Trump hails ‘new American moment’ in first State of the Union address

January 31, 2018

President Trump took a victory lap on the economy Tuesday night in his first State of the Union address, declaring that his tax cuts have sparked an American revival, and reaching out to Democrats to work on problems from immigration to infrastructure.

“This is our new American moment,” Mr. Trump told Congress in a prime-time address. “There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.”

After a turbulent first year in which he often clashed with congressional Democrats, Mr. Trump appealed to liberal lawmakers to compromise on issues such as his major proposal on immigration and border security — providing a path to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers,” spending $25 billion to build a border wall and enacting other immigration restrictions.

Failure to reach a deal could prompt a partial government shutdown next week.

    Best line of the night: “American’s are dreamers, too”. Best stat of the night: The President all have called a narcissist for the last year said “America” more than 80 times, “We” more than 70 times, “Our” more than 50 times, but “I” less than 30 times. Compare this to the first Obama SOTU where he said “I” almost 100 times in a speech the same length. And he was NEVER called a narcissist. And can you imagine the howls of “racism” that would have been directed at any white Republican member who walked out or boycotted an Obama SOTU?
