"Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve," he said.

The speech marked Trump's first year in office and came as his opinion poll approval numbers touched new lows, despite promising economic data and the president's frequent boasts of historic victories.

"So let us begin tonight by recognizing that the state of our union is strong because our people are strong," Trump said.

"And together, we are building a safe, strong and proud America. The state of our union is strong, because our people are strong."
