Analyst: Hard to predict what President Trump will say to Congress tonight
Posted on 2/28/2017 10:51:00 AM.

Tonight President Donald Trump will address a joint session of Congress, and even political experts don’t know what to expect. LSU political science professor Robert Hogan says this address will be unlike any we’ve seen in a while, as a Republican president will go before a GOP dominated Congress.
