President Donald Trump addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time Tuesday evening. The address comes a day after Trump gave an outline of his budget plan for Congress, which would increase defense spending and make cuts to domestic programs. 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 transcribed the remarks.
