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 United States southern border.

Asked about the president's State of the Union address tonight, Sanders said observers would have to wait and see on the content of the speech, but on border security she pledged that the president is "not gonna stop until we fix this problem". So the reality TV fake-out is all Trump has left.

Trump's guest list suggests that the White House has not backed off its main obsession, which is convincing Americans to buy the racist myth that masses of brown people are streaming across the border to rape and kill them. He's reduced federal taxes and regulations, 304,000 jobs were added to the U.S. economy last month, unemployment is at a 50-year low, and there are now more jobs available than there are people to fill them.

"I'm for whatever works that prevents the level of dysfunction we've seen on full display here the last month, and also doesn't bring about a view on the president's part that he needs to declare a national emergency,"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters last week".

The source said Mr Trump would discuss troop drawdowns in Syria and Afghanistan and that about half the speech would be devoted to foreign policy. "We'll be at 100". As I wrote last month, Congress has the power to overrule presidential emergency declarations: Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi would no doubt relish the chance to put every congressional Republican on the record either against Trump or against their supposed small-government principles.

Before the speech even begins, the White House is working to coordinate and shape the media's response to it.

USA 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. Almost two-thirds, 64 percent, of Americans do not think the president and Congress are likely to reach a deal. According to the Pentagon, the group is still able to coordinate offensives and counteroffensives. That's because Trump likely will describe his time in office as, in the words of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday, "two of the most successful years under a first-term president". One that is expected to be announced is a new initiative aimed at ending transmissions of HIV by 2030. The youngest of the bunch, 11-year-old Joshua Trump, received a plus-one from the First Lady, because, as the White House states, "Joshua has been bullied in school due to his last name". Trump will not only be reaching out to the Bible Belt during his State of the Union address-he will also be trying to convince Rust Belt voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and OH that they need to support him again in 2020.
