House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) reads behind U.S. President Donald Trump during his State of the Union address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump, on the eve of his likely acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial, delivered his third State of the Union address – and added to the drama with a handful of stage-managed surprises.

His 78-minute remarks to Congress never mentioned the word impeachment yet partisanship loomed over his visit Tuesday to Capitol Hill. Republicans chanted “four more years” after the president was introduced at the podium and a swath of Democratic women were dressed in all white to honor suffragettes.
