Trump Makes Last Appeal for Wall Funding in State of Union Address

Trump Makes Last Appeal for Wall Funding in State of Union Address

"It's really quite a sad thing when you know that we'll be talking about something that applies to the health and life - health and ability to have other children of women", she said when asked by The Daily Caller.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who asked Abrams to deliver the Democrats' response, said earlier Tuesday that she "is going to do a great job" and billed Trump as the warm-up act for her.

IS militants have lost territory since Trump's surprise announcement in December that he was pulling US forces out, but military officials warn the fighters could regroup within six months to a year of the Americans leaving.

Trump is staring down a two-year stretch that will determine whether he is re-elected or leaves office in defeat.

Trump seemed to have unintentionally given them the opening to gloat.

The night started off on the wrong foot between the speaker and the president after Trump gave Pelosi, his official host for the annual speech, the cold shoulder.

In his speech, Trump also planned to announce details of a second meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, outlining a summit on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam, according to his prepared remarks.

Standing straight up, the House Speaker aimed her applause directly at the President - with her eyebrows sarcastically raised.

When Trump arrived at the lectern, he blew through the moment at which Pelosi was to introduce him to the chamber, as is customary.

Trump was not expected to use his speech to announce plans for a national emergency, which would draw a swift court challenge from Democrats. He also again called for bipartisan measures to rebuild "America's crumbling infrastructure" and to curb the cost of prescription drugs.

Ms Pelosi, the de facto leader of the Democrats who has refused to grant funds for Trump's wall at the Mexican border, sat relatively still while her political rival addressed Congress.

Pelosi emerged the victor when Trump reopened the government without funding for his border wall - meeting her demand to end the shutdown for negotiations on border security to continue. "This is wrong, unfair, and together we can stop it", Trump will say. "We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America's future". If a new pact was not agreed, he said the U.S. She said in her televised speech, "Let's be clear: Voter suppression is real".

In excerpts released ahead of Abrams' remarks, she calls the shutdown a political stunt that "defied every tenet of fairness and abandoned not just our people, but our values". However, women are slightly more likely than men to say abortion is a "critical issue" to them, according to 2018 polling from the Public Religion Research Institute.

The Republican-led Senate this week broke with Trump on Syria and Afghanistan, passing a largely symbolic resolution that opposed a "precipitous withdrawal", insisting militants in both countries still pose a threat to the U.S.

During an off-the-record lunch for television anchors on Tuesday before the speech, Trump offered scathing assessments of a number of leading Democrats, including some lining up to run against him next year.

Top Democrats praised Abrams's response to Trump's address.
