President Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver his State of the Union address—the last one of his first and potentially only term—at around 9:10 p.m. on Tuesday night.

The speech comes the night before the Senate is expected to deliver its decision on whether they will acquit or convict Trump on the two articles of impeachment—obstruction of Congress and abuse of power—that were passed by the House of Representatives back in December.

Of course, it is all but expected that the Republican-controlled Senate will acquit Trump. What is up for question, though, is if the president, who has railed and wailed about the proceedings will mention it in his SOTU address.

According to CBS News, quoting a senior White House adviser, mention of the impeachment “is not currently planned.”

“I don’t see the President making a big statement one way or another that would indicate anything different than what he’s been saying for many months,” one Republican close to Trump told CNN.

However, it is likely that Trump will tout the victories of his administration, while also drawing attention to how his beliefs contrast against those of Democrats according to the report.
