First lady Melania Trump dons Dior for State of the Union

President Donald Trump delivers his State of the Union address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington

Trump's constant tweeting could quickly diminish the significance of his State of the Union speech.

"I thought this was a talk show, not a horror movie", she said as Kimmel read from the transcript of a 2011 In Touch magazine interview, only recently published and reportedly about the liaison.

In perhaps his clearest signal of contempt for the views of allies, Trump announced that he had signed an executive order revoking President Barack Obama's January 2009 order to close the Guantánamo Bay detention facility.

Delivering his biggest speech of the year, this most polarizing of presidents sought to put the spotlight on a robust Trump economy, while pointedly calling on a packed joint session of Congress to enact hardline curbs on immigration.

"We know that Americans of all political leanings believe that the US should stand up for human rights".

"But it's far, far bigger than that", he said.

Trump said he was also asking Congress to ensure the U.S. had needed powers to detain Islamic State group members and other "terrorists wherever we chase them down", though it was unclear whether he was referring to a new war powers authorization or some other mechanism.

In what would be a break with tradition, Melania Trump reportedly traveled separately to the US Capitol and not in the presidential limousine. When Trump made this commitment, Graham said he and the president locked eyes.

Trump used the hour-and-20-minute speech, given annually by presidents to Congress, to try to overcome doubts about his presidency at a time when he is battling a probe into his campaign's alleged ties with Russia and suffering low job approval ratings.

That came as a relief, particularly to some Republican moderates who have chafed at Trump's fondness for attack. President Trump's dramatic slashing of refugee levels and humanitarian aid is irresponsible and cruel.

Media reports that Trump last year considered firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is conducting the Russia investigation, drew new attention to a probe that has hung over Trump since the start of his presidency. The facts he uses to defend his positions also regularly prove to be false.

Minutes later, her husband took the floor and exchanged waves with his wife.

Thousands of coal-industry workers, for example, lost their jobs under Obama, which was due mainly to competition from cheap energy sources like natural gas and renewables.

That is not the case.

It wasn't the longest State of the Union address. He began by praising Black History month and denouncing threats at Jewish community centers.

He suggested that's one of the things he has learned during his first year in office. I was too focused on what members of Congress and the Cabinet were doing when they knew they were on camera - and also when they clearly didn't.

But within days, Trump's unifying message was a distant memory.

In his lunch with television anchors, Trump said he empathizes with the DACA recipients.

Gill said, "Upset and mad because people come here for a better future, and not just a better future, we come with good values".

American Trucking Associations, vocal supporters of Trump through the successful tax reform push, tweeted during the speech it stands "ready to carry a solution for infrastructure forward".

After devastating defeats in 2016, Democrats are hopeful that Trump's sagging popularity can help the party rebound in November's midterm elections.

Republicans likely will need voters from both those camps to hold onto the House and Senate.

She makes few public speeches, and is rarely seen in Washington.

Republicans are hopeful Trump can be convinced to focus his messaging on selling GOP tax cuts as a boon to the middle class over the coming months.

In the place of hope, Trump needs fear, a lot of it, to build the cult of his personality.

President Trump said the third pillar ends the visa lottery - a programme that randomly hands out green cards without any regard for skill, merit, or the safety of Americans.
