President Trump addresses a joint session of Congress for the first time Tuesday, Feb. 28, around 9:00 PM ET.

Following tradition, House Speaker Paul Ryan invited the president to make the speech to lay out his agenda in the early days of his new administration. NPR will offer this live transcript of the remarks, and NPR journalists with expertise in politics, immigration, business, law and more will offer their analysis and annotations.
