Trump to press border wall fight in State of the Union speech

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He in the Oval Office at the White House

He's expected to deliver a bipartisan message themed around "choosing greatness", while outlining what the White House calls a "policy agenda both parties can rally behind".

Mr Trump and his top aides have also hinted that he is likely to use the address to announce a major milestone in the fight against the Islamic State group in Syria.

The State of the Union address is a speech that the President of the United States gives every year to politicians and the American people. The televised responses began in 1966.

Conway expects the same Tuesday night, with her boss sometimes going off script "for emphasis".

How did we get here?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who won plaudits from Democrats for her hard-line negotiating tactics during the shutdown, will be seated behind the president.

But that's where "business as usual" stopped.

"We see this as the most likely outcome because despite reaching a stopgap agreement, President Trump and congressional Democrats remain fundamentally at odds over border security appropriations but will likely seek to avoid a further shutdown", the report stated.

Pelosi's husband, Paul, and one of her five children, the filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi, will also join. A month-long government shutdown failed to dislodge Democratic lawmakers from their insistence that Trump would get his wall over their dead bodies.

Hartley said Marks' and Pease's son was placed into protective custody in 2009 and he doesn't know the son's current location. He has not been charged in the deaths of Scott and Swearingin, who were reported missing from Temple on January 4.

Will the border wall dispute lead to another shutdown-or a national emergency?

The back-and-forth escalated from there, with Pelosi's office accusing the White House of leaking the delegation's plans to complete the trip via commercial travel. House Republicans stripped King of his committee seats and some called on him to resign.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer seems to have triggered Trump's Twitter complaint.

White House officials confirmed as much, telling NPR they requested a security walk-through as though the speech would still take place on January 29.

The president is unlikely to win that fight with Pelosi. And White House officials have indicated Trump is not expected to declare a national emergency during his Tuesday evening address.

The speech was delayed for a week because of the shutdown, which ended on January 25.

But Washington's most recent debate offered few signs of cooperation between Trump and Democrats.

Re, Trump's wall, I'm not against better control of border crossings but Trump is pushing one solution and not even considering if there's a better way. Who's there to watch.

Sen. Kamala Harris is bringing Trisha Pesiri-Dybvik, a Southern California woman who lost her home in one of 2018's bad series of wildfires and who, along with her husband, was furloughed as air traffic controllers during the recent government shutdown. Seen as a rising star within the Democratic Party after her 2018 gubernatorial campaign, she's considered a possible challenger to Georgia GOP Sen. It's still an open question whether Trump caved to Democrats pressure on reopening the government last month because he wanted the SOTU so badly or whether the SOTU is happening because he retreated to avoid public anger.
