Donald Trump's First State Of The Union Address Highlights Immigration, Infrastructure

Melania Trump & Hillary Clinton

And even though the economy has remained on an upswing, just hours before he was set to deliver his speech the stock market took a triple-digit hit. They think it amounts to surrendering the cause of repeal of the whole law.

They include Brooklyn Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, who attended the speech, and Queens Congressman Gregory Meeks, who skipped it in protest.

After years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages.

"In confronting these dangers, we know that weakness is the surest path to conflict, and unmatched power is the surest means of our defence", he said and asked the Congress to end the dangerous defence sequester and fully fund the military. He did not, for the record, talk about the Russia probe and Robert Mueller.

Reaction to President Trump's first State of the Union speech followed the familiar choose-your-own-partisan-narrative script that's dominated political life since the 2016 election.

Trump insisted on repeating claims that have been disputed by fact checkers.

Litt assumed that he was similar to every other speechwriter for every other president in history: the personal trainer not a puppet master. "That's bad for America". He is also a former US campaign adviser. "So far President Trump's actions haven't synced up with his teleprompter".

U.S. President Donald Trump's first State of the Union (SOTU) address on Wednesday brushed over many important issues, making the speech appear more like a show than a serious statement of national priorities.

There was nothing new to make it easier to come to a deal.

"Watching a Trump speech is like watching him cover mistakes".

Trump should try to act normal for a few days and let the Democrats spout all their left-wing rhetoric and dig themselves a deeper hole.

28% had a negative view of the speech. "He just had to stay on script no matter what, and he did".

Trump spent his time at the podium as many predecessors have: touting achievements such as the nation's recent economic growth and a newly-passed tax bill and laying out his agenda for the year ahead - an agenda that he said would create a "safe, strong and proud America".

One last matter: There is a potential of compromise on infrastructure spending.

Representative Lujan Grisham also says she would have liked to hear more specifics from the President about his plan for the country moving forward about trade, infrastructure and the opioid epidemic.

Private investment. That's the catch.
