The White House accepted Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Friday invitation to deliver the State of the Union address to Congress on Feb. 4.

Why it matters: President Trump will be speaking before the jurors of his Senate trial — as well as multiple potential 2020 general election opponents — in the chamber where he was impeached earlier this week.

  • Of note: The speech will take place one day after the Iowa caucuses.
