State of the Union 2019: Donald Trump’s guest list hits on all his expected talking points
President Donald Trump has announced who will attend Tuesday’s State of the Union as his guests.

Family members of Gerald and Sharon David will attend to represent the murdered Reno, Nevada, couple.
The Davids’ daughter Debra Bissell, granddaughter Heather Armstrong, and great-granddaughter Madison Armstrong make up three generations of the family. The Davids were killed in January after police said a man suspected of being in the country illegally killed shot them during a robbery.

Trump has spent a considerable amount of time talking about human trafficking along the border. Elvin Hernandez, a special agent with the Department of Homeland Security, investigates drugs, gangs and human trafficking, according to the White House.

Democrats think this is a big game, but Trump is going to address serious issues. Be sure to watch.
