WH Unveils 2019 SOTU Theme: "Choosing Greatness"

"I think the Democrats don't want border security".

Democrats are also preparing for the possibility of interrupting the president to make their opposition known - something House Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said Trump shouldn't be surprised by.

A senior administration official told reporters on Friday that "choosing greatness" will be the theme for the February 5 address, which will outline a "policy agenda both parties can rally behind".

Trump's speech had been scheduled for January 29, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called it off because the shutdown was underway, leading to an angry response from the president, who denied her and several other Democrats access to a military plane to visit USA troops in Afghanistan.

Trump has also suggested he might use the occasion to make news on his upcoming second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and he told reporters at the White House on Friday to "listen closely" for news about his continued fight to build a wall on the southern border.

Nissan scraps new SUV launch for Sunderland plant
Nissan said back in 2016 that the X-Trail SUV auto would be produced on Wearside after receiving assurances from the Government. He said: "Twenty years ago we had these awful , blood-curdling threats about Nissan in Sunderland if we didn't join the Euro".

"Together we can break decades of political stalemate", Trump plans to say, according to an excerpt of his prepared remarks offered by a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The president has suggested that the Islamic State has largely been defeated, but national security analysts say the group remains a potent threat in the region.

Asked if Trump would acknowledge the shutdown in his speech, the administration official said the president will "definitely talk about immigration and about where we are in that debate and present a path forward".

Presidential historian Douglas Brinkley says Tuesday's speech will be a "high-drama moment" for Trump. He will list what he sees as the dangers of illegal immigration and discuss his efforts to revise trade deals, including the updated agreement with Canada and Mexico.

- Lowering sky-high prescription medicine costs. And he will discuss military efforts around the world, stressing his interest in ending USA engagement in foreign wars.

For those looking to tune on Tuesday evening, the official said the speech's length will be comparable to last year's State of the Union, which was just nine minutes shy of setting a record as the longest in history. Mr. Trump told reporters Thursday the date and location for his second meeting with North Korea have been selected. "The decision is ours to make". He added that after Clinton's losses in the 1994 midterm elections, his State of the Union speeches were "much more conciliatory". Stacey Abrams, the former Democratic leader of the the Georgia House of Representatives, will be offering the Democratic rebuttal. "I think there's a good chance we'll have to do that". "And he should not be surprised that there is an opposite reaction", Hoyer said.
