STATE OF THE UNION - Tuesday January 30, 2017 @ 6pm

In the latest reminder that it's never too soon to start campaigning for reelection, President Donald Trump's camp sent out a fundraising solicitation on Monday: pay at least $35 and your name will appear on the campaign's livestream of the State of the Union address Tuesday night.

First lady Melania Trump, who has kept largely out of sight since allegations were published that porn star Stormy Daniels received a $130,000 payout just before the 2016 election to keep quiet about an earlier affair with Donald Trump when he and Melania were newlyweds, will attend the speech, reported The New York Times.

A State of the Union speech succeeds, however, when it does not only draw applause from the president's party, but manages to deliver a concrete legislative plan that a majority of Americans can rally behind.

The administration official said that Trump, looking for bipartisan cooperation on immigration, would "certainly" address the framework in his speech.

White House aides Kellyanne Conway, Stephen Miller and Hope Hicks were also in the meeting and Vice President Mike Pence dropped by.

The sources, who requested anonymity to more candidly share Trump's comments, said the President expressed uncertainty that Democrats including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are willing to reach a DACA deal. Thematically, Trump is expected to speak of having built the foundation for a safer and stronger nation.

Facebook says it's banned 'misleading' financial ads
For more than a year, Facebook has been repeatedly criticized for not adequately preventing people from misusing its ad platform. It also said that it is working to improve its detection of "deceptive and misleading advertising practices".

The speech will reportedly address five themes: the tax cut; immigration; trade; national security; and a $1 trillion infrastructure plan.

The State of the Union is scheduled for 9 p.m. EST on Tuesday. Trump cancelled the program a year ago but gave Congress until March to come up with a legislative fix. Blinder said there is an argument to be made, though, for Trump having some influence on the stock market.

What topics are expected to be covered by Trump? . Several Democratic lawmakers have said they will boycott the event. Numerous women present will be wearing black in solidarity with the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment.

Who's giving the Democratic response?

The speech comes as the president is buffeted by a series of headlines about U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Trump or his aides colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

The official declined to get into who has been working on the speech but said it has gone through the staff secretary process, where different aspects of the administration are able to look at and edit the parts of the speech that matter to them.
