Shares on Wall Street were slightly higher on Tuesday ahead of President Donald Trump's closely-watched speech on trade.

The US president will address the Economic Club of New York later in the day in a speech that the White House said would highlight "how his policies of lower taxes, deregulation, and fair and reciprocal trade have supported the longest economic recovery in US history with record low unemployment, rising wages, and soaring consumer confidence."
