Sparring over the president's proposed border wall led to a record 35-day partial shutdown of the federal government over Congress' inability to pass a spending package that included the funds he has claimed is necessary to build his wall along the southern border.
Trump is making his second State of the Union address with a new backdrop: for the first time a Democratic Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi of California, will be looking over Trump's shoulder as he speaks in the House chamber of the U.S. Capitol.
Pelosi and Trump have repeatedly clashed in recent weeks. Trump's approval rating sank steadily during the shutdown, as opinion polls showed more Americans blamed him than Democrats for the impasse that resulted in 800,000 federal workers being furloughed or forced to work without pay. He said the US has "the hottest economy anywhere in the world". Democrats have refused to acquiesce to his demands for a border wall, and Republicans are increasingly unwilling to shut down the government to help him fulfill his signature campaign pledge.
"Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country", he concluded, to widespread applause. The U.S. economy added 2.6 million jobs in 2018, the highest figure since 2015.
Heard on the Hill suspects that route was out of habit for Trump Jr., given that Paul Ryan inhabited that office when Republicans controlled the House.
Trump has also announced plans to withdraw the 2,000 US troops from Syria, saying Islamic State has largely been defeated there.
Trump will speak about the future of the ongoing conflicts overseas in Syria and Afghanistan.
"I'm disappointed by the president's approach to our problems", she said.
"Tonight, Donald Trump spoke of "choosing greatness" but there is nothing great about his administration's repeated choices to abandon USA leadership in the global fight against climate change, to eliminate vital protections for public lands and to roll back the clean air and water safeguards that make our communities safe and healthy places to live", said League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski, who attended the speech as a guest of New York Congressman Paul Tonko, in a statement.
