Spelling error on State of the Union tickets may force them to be recalled

President Donald Trump is set to deliver his first State of the Union address on Tuesday night, but the historic speech has already hit at least one small snare. 

Laura Barrón-López, a reporter for the Washington Examiner, took to Twitter on Monday to share a photo of a ticket to the event, which included a spelling error that she claims could necessitate a recall. 

"Republicans may have to recall all State of the Union tickets because they say "Uniom" not "Union," per two Dem aides," Barrón-López wrote.

Whether or not the tickets will be recalled due to the misspelling remains to be seen, although doing so could prove to be a daunting task, considering the event is taking place tomorrow night. 

UPDATE: A spokesperson for the House Sergeant in Arms office told The Hill that the spelling error has been corrected and that the tickets are in the process of being recalled and reprinted.

Topics you can expect out of Trump's first State of the Union

Tax reform win

Trump's single biggest legislative win in his first year as president was signing tax reform legislation into law. He will undoubtedly tout this Capitol Hill victory in his speech.


From the border wall to a continued call to end "chain migration," major immigration reform and a plan for the 690,000 Dreamers brought to the U.S. illegally as children is likely going to be a major subject of Trump's State of the Union address.


As recently as last week in Davos, President Trump has emphasized that he wants "fair" trade deals that benefit the U.S.


Trump is set to release his promised infrastructure plan on Tuesday -- a potentially $1 trillion workup that was reportedly leaked last week.

Stock market

Trump often boasts of a booming U.S. economy via Twitter, and will surely use the rocketing market as evidence of his administration's good work.

America First

Building off his nationalist speech in Davos last week, President Trump will likely posture himself before Congress as a commander in chief who puts the U.S. interest first, and everything else comes after that.

National security

Where Trump administration rhetoric is concerned, national security and immigration go hand in hand. The address will likely also maintain elements of praise for ICE and law enforcement agency work.
