The White House has released a handful of excerpts from President Trump's address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night, which starts at 9 p.m. Eastern.

-The time for trivial fights is behind us

-The time for small thinking is over

-We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts

-Think of the marvels we can achieve if we simply set free the dreams of our people, cures to illnesses that have always plagued us are not too much to hope

-My budget will also increase funding for our veterans 

-Our veterans have delivered for this nation and now we must deliver for them

-The challenges we face as a nation are great, but our people are even greater and none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform
