Most mornings, President Donald Trump gathers business leaders, union executives or others at the White House for made-for-television meetings meant to project the image of a can-do chief executive. Trump sits at the center of one of the White House's ornate meeting rooms, offers brief remarks and invites assembled journalists to stick around to hear his guests praise his plans. That was particularly evident Tuesday night, when Trump delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress.The new president stepped into the House chamber with historically low public approval ratings after a turbulent start to his administration. Trump responded by embracing both the traditional pomp and decorum of a presidential address. Plans to follow Trump's speech with the signing of a revamped, yet still controversial, travel ban executive order Wednesday were delayed so the administration avoided trampling on the looping highlight reel of Trump's speech on cable television.The White House has tried to cast Trump as a president in perpetual motion, filling his days with back-to-back meetings and showcasing relatively minor bill signings and executive actions.
