It comes less than a day before the U.S. Senate is scheduled to vote on two articles of impeachment against him. President Trump is expected to talk about a range of issues Tuesday night in his State of the Union address. Expect to hear about immigration and an improving economy. 

“The economy is going fantastic and everyone has to love that even if you hate the president you got to love the way the country is working right now,” said Tom Wright of Longmeadow. “I’m looking forward to hearing what he has to say.” 

Trump is also expected to talk about phase one trade deal with China, national security, and lowering the cost of health care. 

Paul Robbins at Paul Robbins Associates Strategic Communications told 22News, “I would expect trump will talk about things he knows is important health care, maybe a middle-class tax cut. The issues Democrats care about global warming, things like that I don’t think we will hear. Teeing up the 2020 election is what I would expect to hear tonight.” 

Robbins added that the State of the Union address continues to attract a very large television audience. According to a recent Gallup Poll, President Trump’s approval rating hit the highest level of his presidency, at 49 percent.  

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer will deliver the Democratic response to trumps’ speech.
