(AP) — President Donald Trump is set to give his State of the Union address Tuesday night in the Capitol where his impeachment trial is still underway.

He’s expected to declare the state of the union strong, even when it’s bitterly divided as he asks Americans for a second term.

Trump has become just the third president in U.S. history to be impeached, but he’s expected to be acquitted in his Senate trial on Wednesday.

Aides say Trump will try to move forward in the prime-time speech before Congress and offer an optimistic message that stresses economic growth.
