President Donald Trump will welcome over a dozen Americans to join him at the State of the Union address on Tuesday to highlight his priorities for the country. The President and first lady’s guest list features family members of an elderly couple killed by illegal immigrants and the father of a seaman killed in the U.S.S. Cole attack. Jamal al-Badawi, the terrorist leader of that attack, was killed in January by U.S. forces.
Others include Americans released from prison as a result of the First Step Act, a woman recovering from opioid addiction, and a border enforcement official.
The president will also welcome Joshua Trump, a sixth-grade student from Wilmington, Delaware who has been bullied because of his last name.
The newly freed Alice Johnson will also attend the State of the Union speech after the president commuted her sentence in 2018 after her case was brought to the president’s attention by Kim Kardashian.
Joining them will be a member of the Tree of Life Synagogue who survived last year’s horrific shooting as well as a SWAT team member who survived multiple gunshot wounds in the attack.
“This year’s guests come from all different walks of life, and each has an incredible story to tell,” the White House wrote in a statement. “No matter their background, each one has something important in common: They represent the very best of America.”
