In his upcoming speech on the state of the nation, US President Donald Trump apparently wants to strike unusual conciliatory tones. Tuesday’s address to the congress will be optimistic and “unifying,” and in places even “visionary,” a senior White House official told reporters in Washington. In view of the bitter party dispute, Trump wanted to point out an “inspiring vision of American greatness” for all.

 

Trump’s staff gave the briefing an outlook on the speech, but without going into the details. According to a speech, the US president wants to encourage Congress to end decades of political stalemate.

 

“Together we can bridge old trenches and heal old wounds, build new coalitions and find new solutions,” says the excerpt. Trump’s critics accuse him of deepening trenches with his often-harsh political rhetoric.

 

According to the senior representative, Trump’s speech at the congress will focus on five areas: the situation at the Mexican border, the situation in the trade dispute with China, new investments in infrastructure, lowering high drug prices, and cessation of war missions abroad.

 

Whether the unpredictable president fulfills the expectations of his speechwriters and strikes softer tones, however, is uncertain. On Friday he hinted that he could call a national emergency in his speech to get the funds needed for his core concern of a wall on the Mexican border.

 

Should the president actually declare a state of emergency, this would be a deliberate provocation against the opposition Democrats who strictly reject the construction of the Wall.

 

Trump’s speech to the congress was scheduled for January. However, due to the budget dispute over financing the wall, the Democrats, who have a majority in the House of Representatives, forced a shift.

 

A week ago, after the longest household lock in American history, Trump had finally turned in and agreed with the Democrats on a three-week transitional budget, without receiving a dollar for his wall.

 

The deadline for agreement on a budget compromise expires on 15 February.
