During Monday’s White House press briefing, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to preview President Trump’s State of the Union address.

One reporter asked Sanders what the President believes the State of the Union today is, to which she replied, “I think it’s incredible.”

“And I think that you’ll hear that in the President’s words tomorrow night,” she said. “Look, we’ve got an economy that’s booming, ISIS is on the run, we’re remaking the judiciary in a way that actually believes in upholding the Constitution. There are some great things happening in this country and I think you can expect to hear the President talk about a lot of those, not only what we’ve been able to do in the first year but all of the great things we’re going to do in the next seven years after this.”

“The theme of the address is: Building a safe, strong, and proud America, which is exactly what the president has worked to do during his first year in office,” Sanders told reporters on Monday.  

She added that she didn't want to give away what the President will say in his remarks, but that it would "obviously be must-watch TV." 

President Trump delivers his first State of the Union address as president on Tuesday.

The speech will focus on immigration, infrastructure, national security, trade, jobs and the economy, according to the White House.  

Trump is expected to push his administration’s new immigration proposal which offers the 1.8 million illegal immigrants or “Dreamers” who qualify or receive DACA benefits a path to citizenship while also cutting back legal immigration programs such as the visa lottery and chain migration programs.
