When President Trump delivers his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, First Lady Melania Trump will be flanked by more than a dozen invited guests in the balcony - and one of them is raising eyebrows.

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

According to a report by Goldman Sachs, Trump may agree to sign the conference report but, at the same time, invoke his emergency powers to fund a border wall if the report calls for lower-than-expected border security appropriations.
