Trump Sends Out Another Tweet on Border Wall

Adjust Comment Print

The Americans invited to sit with the first lady during the State of the Union on Tuesday night provide a window into the various themes the president will touch on during his annual address.

None are words typically associated with the 45th chief executive, who once stood outside the Capitol and spoke about "American carnage" during his Inauguration address.

As protocol dictates, the president will be flanked on one side by Pelosi, a California Democrat often disparaged by Republicans.

He said the American people know Mr Trump's economy was "failing our middle class" and the United States healthcare system was "failing American families".

Sharing a surname with the president may have caused the boy pain in the past, but he is now being recognized for it. Andres heads a charity that began in 2010 to feed quake survivors in Haiti and that offered free food and coffee to furloughed workers during the partial government shutdown. But Democrats aren't the only ones who are troubled by Trump's threat of an emergency declaration.

Earlier this week, Trump sent out another tweet on the subject.

Asked on Tuesday if Trump would use the speech to announce an emergency, White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said the president "has an absolute right to do it" but would prefer that lawmakers forge a solution.


"Transgender service members like Lieutenant Commander Dremann make extraordinary sacrifices every day to defend our freedom and our most sacred values, and President Trump's decision to ban them from military service is cruel and undermines our military readiness", she said in a statement.

A senior administration official said Trump would "encourage Congress to reject the politics of resistance and retribution, and instead adopt a spirit of cooperation and compromise so we can achieve it". "They're going to need to decide if they're serious about that, as well".

While White House officials cautioned that Mr Trump's remarks were still being finalised, the president was expected to use some of his televised address to showcase a growing economy.

Pelosi said there would not be any money for the border wall in the legislation being negotiated by a bipartisan committee.

She has shown no sign of budging from her opposition to Trump's wall-funding demand. It will be interesting to see if Trump mentions the trade war and how easy it is proving to win it. "He's going to lay out the case".

"Still, knowing this president and his penchant for hyperbole, he will probably say the state of our union is stronger than it's ever been before in our nation's long history thanks to him", Schumer continued. And when it comes to the president's requested $5.7 billion in border wall funding, he's hit a brick wall of naysayers.

"I think he should focus on what has to happen".


"Democrats. voted and supported building a wall and putting a barrier on our border". In her letter, Pelosi cited "security concerns", as the U.S. Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security were both affected by the shutdown. In short, the government might have re-opened, but little has changed.

The president and first lady also invited three family members of Gerald and Sharon David of Reno, Nevada, who were killed in January 2019 by an illegal immigrant.

That suggests he still has a steep hill to climb at a time when most Americans still blame him and congressional Republicans for the shutdown.

But there are other topics that might keep Republicans in their seats.

As far as unity is concerned, Trump has made the call before but his idea of unity is that everyone must simply fall in line behind him.

She, along with millions of people, will watch as Trump gives his address before a divided Congress.
