Trump's speech will likely highlight his administration's "America First" agenda, a theme that has held constant in the 45th president's first year in office. The president and first lady Melania Trump have announced guests that will be joining them on Capitol Hill for the speech, including an Iraq War veteran, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent and fire prevention technician from Southern California.

The speech from the populist commander in chief will not be delivered without opposition, though, and many Democrats have planned to show their disapproval of Trump's both nationalist and often controversial platform.

Many female Democratic lawmakers have said they plan to wear all black as a show of protest comparable to the "blackout" seen at this year's Golden Globes.

"This is a culture change that is sweeping the country, and Congress is embracing it," said Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) to HuffPost.

While a number of Democrats -- including vocal Trump critics Reps. Maxine Water and John Lewis -- are planning to boycott the Tuesday night speech, other blue lawmakers will be using their crowd attendance as an opportunity to bring guests that symbolize a resistance to the Trump administration's platform.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), for example, will be bringing San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz to the speech. Cruz was outwardly critical of President Trump's handling of Hurricane Maria's devastation in Puerto Rico.

Topics you can expect out of Trump's first State of the Union

Tax reform win

Trump's single biggest legislative win in his first year as president was signing tax reform legislation into law. He will undoubtedly tout this Capitol Hill victory in his speech.

Immigration

From the border wall to a continued call to end "chain migration," major immigration reform and a plan for the 690,000 Dreamers brought to the U.S. illegally as children is likely going to be a major subject of Trump's State of the Union address.

Trade

As recently as last week in Davos, President Trump has emphasized that he wants "fair" trade deals that benefit the U.S.

Infrastructure

Trump is set to release his promised infrastructure plan on Tuesday -- a potentially $1 trillion workup that was reportedly leaked last week.

Stock market

Trump often boasts of a booming U.S. economy via Twitter, and will surely use the rocketing market as evidence of his administration's good work.

America First

Building off his nationalist speech in Davos last week, President Trump will likely posture himself before Congress as a commander in chief who puts the U.S. interest first, and everything else comes after that.

National security

Where Trump administration rhetoric is concerned, national security and immigration go hand in hand. The address will likely also maintain elements of praise for ICE and law enforcement agency work.
