The White House tonight announced several special guests attending the State of the Union at the Capitol tomorrow.

The very timing of the speech underscores the rancor in the room.

Most survey respondents - 73 percent - also said they want Trump to continue negotiating while keeping the government open, rather than forcing another shutdown when funding expires again in mid-February. He could provide more signals of his intentions during his speech.

The president is expected to dedicate a chunk of his address before Congress to championing a southern border wall, the main sticking point he's had with the Democrats since they took power in the House of Representatives. With numbers like that, it's not hard to see why Democrats were happy to wait Trump out during the shutdown and it's hard to see them doing anything different this time around.

Trump's approval rating stood at 40 percent, up from a recent dip to 37 percent in January, amid the longest government shutdown in the country's history, and up slightly from 39 percent before the shutdown, according to a CNN poll released Monday. "And this really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers", he said. Her requests for clemency had been rejected by President Barack Obama, who during eight years in office commuted the sentences of hundreds of federal inmates convicted of drug crimes.

Only 39 percent supported a shutdown for the wall, while 57 percent opposed it.

Over the weekend, he called on the army to allow in humanitarian aid from the United States via neighboring Colombia and Brazil. Most Lima Group members have said Maduro should quit in favour of Guaido and have called for a new election.

Section 284 also authorizes the president to deploy the USA military to the southern border to build fences to assist "counterdrug activities or activities to counter transnational organized crime".

"Washington right now looks a little bit petty and a little bit small and the State of the Union is an opportunity to go big and talk in broad themes about what's good about America and look beyond some of the issues of the last few weeks", he said.

While White House officials cautioned that Trump's remarks were still being finalized, the president was expected to use some of his televised address to showcase a growing economy. Despite the objections of some advisers, Mr Trump announced in December that he was withdrawing U.S. forces in Syria.

Pelosi's husband, Paul, and one of her five children, the filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi, will also join. And his public disputes with his own intelligence chiefs over his assessments of global threats may undercut Americans' confidence as he prepares for a second summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un at the end of this month.

The president is unlikely to win that fight with Pelosi. Democrats are calling on female lawmakers to wear suffragette white, providing another visual cue to highlight the historic number of women elected to Congress this November and the gender imbalance between the two parties. But they had plenty to say about Trump's new top political foe, Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and her fellow Democrats.
