All eyes on Trump for landmark address to Congress

All eyes on Trump for landmark address to CongressDonald Trump will have a chance to breathe new momentum into his month-old presidency in an address to Congress Tuesday night, but he will need to strike the right tone — far from his score-settling tweets at foes of all stripes.
