Sanders has made responding to Trump's televised addresses a habit, delivering a response to the president's speech on border security last month in addition to responding to previous speeches to Congress.

Sanders, who is an independent but caucuses with Democrats, will be delivering his response after former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams delivers the official Democratic Party response.
