Trump Looks to Refocus His Presidency in Address to Congress

With his first address to Congress, President Donald Trump has an opportunity to refocus his young administration on the economic issues that helped him get elected. His allies hope it will help him move beyond the distractions and self-inflicted wounds that he has dealt with so far. "All I can do is speak from the heart and say what I want to do," Trump said in an interview that aired early Tuesday on Fox. The White House said Trump has been gathering ideas for the prime-time speech from the series of listening sessions he's been holding with law enforcement officials, union representatives, coal miners and others. Aides said he was still tinkering with the speech Monday night. Trump's advisers say he will use his address Tuesday to declare early progress on his campaign promises, including withdrawing the U.S. from a sweeping Pacific Rim trade pact, and to map a path ahead on thorny legislative priorities, including health care and infrastructure spending.
