Taking advantage of what's likely to be his largest audience of the year, President Trump plans to use tonight's State of the Union address to pitch an unlikely message of bipartisanship and to sell policy ideas that his advisers think can be "70-30" issues across the country, Axios' Alayna Treene reports.
The theme of the speech will be "choosing American greatness" — with the subtext being Trump's argument that Democrats should abandon their resistance against him and work together on a few things they should be able to agree on, Axios' Jonathan Swan reports.
In the new Democratic House, Trump's biggest applause line of the night may come when he greets Speaker Pelosi, sitting behind him, as "Madam Speaker."
Between the lines: The 2020 Democratic guest list says a lot about the messaging, Axios' Alexi McCammond notes.
The bottom line: Don't expect to get to bed early. Trump's speech last year was the 3rd-longest State of the Union in history at 80 minutes, just 9 shy of the record set by Bill Clinton.
