WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump's address to Congress next week will be titled "The Renewal of the American Spirit."

White House press secretary Sean Spicer says Trump will speak on a number of topics, including defense, border security and taking care of the nation's veterans.

Spicer also says the president will discuss his plans for improving the nation's economy. Many of those themes were a central focus of Trump's campaign speeches.

House Speaker Paul Ryan last month invited the president to speak before Congress on Tuesday.
