In addition to ramping up his anti-abortion rhetoric on Tuesday evening, President Trump plans to announce a new initiative in his State of the Union address: a 10-year plan to end HIV transmission in the U.S., Politico reported.
According to four people with knowledge of the plans who spoke to Politico, the new strategy — which has the support of the health community, including HHS Secretary Alex Azar — would devote resources to communities with the most infections. The Department of Health and Human Services has encouraged the White House repeatedly to highlight the new plan in the Tuesday night speech, two people familiar with the matter told Politico.
Another White House official told Politico that the speech has not yet been finalized.
