On Feb. 1, 2018, President Donald Trump tweeted that his first State of the Union was the most watched in history.

"Thank you for all of the nice compliments and reviews," he wrote. "Delivered from the heart!"

Since the announcement, families of gun violence victims and survivors have rallied around the hashtag #EmptySeat, using it to express the feeling of loss that comes along with losing loved ones to gun violence.
