Donald Trump Thinks His Speech To Congress Broke Records, But GUESS WHAT?

Share This Story

Donald Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress last night reportedly pulled in more than 43 million viewers across eight major networks airing the hour-long speech, down from the numbers pulled by President Obama’s first similar speech.

President Obama’s 2009 address to a joint session brought in an average of 52.4 million viewers—as such, Trump’s remarks were down 17% from that year. Additionally, Obama’s first official State of the Union, in 2010, pulled in 48 million viewers.

As media watchers might expect, Trump-friendly Fox News dominated individual network ratings, grabbing 10.1 million viewers during the speech.
