Things to Watch For at the State of the Union

Expect Republican members to shower him in applause and a few standing ovations as he speaks of what he calls a humanitarian and security "crisis", and when he drops some version of his "walls work" line.

Last year, when we crossed into the Trump era, you said the state of our union was "Wiemar Republic Part 2", "surreal", "exhausted", "incomprehensible", "covfefe", and much, much more.

Pelosi's husband, Paul, and one of her five children, the filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi, will also join.

The Democratic response to Trump will be delivered by Stacey Abrams, who excited interest from activists across the country in the fall when she was almost elected the U.S.'s first African-American woman state governor by voters in once-segregated Georgia. House Republicans stripped King of his committee seats and some called on him to resign.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, a Democrat popular for her progressive-leaning politics, reportedly plans to bring a sexual assault survivor who spoke out during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, himself accused of sexual assault.

Liberal media outlets, meanwhile, are already beating the war drums, calling for Democrats to "not give in to Trump's hateful speech".

"You'll hear the State of the Union, and then you'll see what happens right after the State of the Union", Trump told reporters.

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. "The state of the Trump administration is embroiled in chaos and incompetence".

President Donald Trump is belittling the Senate's top Democrat and complaining about the press hours ahead of a State of the Union address that the White House says will focus on unity and optimism. Republicans were more positive than Democrats, and 77 percent overall said Trump's policies are "a great deal" or "somewhat" responsible for the state of the economy, CBS said. Trump will not only be reaching out to the Bible Belt during his State of the Union address-he will also be trying to convince Rust Belt voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and OH that they need to support him again in 2020.
