Trump’s 2019 State of the Union: What Investors Should Watch

Mr Trump's guests for the speech include Anna Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old woman whose life sentence for drug offences was commuted by the president, and Joshua Trump, a sixth-grade student from Wilmington, Delaware, who was allegedly bullied because of his last name.

Pelosi held firm on her stance for no border wall funding and, after the longest shutdown in American history, Trump caved and reopened the government for three weeks while negotiations on border security funding continue.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who won plaudits from Democrats for her hard-line negotiating tactics during the shutdown, will be seated behind the president.

Re, Trump's wall, I'm not against better control of border crossings but Trump is pushing one solution and not even considering if there's a better way.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway told reporters February 4 that the president had the "absolute right to declare a national emergency".

The shutdown began when Trump demanded $5.7 billion for his border wall and Democrats refused to offer more than $1.3 billion for border security.

Asked about the state of the union compared with a year ago, 50 percent of Americans said it's worse, 28 percent said it's better and 22 percent said it's about the same. That was about the time Donald J. Trump became president...

"One thing you will see is that the chamber is full and the president is surrounded by women, by people of color, by individuals who have really been hurt by this president and numerous actions that he has taken", Jayapal said.

Hopefully, a State of the Union invite from the president himself will ease some of Joshua's pain.
