Trump Tells Americans Something “Exciting” Will Happen During His SOTU

President Trump is telling Americans to listen closely to the State of The Union Address because something “exiting” will happen.

His comments came, after being asked if he will declare an emergency to build his border security wall.

The AP reported that President Donald Trump heads into his State of the Union address dogged by bruising midterm losses and sinking poll numbers, wounded by a blistering standoff with Democrats. But for the stately speech, he plans to embrace unity — at least for the night.

“Choosing Greatness” is the official White House theme.

Addressing the nation at the weakest point of his presidency, Trump will seek to use the ceremonial moment to pitch a unifying vision and reset relations with Democrats. The prime-time presidential set-piece Tuesday night comes amid a bitter border wall fight that nearly derailed the speech altogether, but Trump is not expected to dwell on the rancor.

“I really think it’s going to be a speech that’s going to cover a lot of territory, but part of it’s going to be unity,” Trump told reporters this week.

President Donald Trump appeared to suggest Friday that he will announce some kind of border wall action during next week’s State of the Union.

Asked if he expects to declare a national emergency on the wall funding issue, Trump told reporters: “I don’t want to say it, but you’ll hear the State of the Union, and then you’ll see what happens right after the State of the Union.”
“(W)e’re going to make a big step in the next week or so, prior to my doing anything, but actually having a national emergency does help the process,” he added later, speaking at a White House anti-human-trafficking event.
Asked again if a national emergency should be expected, the President said: “I think there’s a good chance that we’ll have to do that. But we will at the same time be building, regardless, we’re building a wall. And we’re building a lot of wall. But I can do it a lot faster the other way.”
“Well, I’m saying listen closely to the State of the Union. I think you’ll find it very exciting,” Trump said.
Trump had made similar comments in a New York Times interview published Thursday.
“I’ll continue to build the wall and we’ll get the wall finished,” he told the Times. “Now whether or not I declare a national emergency — that you’ll see.”
The State of the Union date, February 5, precedes a three-week government deadline of February 15 to reach a deal on border security to avoid another government shutdown.
