Coming off an appearance on the global stage, and facing more problems on the investigative front, President Trump is preparing a State of the Union address designed to outline his vision of a safer and stronger United States, officials said.
While touting the tax cuts he signed into law last year, Trump will also outline a second-year agenda that includes an infrastructure proposal, an immigration plan, and a new approach to trade with other countries, said officials who briefed reporters ahead of Trump's first State of the Union address.
One added that the U.S. economy was "roaring."
The theme of this year's speech is a "a safe, strong, and proud America," officials said, and Trump is expected to discuss how the the tax cut package he signed late last year will spark the economic recovery.
The New York Times reported that back in June Trump ordered the dismissal of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and backed down only after White House Counsel Don McGahn threatened to quit over the move.
Trump denounced the report as "fake news."
