Pres. Donald Trump had his second State of the Union address earlier today. According to CNN, his speech was “surprisingly bipartisan and deeply divisive,” and he’s still blasting the Democrats for the border wall he isn’t getting.
On the other side, the women of the Democratic party all wore white. Rep. Brenda Lawrence, leader of the Democratic Women’s Working Group said, “Today we stand together wearing white in solidarity with the women of the suffrage movement who refused to take no for an answer. To an administration that has closed its eyes to women, we will be seen.”

There have never been as many women serving in Congress as there are today. At Tuesday's #SOTU, they’re hoping to send a message, “wearing suffragette white is a respectful message of solidarity with women across the country, and a declaration that we will not go back on our hard-earned rights," said Rep. Lois Frankel, the chair of the House Democratic Women's Working Group. By wearing white in solidarity, the women are honoring the women's suffrage movement and women's rights.

What’s even more surprising is that presidential daughter, Tiffany Trump also wore white at the SOTU address. Her siblings and step-mom, Melania, all wore dark colors.

We don’t know if this is Tiffany throwing shade at her father or it’s just a coincidence. Funnily enough, Melania was the one who wore a white pantsuit at the SOTU address last year. This came after women of the Democratic Party wore white during Trump’s first address to Congress. This was also amid the Stormy Daniels exposé.
What do you think of the outfit choice, especially with the Trumps’ history of “statement” pieces?[Elle]
