Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, fellow Americans:
By tradition, the Speaker of the House invites the President to give the State of the Union address each year.
The Vice President is seated next to the Speaker, behind the President of the United States.
The members of Congress are the audience to whom the POTUS gives the speech.
“Fellow Americans” are the people like us listening at home.
