The president is expected to call for funding for his promised border wall. Trump has maintained there is a crisis at the country’s southern border.

A senior administration official told Reuters that Trump would also “encourage Congress to reject the politics of resistance and retribution, and instead adopt a spirit of cooperation and compromise so we can achieve it.”
