"Unites" and "lifting up" are not often terms used to describe a first year in office in which Trump has frequently used demeaning nicknames to describe his critics, and in which he recently boasted of besting Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer in a government shutdown showdown.

"If a Democrat President in eight years achieved what my father has done in one year, media and the left would be heralding it as 'historic, monumental, and unprecedented, '" Donald Trump Jr., tweeted Sunday.

This year's overarching theme: Trump will say that under his leadership, American is becoming "safe, strong and proud".

For any president, the prime-time speech is a high-stakes statement of objective.

Last year, 125 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty and more than 200 were wounded and McDonald said President Trump understands the sacrifices police officers make. It will focus on the economy, infrastructure, immigration, trade, and national security. The president is expected to unveil some new policy proposals, though the official would not elaborate on what those would be.

That's the part of the speech envisioned by the Constitution, which requires the president to give an annual report to Congress and "recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient". Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., said she won't attend because of Trump's "racist" behavior; and Supreme CourtJustice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who went to all of President Barack Obama's speeches, won't attend, along with justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, who usually skip the event.

"Companies are giving raises and bonuses and the economy is flying high since the tax cut".

Maha govt machinery responsible for farmer's death: Shiv Sena
Congress leader Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil said the farmer died due to "the government apathy and the anti-farmer policies". Except us, everybody in our neighbourhood whose land had been acquired was given higher compensation.

The 28th president also upended the order that had existed throughout most of the 19th century, in which most policy-making began with Congress. Such an effort could draw bipartisan support, but has so far lacked specifics.

But when the hall of the House of Representatives opens and the sergeant-at-arms booms, "Mr. Speaker, the President of the United States", the eyes of the world turn to a single man and all distractions are put aside.

And he was not the only congressman to take aim. Oddly enough, he's on firmer turf than one might think, when his rollout of a plan that could put almost 2 million illegal immigrants on the road to legal status is duly considered.

The White House also wants $25 billion for Trump's proposed Southern border wall and other border security measures, along with an end to the visa lottery system and changes to policies by which immigrants legally in the USA are allowed to sponsor extended family members.

Against the backdrop of the spending fight, Republicans and Democrats are also wrestling with the future of some 700,000 young immigrants living in the United States illegally. "They may think that our belief in true participatory democracy is waning, that we are complacent, that we are distracted, that we are just too beaten down from this horror show year we've had and the sickening prospect of three more like it", the actress continued. About half of the US territory still doesn't have the power back on.

Trump pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal when he came to the White House.
