Obama is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his landmark State of The Union address.
The president will make the historic address at the White House in front of an expected standing ovation.
But some Democrats are questioning the wisdom of the White Senate majority leader’s remarks.
Trump’s remarks will be his last in the role as president.
Democrats want a more diverse president, with a progressive agenda to tackle income inequality, climate change and racial inequality.
On Wednesday, the Whitehouse hosted a panel discussion titled “Reimagining American Power: A Democratic Party Strategy for Our Future,” hosted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
It included former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez, and former Labor Department Under Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez.
The Democratic congressional leadership is hosting a “Future of American Politics” forum to talk about how the party is evolving.
The panel discussed the party’s future.
“What are our core values?
Are we more conservative, liberal, moderate or progressive?” said Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a member of the Democratic Leadership Council, the governing body of the party.”
Is there an answer for us to answer to the future?” he added.
The first-term president also touched on some of the more progressive ideas he is pushing to address issues like immigration, climate and trade.
“There is an urgent need for bipartisan solutions to address the issues facing the American people,” he said.
“It is clear that the Republican Party has failed to deliver on the promises it made to voters.
We need a progressive, inclusive, and bold new vision to guide the next four years.”
Trump will be the first president to deliver a State of THE UNION address.
He will be joined at the event by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D.-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D.N.Y.
