President Trump is expected to speak about infrastructure, immigration, fair trade, rebuilding the military, and the economic recovery in 2017.
Trump has previously said the $1 trillion spending on infrastructure will come from a public-private partnership, in which federal funds would leverage greater private investment. The official on Friday didn’t touch on specifics.
The president will also showcase faces of the opioid crisis and heroes involved in fighting the crisis that has led to millions of deaths, a senior administration official said.
Trump delivered a speech to a joint session of Congress last year, but it was not an official State of the Union.
The preview offered to the media was only a glimpse with reluctance to go into detail. But when asked what headline will come out of the speech, and what the administration would like to see as the headline, the official had a response.
