Trump to tout strong economy in State of the Union

"President Trump is calling on American taxpayers to pay for a wall that will not only slam the door on traumatized children and families seeking humanitarian protection in the U.S., but will also recklessly cut through Indigenous People's lands". "Mrs. Trump wears what she likes, and what is appropriate for the occasion". There's never been a president in history for whom words matter less. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had her angry eyes working, and she wore black like the poster child for Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cold 2018 cologne. After a year that should be more than obvious.

He sought to sell his controversial agenda to a broader audience than his base, focusing on the GOP tax law and on immigration.

His speech was moving.

South Korean analysts say President Donald Trump's fiery comments on North Korea reflected confidence that his campaign of pressure and sanctions on the country is working. The latter example was clearly playing to immigration hawks. And he has not softened his stance or his rhetoric at all. Same. This speech clocked in at one hour and 20 minutes. It said Mr Trump's promises to work with Democrats were not enough - "the country needs results".

Afterwards, the first lady was seen being escorted out of the gallery by a military officer, as Trump spoke with lawmakers and administration officials on the House floor.

He also called for the legislation to reduce the time required to approve building permits to as little as one to two years.

In the speech, Trump said, "If there is a mountain, we climb it. If there is a frontier, we cross it. If there is a challenge, we tame it. If there is an opportunity, we seize it".

This was tied to the riskiest moment of the address, when Trump told of the murders of two teenagers on Long Island by MS-13 gang members who'd arrived illegally across the U.S. border.

"Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone". Richard Nixon delivered his 1974 address in the middle of the Watergate scandal, about six months before he resigned.

In his address, Trump called the Islamic Republic a "corrupt dictatorship" and said, "America stands with the people of Iran in their courageous struggle for freedom".

"I am proud to report that the coalition to defeat ISIL has liberated almost 100 per cent of the territory once held by these killers in Iraq and Syria", he said, adding that he intends "to keep open the detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay".

"Millions of people around the world find themselves having to flee their homelands because of persecution and violence that in some cases can be traced back to U.S. actions".

This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Business Insider. That designation still goes to former President Bill Clinton. "It is a rallying cry for terrorist recruitment and harmful to our national security, so closing it is important for our national security". "It's based on applause". Much respect to our president. Perhaps in case they'd forgotten it was an option?

"I was glad to hear about tax reform". And says, "Look, you give me power and I will give voice to your concerns.".

"That is going to be a comforting message to the people of Puerto Rico once they have electricity to turn on their TVs", responded Colbert.

We will work to fix bad trade deals and negotiate new ones, Trump said. This Congress can be the one that finally makes it happen.

Melania Trump arrived at President Donald Trump's first State of the Union address wearing an all-white capri-pant suit.
