Things to Watch For at the State of the Union

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

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

Melania Trump's guests at the speech will include the family of a Nevada couple who were allegedly murdered by an undocumented immigrant last month and a Department of Homeland Security agent who works on human trafficking cases, according to the White House.

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.

Of course, many Democrats would argue that it would be unethical for a Democratic president to try to address climate change, health care reform, gun control or the national deficit via an emergency declaration-and that the legislative branch is the appropriate way to address those concerns. The parents added that the bullying started when Donald Trump began running for office.

Disruptive antics and political stunts at the State of the Union are no way to attract moderate voters - as mortified liberal pundits pointed out past year - but with so many Democrats needing to prove their anti-Trump bona fides to potential primary voters, don't expect them to practice restraint this time around, either.

Will Trump keep his 2019 State of the Union promises?

Conway - and the rest of the politically interested world - will be watching the speaker throughout what aides say will be a slightly shorter address than the previous two Trump has delivered in the House chamber. "Symbolic dissent is fine, but this was a cacophony of causes: black clothing (for #MeToo), kente ties and sashes (because of Trump's Africa insult), butterfly stickers (for the "dreamers"), red buttons (for a victim of racial crime), and the more bipartisan purple ribbons (for the opioid epidemic)".

Having the last name of Trump has resulted in harassment for one DE 6th-grader - but now he's accepting an invite from the president who shares his name. "I'm exhausted of the bullying", Joshua said.

Post the show, Adam Levine took to Instagram and wrote an emotional post about the opportunity of getting to perform at the SBHTS. Levine said of his band's decision to perform despite the calls to boycott, " No one thought about it more than I did".

That prompted Pelosi to send another letter to the president, this time more forceful in her language. Numerous newly elected lawmakers are determined to impeach Trump and hold firm against the sort of border wall spending, a symbolic red line for many in the party.

Trump's speech also will offer an olive branch to opponents as he looks toward the 2020 election, targeting areas he sees for potential bipartisan agreement, such as infrastructure improvements, lowering prescription drug costs and healthcare. His remarks will come 10 days before he must strike a deal with congressional Democrats to avert another partial government shutdown.

President Trump will deliver the State of the Union on Tuesday.

"I'm looking forward to attending and hearing the president reflect on the great strides our nation has made over the past two years and his vision for the challenges still before us", McConnell said on the Senate floor this morning. They will sit with first lady Melania Trump during the address.

Trump later took to Twitter, saying he was "still thinking" about the speech and indicating he was prepared to give the speech in the House regardless of Pelosi's urging.

The young boy is passionate about science and animals, who have been invited by the president, according to a statement released by the White House.
