Trump to call for unity, face skepticism in State of Union

039;Thousands' more children separated from parents at US border in 2017-18

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.

Trump has been flirting since at least the 14th day of the shutdown with the idea of funding a wall by declaring a national emergency and using his authority to divert funds already appropriated by Congress for things like disaster relief.

"I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the President's State of the Union address in the House Chamber until government has opened", she wrote.

Speaking to Reuters news agency, a source close to Trump said the president will urge a congressional committee to work out a border security deal by the time government funding runs dry again in 10 days.

"It's been more than two years since the American people hired President Trump and a Republican Congress to get Washington's foot off the brake of our economy".

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. Even Trump's staunchest allies know that bipartisan rhetoric read off of a teleprompter is usually undermined by scorching tweets and unpredictable policy maneuvers.

Still, the fact that Mr Trump's advisers feel a need to try a different approach is a tacit acknowledgement that the president's standing is weakened as he begins his third year in office. But given that it's an issue where Trump now holds a comparatively weak hand, he'll be best served by getting through it quickly and focusing on his administration's greatest concrete success: the strong USA economy. 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 also appealed for unity in much of his address past year - only to revert to his attacks against Democrats, on Twitter and elsewhere, within days of the speech.

It disappeared around 8:30 pm local time, about 13 kilometers (8 miles) northwest of the island of Alderney. The plane had requested to descend before it lost contact with Jersey air traffic control.

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

That prompted Pelosi to send another letter to the president, this time more forceful in her language.

Unlike Gallup's broad samples, which draw from all American adults, Rasmussen surveyers accept responses only from self-described "likely voters.' It's the only 'likely voter" national poll on Trump to be published since mid-November.

First Lady Melania Trump's "Be Best" initiative focuses in part on preventing and helping children deal with bullying, particularly in online spaces.

The President and first lady's guest list features family members of an elderly couple killed by illegal immigrants and the father of a seaman killed in the U.S.S. Cole attack. "The state of the Trump Administration is chaos".

"While in prison, Matthew found God, completed more than 30 bible studies, became a law clerk, taught GED classes, and mentored fellow inmates", the White House said in a press release.

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.
