Trump guests include freed drug offender, bullied student


A woman freed from federal prison after U.S. President Donald Trump cut short her life sentence for drug offences and a DE boy allegedly bullied because his last name is Trump headline a varied group of 13 guests who will sit with first lady Melania Trump for the State of the Union address. This is the first Trump SOTU in divided government, a reality that has put Trump in multiple awkward situations since November 2018, a situation he dislikes intensely and rages against privately.

As protocol dictates, the president will be flanked on one side by Pelosi, a California Democrat often disparaged by Republicans.

Donald Trump's job approval rating hit 48 per cent on Tuesday in a daily tracking poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports, the president's favorite polling organization.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said going into President Trump's second States of the Union address that the American people "are less interested in Beltway melodrama and more interested in that classic question: Am I better off than I was two years ago?"

President Donald Trump is expected to call for optimism and unity in his State of the Union address, but skeptics are likely to question whether he can be successful in pursuing such a reset after two years of bitter partisanship and personal attacks.

Scores of female House Democrats, for instance, are expected to wear white to show solidarity with suffragettes, echoing the black-clad representatives at last year's address.

Minutes later, Trump tweeted that Schumer was "just upset that he didn't win the Senate, after spending a fortune".

"Joshua Trump is a 6th grade student in Wilmington, Delaware", a statement read.

Bulls Waive Carmelo Anthony After Trading for Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot From Thunder
He's a career.385/.317/.829 shooter and offers little playmaking on the wing, averaging 0.9 assists per game for his career. Carmelo Anthony has been waived by the Chicago Bulls , making the 10-time All-Star forward a free agent.

Roy James was also invited to highlight a rare piece of major legislation passed under Trump, as his factory reopened due to the Republican tax plan, per the White House.

Trump also will claim success on economic policy, including cutting federal regulations, the source said. Andres heads a charity that began in 2010 to feed quake survivors in Haiti and that offered free food and coffee to furloughed workers during the partial government shutdown.

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.

President Trump said all options remain on the table to secure the U.S. -Mexico border.

"He's calling for cooperation", she said, adding that Mr Trump will point to examples of where this has happened on his watch. Trump granted her clemency in June. "He is thankful to the First Lady and the Trump family for their support".

The high likelihood that the speech will simply retread the main themes of the Trump administration - brown people are coming to kill you and Trump is entitled to obeisance - has made it tough for the White House to drum up much public or media interest in the speech.

"Still, knowing this president and his penchant for hyperbole, he will probably say the state of our union is stronger than it's ever been before in our nation's long history thanks to him", Schumer continued.
