A day before President Donald Trump's address to a joint session of Congress, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer offered a prebuttal to the President’s speech at a National Press Club Newsmaker on February 27, 2016.

Pelosi has led the House Democrats since 2003 and was the first woman elected to be Speaker of the House; Schumer became Democratic leader in January with the retirement of Sen. Harry Reid.

The two top Democrats have supported an independent investigation of the intelligence community’s findings that Russia intervened in the U.S. election to help elect Trump, have been critical of the president’s refusal to release his income tax returns, and have objected to several of his Cabinet nominees and executive orders.
