Trump guests include freed drug offender, bullied student

Sixth-grader Joshua Trump has been invited to attend the State of the Union as an official guest of the president and First Lady, to be a symbol against bullying as the elder Trump likely uses his speech to bully immigrants and Democrats.

She has shown no sign of budging from her opposition to Mr Trump's wall-funding demand. Roberts and Kagan have never missed the State of the Union address since they've been on the court. 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.

While Trump was still putting the final touches on the speech Tuesday afternoon, he was expected to use some of his televised address to showcase a growing economy.

Trump is also expected to address several foreign policy issues, such as trade talks with China, pulling USA troops out of Syria and Afghanistan, a diplomatic drive with North Korea and a growing political crisis in Venezuela, among others.

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. She made her first public appearance since the surgery on Monday at a concert given by her daughter-in-law in Washington, D.C. Ginsburg did not attend Trump's speech a year ago, either. "He'll tell people, 'Here's why I should, ' but say, 'I'm giving Congress another chance to act'".

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

Trump also appealed for unity in much of his address a year ago - only to revert to his attacks against Democrats, on Twitter and elsewhere, within days of the speech. Those numbers are slightly worse for Trump's cause than when Gallup polled the same question last June and found 57 percent opposed and 41 percent in support.

Marcus had a great chance from Luke Shaw's cross and finished the ball fantastically well when Paul [Pogba] played him through. The England worldwide has nine Premier League goals this season and scored in five of his last six games in the competition.

"I take a back seat to nobody in decrying President Trump's cynical and divisive performance ... but the Democrats, with their childish protests, took the bait", Milbank complained. The state of Trump healthcare: failing American families.

Bullying prevention is a key element of an initiative Mrs. Trump named "Be Best".

With the budget deadline approaching and Democrats refusing to compromise on funding for a border wall, President Trump is promising to secure the border by sending thousands more soldiers in lieu of an actual barrier.

If he builds his State of the Union around the wall, he will be building it around an issue with little constituency outside the most pro-Trump factions of the Republican party.

Conway says Trump will also meet with guests the White House has invited to sit with first lady Melania Trump during the speech. But the administration doesn't need Nancy Pelosi's permission to carry on with regulatory reform, so look for Trump to lean into that in his speech.

"Joshua Trump is a 6th-grade student in Wilmington, Delaware", the White House said in a press release.
