Lawmaker throws shade at DeVos over State of the Union ticket typo

  • Mark Ruffalo Alyssa Milano and Michael Moore are among the more than a dozen celebrities who are uniting to upstage Trump's first State of the Union Address

Democrats, many of whom wore white to last year's address in protest of Trump, have said they plan to wear black, echoing Hollywood's TimesUp movement and drawing attention to allegations about the president's own past behavior. Drew Ferguson (R-GA), as he said back home in his district, the tax cut plan is already helping spur new investment and job creation.

Nearly eight hours before the speech, some lawmakers were already staking out a seat on the House floor, trying to make sure they could be in position to shake President Trump's hand as he arrives for his speech, his first official "State of the Union".

"This has been the most chaotic, divisive, and incompetent first year of any administration and I will not sit and watch as Trump pretends that he's off to a successful start".

"We didn't agree on anything", Durbin said after a meeting with Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill on Monday.

Dozens of young immigrants will be sitting in the House gallery overlooking the president as he speaks.

The official demurred when asked if the speech will get into specifics on infrastructure, adding that "accompanying materials to flesh out various aspects of the speech" will be sent afterward.

What will Mr. Trump say at the State of the Union?

Trump's demeanor on Tuesday night will matter as much - or more than - his words. Trump's tone will be as important as the speech's content.

Trump's address is scheduled for Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST.

As with other State of the Union addresses, Trump's speech will look to put a face on the issues it addresses by inviting certain people to attend the remarks along with first lady Melania Trump.

The White House has spent weeks crafting the State of the Union speech, seeking input from Cabinet heads and agency leaders. In particular, the President will invite someone affected by the opioid crisis. "The question is whether he has the discipline to turn his words into policies that help the American people — and when hell set off another counterproductive Twitter firestorm about something like Russian Federation, the National Football League, or Bruno Mars at the Grammys".

"My analysis, however, is that my highest contribution - in these extraordinary times and circumstances where President Trump is himself breaking all established precedents to serve very narrow and self-serving interests - is to stand up to declare that I profoundly disagree with his approach and his unacceptable behavior", Jayapal wrote.
