LIVE: Trump's State of the Union Address
PhilstarLIVE ( - January 31, 2018 - 10:06am

American President Donald Trump will deliver his first State of the Union Address at 10 a.m. on Wednesday morning (Manila time).

President Donald Trump is declaring a "new American moment" in his State of the Union address — but his former campaign foe, Hillary Clinton, declared one first.

"This is our New American Moment," Trump will say, touting the state of the economy, according to excerpts released by the White House. "There has never been a better time to start living the American dream."

In a 2010 speech, then-Secretary of State Clinton told the Council on Foreign Relations that "a new American moment" was taking shape on the global stage, "a moment when our global leadership is essential, even if we must often lead in new ways."

It's hardly the first time Trump has appropriated a slogan. "Let's Make America Great Again" was popularized in 1980 by Ronald Reagan's presidential campaign. — Associated Press
