Trump c span speech
President Donald Trump will have an off-the-record lunch with broadcast and cable news anchors on Tuesday, an annual White House tradition held on the afternoon of the State of the Union address. At these lunches, the president typically outlines that night's speech to anchors who are involved in coverage. PBS's Judy Woodruff, C-SPAN's Steve Scully, CBN News's David Brody, and Fox News’s Chris Wallace and Martha MacCallum are all expected to attend Tuesday's gathering, among others. Story Continued Below This lunch comes just weeks after Trump similarly dined with top news anchors at the White House.

President Donald Trump invited top establishment media news actors to lunch prior to his State of the Union address on Tuesday, the White House confirmed to Breitbart News.

After putting a good chunk of the federal government into sleep mode, then arm-wrestling with the Democrats as the partial government shutdown dragged its way into the history books, President Donald Trump not only has the nation’s attention for Tuesday night’s State of the Union address, he’s practically got America in a head lock. Moments like these seem custom-made for Trump. And since the annual address is the closest thing we have to the British Parliament’s opening ceremonies or the gun salute for the Queen’s birthday, the president will be milking this particular moment for all its worth. This, his second State of the Union address, is dripping with small bits of history: It will be Trump’s first speech to Congress with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi perched over his … [Read more...] about State of the Union: What time is Trump speaking tonight, and where can we watch?
President Donald Trump may be the most untraditional president in modern history, but he has taken a strikingly traditional approach to that most presidential of rituals — speaking to Congress. In each of the past two years, Trump has delivered a lofty, optimistic annual message on Capitol Hill, reading dutifully from a Teleprompter and setting aside his personal insults, attacks on the media, even his rambling boasts. Story Continued Below His aides are suggesting that this year will be much the same. But this year’s State of the Union Tuesday could present an especially jarring contrast with the realities of Trump’s presidency. Trump will speak amid a protracted battle with Congressional Democrats over his demand for $5.7 billion to build a Mexican border wall.In the days before the speech, Trump repeatedly slammed Democrats on Twitter. While the official said Trump would offer “a bipartisan way forward” on immigration, the president has dismissed talks … [Read more...] about Will the State of the Union be ‘Teleprompter Trump’ or ‘Twitter Trump’
