President invites boy bullied for having the last name Trump to SOTU

Conway says Trump will also meet with guests the White House has invited to sit with first lady Melania Trump during the speech.

He has hinted that he may make news - a national emergency declaration on the USA southern border, a proposal on drug prices or on AIDS, or dates and locations for summits with the leaders of China and North Korea. But 60 percent of voters still oppose major new wall construction, according to a Gallup poll released Monday-up from 57 percent last June.

That means a "unity" speech would not be a simple declaration that the opposition party needs to come around to the president's way of thinking about everything from the economy to immigration to national security and foreign policy.

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.

Her presence will be a reminder to the President and to the country of Democrats' new position of power in Washington, which they are beginning to exercise this week with a series of new hearings and investigations into the Trump administration.

Trump responded that Schumer was "just upset that he didn't win the Senate, after spending a fortune".

Trump continued to push his wall in a Tuesday morning tweet ahead of his evening remarks, noting that the Pentagon has sent more troops to the USA southern border. "If there is no Wall, there is no Security".

"Look, I don't think that the president's message is going to be different than the one he's been talking about since he started campaigning", Sanders told CNN Tuesday morning.

Last week the economy posted enormous job growth of more than 300,000 new openings. But don't expect that to stop him from doing it anyway.

Liberal media outlets, meanwhile, are already beating the war drums, calling for Democrats to "not give in to Trump's hateful speech".

The economic forecast isn't all roses. That's become even more hard as all the Trump scandals continue to metastasize, with federal prosecutors sending out another flurry of subpoenas this week, this time looking into possible grift and money laundering around Trump's inauguration.

Congressional Democrats, for their part, say the state of our union now provides a ideal opportunity for some live-trolling of the president via special invited guests.

U.S. officials say the Islamic State group now controls less than 10 square kilometers (3.9 square miles) of territory in Syria, an area smaller than New York's Central Park.

President Donald Trump has invited Tom Wibberley - the father of a Maryland man killed in the 2000 terrorist attack on the USS Cole in Yemen - to attend the State of the Union speech Tuesday night as his guest, the White House said.

If last year's State of the Union is any indication, tonight's bipartisan tone is likely to be short-lived: by this weekend, we'll probably be rehashing old arguments about whether or not Trump was right to call Democrats who weren't receptive to his applause lines treasonous.

Last year, President Trump called for bipartisanship on issues such as criminal justice reform, healthcare, and infrastructure, but the Democrats were having none of it.
