First lady Melania Trump is promoting the guests she will be sitting with at her husband's first State of the Union address.
The first lady tweeted Tuesday she will be joined at the speech "by an honorable group of Americans," including "heroes who have served our nation in times of need, families who have suffered at the hands of evil, and citizens who have embraced the American dream."
Mrs. Trump has been keeping a low profile following a report adult film star Stormy Daniels had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, shortly after he and the first lady wed.
The Wall Street Journal has reported Trump's personal lawyer brokered a $130,000 payment to Daniels to prohibit her from publicly discussing the alleged affair before the presidential election.
Many congressional Democrats are giving their guest passes for President Donald Trump's first State of the Union address to young immigrants known as "Dreamers," who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
More than 20 Dreamers are expected in the House gallery Tuesday night to put a face on the toll of the congressional stalemate on immigration policy.
They are the guests of high-profile Democrats including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and potential 2020 presidential candidates including Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.
Trump ended Obama-era protections for such immigrants. He now says he wants to grant them a path to citizenship, but Congress has been unable to come up with a legislative solution for an issue at the center of the recent government shutdown.
