreported that Sanders would give his speech at the same time as Abrams. People online thought Sanders was trying to upstage Abrams. In fact, Sanders will speak after Abrams has concluded her remarks.

In a tweet, the senator called Abrams a “great choice” to give the Democrats response. An aide told Bloomberg News that his response to Trump’s address will occur after Abrams has finished.


The senator said his response will be livestreamed on a number of his official social media profiles including Facebook LiveTwitter, and YouTube. You can watch below:
