Boasts, Barbs and a ripped up speech: President Trump's 2020 State of the Union address

Description:

President Trump addressed lawmakers in his 2020 State of the Union address on Feb. 4. Here are key moments from his speech.


House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) defended her decision to rip up President Donald Trump's 2020 State of the Union address.

In an interview with CNN Pelosi also said that the Senate's acquittal of Trump on impeachment charges did not mean he was "vindicated."
During his 2020 State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Trump touched on a wide variety of issues, from the economy and health care to immigration and the military.

Trump also took the opportunity to highlight what he considers his biggest accomplishments so far, including overseeing a period of economic growth, the passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), and more, giving his address the air of a campaign rally — especially as this year's campaign season is just getting underway.

But over the course of his speech, President Trump made several claims that were exaggerated or factually incorrect. Here are the facts you need to know about Trump's claims.
