Sharing a surname with the president may have caused the boy pain in the past, but he is now being recognized for it.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY accused Trump of "blatant hypocrisy", saying the president may want to talk about unity on Tuesday but "spends the other 364 days of the year dividing us".
He also will make another pitch for his proposed southern border wall.
She is expected to attack President Trump by claiming the government shutdown was "engineered by the President of the United States, one that defied every tenant of fairness and abandoned not just our people but our values". But he continues to threaten that he will divert funding for other military and infrastructure projects to build the wall, with or without congressional approval.
With Trump occupying the spotlight, those in the growing field of prospective candidates now serving in Congress are hoping that their chosen State of the Union guests will send him a message, create their own headlines or both.
Asked on Tuesday if Trump would use the speech to announce an emergency, White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said the president "has an absolute right to do it" but would prefer that lawmakers forge a solution.
Messi hits brace to salvage point for Barcelona
Sergi Roberto hit the post and Messi nearly equalised with a superb volley on the run as Barcelona began to dominate. Jordi Alba replaced Nelson Semedo at the break as Barcelona upped their game at the start of the second stanza.
Asked if he would announce where he will next meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders declined to give any details in a Fox News interview. "I think you'll find it very exciting".
Trump's address will have a theme of "Choosing Greatness" and will also feature a prolonged review of the administration's foreign policy achievements and vision, spanning North Korea, Venezuela, the Islamic Republican of Iran, the fight against the Islamic State, the US presence in Syria and the future of the USA role in Afghanistan.

Foreign policy has been another area where Republicans have increasingly been willing to distance themselves from the president. But Trump has never shown an interest in doing that. "He's going to lay out the case".
Back in the Obama era, Slog readers said the state of our union was everything from "damn lucky" to "drone-struck" and "meh". The counter-puncher in chief charged Schumer with being "upset that he didn't win the Senate, after spending a fortune, like he thought he would". Under pressure from conservative backers, Trump refused to sign a government funding bill that did not include money for his long-sought border wall. And when it comes to the president's requested $5.7 billion in border wall funding, he's hit a brick wall of naysayers. "They've been doing it for decades", she said. Even they will likely be disappointed, since Trump is likely to avoid telling this utterly false story about kidnappings at the border (apparently borrowed from the movie "Sicario: Day of the Soldado"), because it might be too easily disproved, even by Trumpian standards, in this august official setting. He has said the wall, which he initially said Mexico would pay for, is needed to deter illegal immigration and drugs. In short, the government might have re-opened, but little has changed.
On that, the president will likely speak of his achievements.
The shutdown left some Republicans frustrated over his insistence on a border wall, something they warned him the new Democratic House majority would not bend on.
Super Bowl buzz: Serena Williams' powerful message, BJK's praise for the Patriots
It's not really surprising considering the band was, at the very most, the NFL's third choice. It was not a battle of dominant defenses making heroic plays.
But there are other topics that might keep Republicans in their seats. They call him an idiot. Despite the objections of some advisers, Trump announced in December that he was withdrawing USA forces in Syria.
Trump aides and critics alike call him a "gut player".
Meanwhile, some White House officials are trying to spin the upcoming speech as positive and unifying.
However, a handful of Democrats believe they're making a bigger statement by not going at all.
President Donald Trump and Melania Trump have invited 11-year-old Joshua Trump to the State of the Union on February 5, as the first lady's plus one, after the 6th grader was bullied in school for his last name.
Odds are that Trump won't declare a national emergency on Tuesday night.
