White House announces State of the Union guests

  • President Trump: Democrats do nothing to secure border, national emergency still possible

Among those attending is 11-year-old Joshua Trump, who made headlines last December when it was reported that he was in the process of changing his last name after being bullied at school.

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., also said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that Trump shouldn't invoke executive authority to get border-wall funding.

As protocol dictates, the president will be flanked on one side by Pelosi, a California Democrat often disparaged by Republicans. With numbers like that, it's not hard to see why Democrats were happy to wait Trump out during the shutdown and it's hard to see them doing anything different this time around.

The president is expected to dedicate a chunk of his address before Congress to championing a southern border wall, the main sticking point he's had with the Democrats since they took power in the House of Representatives.

Trump's first ever State of the Union address, delivered January 2018, clocked in at 1 hour and 20 minutes. And White House officials have indicated Trump is not expected to declare a national emergency during his Tuesday evening address.

Trump will also highlight two of his legislative achievements: passage of a criminal justice bill that allows for early release of low-level offenders, and a package of programs and policies meant to curb the nation's opioid epidemic.

Alice Marie Johnson, 63, served more than two decades of a life sentence without parole before Trump commuted her sentence previous year. "He'll tell people, 'Here's why I should, ' but say, 'I'm giving Congress another chance to act'". Trump's tax reform is credited with boosting economic spending.


Even so, Shelby said as long as Trump and Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., remain at odds over allocating money for new wall construction, "the chances of us reaching an agreement are slim".

Here are some things that a hypothetical Democratic president could try to address via a declaration of emergency in the future. The state of the Trump healthcare system is failing American families.

The reactions to Melania's choice largely focused on how the Trumps have managed to make a child's suffering about themselves at the expense of the many other children who experience bullying. Andres heads a charity that began in 2010 to feed quake survivors in Haiti and that offered free food and coffee to furloughed workers during the partial government shutdown.

She has shown no sign of budging from her opposition to Trump's wall-funding demand.

At 9pm local time on Tuesday (1300 AEDT Wednesday) before a joint session of congress, Mr Trump likely will stir contention with remarks on immigration policy.

Commenting on the Pentagon's decision, Trump stated that while a wall would be "soooo much easier and less expensive" than sending troops, the measure was necessary to stop the "Invasion of Illegals" trying to gain entry into the US.

In a statement, the White House described the sixth grader as a boy who appreciates science, art and history, and said his "hero and best friend is his Uncle Cody, who serves in the United States Air Force".
