"We see this as the most likely outcome because despite reaching a stopgap agreement, President Trump and congressional Democrats remain fundamentally at odds over border security appropriations but will likely seek to avoid a further shutdown", the report stated.

Sen. Lindsey Graham said the Republican Party is very divided over the border wall and argued that President Trump choosing to declare a national emergency to build the structure could mean war within the GOP.

While White House officials cautioned that Mr Trump's remarks were still being finalised, the president was expected to use some of his televised address to showcase a growing economy.

It was the third-longest such speech in history, according to the Presidency Project at the University of California Santa Barbara, and the only Republican address to last more than an hour since the university's record-keeping began in 1966.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway told reporters February 4 that the president had the "absolute right to declare a national emergency".

Trump is set to deliver his address Tuesday night on Capitol Hill. "And he's going to point out a couple of examples of where this has actually happened on his watch", she added.

Critics listening to the speech, Conway said, "should listen to the message, not always just look at the messenger", and look for ways to work together.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. He will also give an update on trade talks with the Chinese.

A preview of Trump's speech released by the White House suggests the president, who is accused of increasing America's divisions with his controversial policies and fiery rhetoric, will appeal for unity.

'This one probably won't be a marathon, ' a White House official said Tuesday.

Others in the varied group of guests, who will sit with First Lady Melania Trump for the address, include a woman freed from federal prison after Trump cut short her life sentence for drug offenses and a DE boy allegedly bullied because his last name is Trump.

The address is also being used as a fundraising tool for the President's re-election campaign, soliciting input from supporters.

However, Rep. Steve Cohen told The Hill: "I will not attend the State of the Union once again this year". Nancy & Chuck don't want me to speak, Mainstream Media outlets don't want me to speak, and the Hollywood Elites don't want me to speak.
