On Tuesday evening President Trump will deliver his first address to Congress. The president is scheduled to speak at 9 p.m. E.T. before a joint session of Congress and, like his inaugural address, the speech will be written by aide Stephen Miller.

During his first congressional address, Trump is expected to use his time at the podium to lay out his priorities moving forward, sharing details of what the White House hopes to achieve on Capitol Hill for the rest of the year.

“One can expect the president to put forth a detailed and deliberative recitation of the many things he’s accomplished in the first 40 days,” Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, has said. “He’s his own best spokesperson and messenger in terms of [outlining] completely the list of achievements that are either largely ignored or unknown.”

As the speech comes just before the official release of president’s first budget next month, he is also expected to cover the allocation of U.S. government funds, including a reported $54 billion increase in defense spending and cuts to other federal agencies and programs.

Some Congressional Democrats have invited guests from immigrant communities, refugees, and Muslim Americans in a political statement against Trump’s policies during his first few weeks in office.
