Incredibly enough, this is not the first time that Donald Trump's signature red tie has managed to make news. In 2017, Twitter had a great time poking fun of it after discovering that he used sticky tape to hold his tie together.

At this State of the Union address, the POTUS spoke to a joint session of the US Congress over his demands that Democrats end their opposition to funding a US-Mexico border wall. During his 82-minute speech, he outlined his political priorities and called illegal immigration "an urgent national crisis".
