'We will build a human wall if necessary' at southern border

President Trump: Democrats do nothing to secure border, national emergency still possible

President Trump is scheduled to deliver his second State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

The president, first lady, and the 535 members of Congress are permitted to invite guests to the annual speech, a key fixture in the American political calendar which sees the USA leader tout their successes and outline goals.

With the budget deadline approaching and Democrats refusing to compromise on funding for a border wall, President Trump is promising to secure the border by sending thousands more soldiers in lieu of an actual barrier. Instead, he urged Democrats and Republicans to find a compromise by a February 15 deadline.

"To every Republican: If you don't stand behind this president, we're not going to stand behind you when it comes to the wall", Graham said. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who won plaudits from Democrats for her hard-line negotiating tactics during the shutdown, will be seated behind the president - a visual reminder of Trump's political opposition. That deal did not include money for the wall. He renewed his call for a border wall and cast illegal immigration as a threat to Americans' safety and economic security. But the president said his outreach to Pyongyang had made the US safer.

He said, "The only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations" an apparent swipe at the special counsel investigation into ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as the upcoming congressional investigations.

His remarks came as Democrats who now control the House planned a series of probes into the Trump administration and his personal finances, while Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller investigates Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

"It has never been his preferred option", she said.

"I will get it built", he said firmly, to cheers from Republicans and silence from Democrats. They sat with Mrs. Trump during the address. "It was pablum, without specifics", said Tim Ghriskey, chief investment strategist at Inverness Counsel in NY. Prior to the advent of television and radio, past presidents submitted a written address, rather than giving a speech before Congress.

India's Predicted Playing XI for 1st T20I against New Zealand
The manner in which the Kiwi batsmen face Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal would effectively decide the fate of the series. On the other hand, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and all-rounder Krunal Pandya will join the Indian squad for the T20Is.

Many Democratic women lawmakers wore white to celebrate 100 years of women having gained the right to vote. "This is the defining moment of his presidency". It is expected to be either in Hanoi or Da Nang. He will also give an update on trade talks with the Chinese. Her top spokesman fired back Friday as excerpts of the pre-Super Bowl interview surfaced, criticizing what he called Trump's "recklessness" that led to the recent 35-day partial government shutdown.

IS militants have lost territory since Trump's surprise announcement in December that he was pulling USA forces out, but military officials warn the fighters could regroup within six months to a year after the Americans leave.

Republican senator John Cornyn said he remains hopeful Congress can resolve the dispute.

The student from DE, who is not related to the president, made news previous year after his parents described how other children would chant his surname on the school bus.

This could include infrastructure improvements, lowering prescription drug costs and healthcare.

On the domestic front, Trump is expected to speak about the US's robust economy and job growth. After Pelosi and the lawmakers made a decision to fly commercial instead, the Trump administration denied them military support and instructed them to get permission from Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House Chief of Staff. Pelosi called this a "complete violation of separation of powers". "Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards".

Another Democratic star, Stacey Abrams, will deliver the party's response to Mr Trump. Democrats now hold a majority in the House. New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez teased the announcement of her guest, Ana Maria Archila, in a Twitter post, showing a pin she bought for Archila that reads "Well-behaved women rarely make history".
