Five State of the Union predictions from Biden.

Five State of the Union predictions from Biden.

Biden will likely insist that Congress must provide him a clean debt limit increase.

He may still push for police funding but may also emphasise police reform and may again urge Congress to ban assault weapons.

The president may again cast U.S. backing for Ukraine as a war against dictatorship.

He wants to discuss a robust economy in the State of the Union.

Biden will surprise if he mentions the confidential documents scandal that started the year.

Biden may advise Congress to prioritise public concerns, but he is unlikely to comment on his son's probe.

The president won't mention GOP leaders in the audience either.

Biden will likely not discuss the DOJ probes of his predecessor or his handling of secret documents.
