2. Infrastructure: President Trump will call for a $1 trillion infrastructure plan.

3. Immigration: The president will focus on securing our border, providing legal status for DACA recipients, and moving the country to a merit-based entry system.

4. Trade: Advisors say the president will insist on fair trade that benefits all countries involved and will detail how cutting regulations can help Americans innovate.

5. National Security: The president will explain why he wants to rebuild our military, achieve peace through strength, and defeat terrorism.

The White House tells us the president and first lady plan to invite several guests to the speech, including our nation’s service members and first responders.

Rep. Joseph Kennedy III (D-MA) will deliver the Democrats' response to President Trump’s State of the Union Address.
