Trump's State of the Union address will be Tuesday evening, January 30.

Trump is set to deliver his first SOTU to Congress next Tuesday, and expected to roll out his immigration plan and a 1.7-trillion-dollar infrastructure package during his speech.

On specific policies, Trump will try to "get the country excited about the urgency" of the need to devote a large sum of federal monies to rebuilding America's "depleted" roads, bridges, airports, tunnels, and seaports, the senior official said. Trump will use Tuesday's speech to try and convince Americans that his mix of border security, legalization for immigrants already here and limiting legal migration options is the best approach.

Trump recently told Reuters he would discuss the US trade imbalance with China during his State of the Union speech, and said he was considering retaliation over intellectual property issues. They said that includes his plan to have China and other countries pressure North Koreaeconomically to persuade it to give up nuclear weapons.

The speech is expected to adhere to the administration's new National Security Strategy and National Defense Strategy.

Less than four days after his carefully crafted address to the joint session last February, for example, Trump detonated a string of tweets accusing President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower and declaring: "This is McCarthyism!"

"A year later, people have a skepticism about him in these moments".
