Trump Invites Bullied Student, Synagogue Shooting Survivors to State of the Union

Think Trump’s State of the Union will move public opinion? Don’t count on

The White House tonight announced several special guests attending the State of the Union at the Capitol tomorrow. The appearance will be shadowed by the threat of another government shutdown.

A steadily increasing number of Republican lawmakers are urging the president against a national emergency declaration, anxious about its legality and setting a precedent of future - including Democratic - presidents doing so when they are unable to convince Congress to approve a top agenda item.

The president is expected to press his case for a border wall with Mexico. "They're going to need to decide if they're serious about that, as well". "It doesn't pass the smell test". "He is thankful to the First Lade and the Trump family for their support".

The very timing of the speech underscores the rancor in the room.

Earlier this week, Trump sent out another tweet on the subject. He's teased the possibility of declaring a national emergency to secure wall funding if Congress doesn't act, though it appeared unlikely he would take that step Tuesday night. He could provide more signals of his intentions during his speech.

Sen. Kamala Harris is bringing Trisha Pesiri-Dybvik, a Southern California woman who lost her home in one of 2018's awful series of wildfires and who, along with her husband, was furloughed as air traffic controllers during the recent government shutdown.

It's safe to bet that Democrats seated opposite her place behind Trump will be looking to her for cues for their reactions, as well. That's not to make light of the bullying Joshua has experienced, but it does emphasize where the Trumps' real concerns lie: squarely with themselves.

Chelsea boss Sarri again questions players after defeat
The former England defender pointed the finger at Sarri's misfiring players, saying: "There are not enough scrappers in the team". And Chelsea fans will be growing wary at Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. "It is very tight".

Sunday, Trump said he could call for a national emergency, bypassing Congress to fund the wall, which could spark legal challenges. "This is the defining moment of his presidency". The president told Republicans to be prepared to take every effort to tackle the influx of drugs, crime, and human smuggling into the U.S. He'll urge Democrats to focus on working with him on legislation instead of pursuing investigations of his business and administration.

Congressional Democrats, for their part, say the state of our union now provides a flawless opportunity for some live-trolling of the president via special invited guests.

Last December, Joshua and his family made headlines after his parents, Megan Trump Berto and Bobby Berto chose to go public with their story.

Conway - and the rest of the politically interested world - will be watching the speaker throughout what aides say will be a slightly shorter address than the previous two Trump has delivered in the House chamber. Despite the objections of some advisers, Trump announced in December that he was withdrawing U.S. forces in Syria. And his public disputes with his own intelligence chiefs over his assessments of global threats may undercut Americans' confidence as he prepares for a second summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un at the end of this month.

Leaders of Congress from both parties, however, consistently fare even worse in national polls. For the Democrats in the audience, who don't have a speaking role, that will come down to atmospherics.

Pelosi is also inviting the new president of Planned Parenthood, a former undocumented immigrant, and a DC chef who's been an advocate for immigrant rights. Pelosi has maintained unity among disparate congressional Democrats.

The shutdown left some Republicans frustrated over his insistence on a border wall, something they warned him the new Democratic House majority would not bend on. But they had plenty to say about Trump's new top political foe, Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and her fellow Democrats.
