Donald Trump is expected to trumpet the US economy in his State of the Union speech to Congress on Tuesday.
The President will ceremonially kick off his second year in office at 9pm ET (2am GMT) with his pitch to the American people likely to tout his flagship tax legislation and jobs figures. It will come as his approval rating hovers in the 30s.
