Multiple Republican lawmakers are working alongside Democrats to put forward legislation curtailing Trump's existing national security tariff powers.

With the new February 15 funding deadline looming, Mr Trump is expected to use his address to outline his demands, which still include funding for a wall along the US-Mexico border.

He's reduced federal taxes and regulations, 304,000 jobs were added to the USA economy last month, unemployment is at a 50-year low, and there are now more jobs available than there are people to fill them. That's the longest such period on record.

Section 284 also authorizes the president to deploy the US military to the southern border to build fences to assist "counterdrug activities or activities to counter transnational organized crime".

In a weekend interview with CBS, Trump said efforts to defeat the IS group were "at 99% right now. We'll be at 100". The announcement could come before, during or after the speech, according to United States media.

The president was asked about Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's offer of $1 billion for border security.

Payne said 2020 candidates should heed how Abrams speaks to liberals in the party's base, but also to voters in conservative states like Georgia.
