Trump in Congress

The president makes his first address to Congress today, an annual ritual that has given American politics some memorable phrases (“axis of evil” and “war on poverty” among them). Usually all the White House staffers lobby to have their initiatives mentioned by the president, with the resulting speech sounding like someone reading the till receipt from a wonkish supermarket. This is not Donald Trump’s way. The advance briefing suggests that the president is aiming for a less apocalyptic tone than the one he struck in his “American carnage” inaugural address, but even his staff probably cannot accurately predict what he will say: the president reads only short speeches from an autocue, and the address to Congress typically goes on for a while. Mentions of Obamacare repeal, tax cuts and increased military spending seem unavoidable. But also expect something rambling, self-referential and, at times, downright weird.
