The funniest reactions from people who made it through Trump's State of the Union address

After expressing expectations of "fair and reciprocal" trade relationships with others, Trump asked both parties in Congress to pass an infrastructure bill so as to create 1.5 trillion U.S. dollars of investment. "We need this President to work in good faith on behalf of all Americans". Instead, the State Department calls it "family-based immigrant visas", which are broken down into categories determining who can apply. It is time for some serious action.

US President Donald Trump's State of the Union address barely attempted this. But there were no specifics, no sense of how budgets, strained by the very tax cuts he extolled, would actually support these objectives.

President Donald Trump used his State of the Union address on Tuesday in part to take credit for the strength of the U.S. economy and financial markets, something he does regularly. "That is why I have directed my administration to make fixing the injustice of high drug prices one of our top priorities".

Trump also caused alarm among some in the audience by criticizing citizens who don't stand for the national anthem; calling for Congress to allow him to remove federal employees who "undermine the public trust,"; and pledging to leave open the controversial Guantanamo Bay detention facility. Will there be a proposal? It signifies a party that doesn't know who they are.

EDITOR'S NOTE - Jonathan Lemire has covered the White House and politics for The Associated Press since 2013. The address will also air on virtually every broadcast news channel, if you would rather watch on TV than on a phone, a tablet or a computer.

Some conservatives are unhappy that Trump said that he had stripped out the core of Obamacare by ending the individual mandate.

Roughly 80% said President Trump's policies are headed in the right direction on infrastructure.

And while the network probably hoped the numbers were flipped, their poll found only 29 percent reacted negatively, while another 22 percent indicated they had a "somewhat positive" reaction.

Democrats selected Rep. Joe Kennedy of Massachusetts, a grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, to deliver the traditional response to the President's speech.

Trump's opening tone was uncharacteristically conciliatory, although it bridged no compromise on his drive to reduce immigration - which he painted as responsible for a plethora of social ills.

Mrs. Trump made a solo entrance Tuesday and was seated next to 12-year-old activist Preston Sharp. They Resist, Blame, Complain and Obstruct - and do nothing. He noted that in many countries, prices for medicines are often much lower than in the United States.

To everyone still recovering in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, California, and everywhere else - we are with you, we love you, and we will pull through together. Without such a spur, elected officials find it almost impossible to imagine turning ideas into laws.

Breaking with tradition, the first couple arrived separately to the Capitol, because, according to the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, she was accompanying guests.
