Roll Call
President Donald Trump will hold his first joint session address to Congress on Tuesday and every member is able to bring a guest to sit in the gallery. Oftentimes, those invited are a part of what is driving the news of the day. Judging by those invited, Democrats are packing the house with immigrant success stories and those affected by the new president’s policies. They’re also inviting a number of people they say benefited from the 2010 health reform law, which Trump and Republicans have vowed to repeal and replace.

The United States must continue to have a sustained presence and an active engagement in the Asia-Pacific, whether in trade, defence or in wielding its "soft power". A perception that it is reducing this presence will make countries question its ability to continue to lead and have a rules-based world order. That is the key message that visiting members of a bipartisan US congressional group, dedicated to promoting US-Singapore relations, will take home to the new Trump administration.
