You know. But the remarks a script to do unifying and bipartisan and the big question is to what extent the President may choose to stick to or depart from the teleprompter traditionally with the State of the Union they stick pretty close to the script , but this is not a traditional presidents and .
Notably , speaking of not a traditional President President Trump has not tweeted today. We do expect that tonight . He’s going to talk about the tax cut measure that was passed with only Republican votes . It is you know and talk about re-strengthen the economy and immigration and infrastructure is too big items that he wants to push in 2018 .

When an hour in about an hour. White House officials say and some of the excerpts that have been released tonight include this quote tonight item extending an open hand to work with members of both parties . Democrats and Republicans to protect our citizens of every background color and creed , what will be interesting , will be to see whether that speech at unity and bipartisanship is followed by policies unity and I party .
Yes some it’s tweeted out the next day. We’re also watching people there are making their politics clear even to what they wear some Democratic members of Congress with women female lawmakers are wearing black , that is in solidarity with the meat you movement .
There also members of Congress who were wearing blue purple ribbons tonight showing support for victims of the opioid crisis.
South , a lot of choices being conveyed through their wardrobe and as we watch people filtering into the House. We should also mention one member of the cabinet who will not be there . This is the great designated survivor .
Tonight , Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue in addition to the President‘s speech. Of course we’re going to be covering the response . The Democratic response from Congressman Joe Kennedy who’s gonna be speaking tonight from Fall River , Massachusetts and the exurbs that we’ve been given from his speech include this striking line bullies may land a punch . They might leave a mark but they have never , not once in the history of our United States managed to match the strength and spirit of a people united in defense of their future Mary Louise Arbour explicitly calling the President a fully there .
Yes. In everything but name . I think we know who he set his sights on that were here . The President is very close to the chamber . About to step into the room and then of course I’ll straighten out of his way down the aisle shaking hands meeting and greeting supporters and foes as he makes his way up and a .
And standing behind a lectern where the President will be delivering his speech is House Speaker Paul Ryan and vice President Mike Pence. Some people in the past have made sport of watching facial expression settled .
Noted on camera for a law periods Brong at home. If you know .
I mean , you know , we will let you know. And of course , well you’re listening to this broadcast . We will also have live real time fact checks of the President‘s speech at and we are Darfur . You can have a multi-platform exterior .

They’re still members of the cabinet , mingling , and Chad and with members of the House and Senate. We’re told that President Trump is in the vestibule he will be announced shortly . His family is standing waiting for his entrance with his hounds things .
You could see the significance. The President . You can watch House .
Members of the Republican leadership Senator Mitch McConnell Kentucky walking in with the President and NPR’s Mara Liasson is here with us tomorrow what you expecting to hear tonight.
Confessing I’m expecting to hear the President strike a lot of bipartisan notes , I’m expecting to hear the President make a 180 degree pivot from American carnage too. This is the greatest as he but said the new American moment there’s never been a better time to start living the American dream American forms of course the phrase from from Denmark real address where he painted a very bleak apocalyptic vision of America now everything’s great because of all the things that he’s done the tax cut that is passed , so I . And what’s interesting to me is , first of all , obviously if you can be part of this teleprompter , although we’ve seen President from if that’s food delivered teleprompter speeches before but also what impact it’ll happen for a President who communicates directly with millions and millions of people every day . It’s not every hour . This used to be the biggest chance of President got . But the biggest audience for this President . It’s not .
I want to bring in our congressional correspondent Susan Davis who is there at Congress on Capitol Hill. Sue tell me where exactly why would .
Should be when we can see. And I’m sitting inside the House chamber when you’re watching the President on television . I’m essentially right above him in over his left shoulder , had a fairly strong view the chamber and the first family was the crisis rate by the President . The first lady and his children today . What’s going on with the first family . They look fabulous . Well , I mean it’s bad out of the way up for . I’ve been very clear the first leaking into a very warm welcome reception here tonight . I thought everyone get on their feet , it might be a bit different than her husband’s reception tonight President Trump it’s addressing a congress right now that is incredibly divided incredibly polarized and on the issue of the day on immigration , there is a real hunger in this room from both Republicans and Democrats . You’re the President make for his immigration proposal and an argument . For the lawmakers here so why they should vote for . As he makes his way to the front of room chicken fans with military leadership and with members of the Supreme Court , there’s gonna be a very real deadline . I mean that’s just February ABC . We can see in the very short term whether this has an impact on bipartisanship on , absolutely , and I will tell you part of the mood here tonight is we have a lot of Democrats who have brought their gas people who are residing in the country illegally . The so-called dreamers to children affected by this immigration legislation that Congress is trying to pass and they had at Arizona Congressman Pablo side today suggest the Capitol police should arrest , then you know they work to extend to come into the capital . The , this should mention the President has arrived at the front of the chamber of the shaken hands with his vice President‘s focus of and so Speaker of the House .
We got here , he’s now flooding the crowd that Federer if deadline we should say.
