Harris Responds to State of the Union Address

Donald Trump

In one of the longest-running State of the Union speeches in US history, the 71-year-old businessman-turned politician heralded the economic successes of his administration, including a soaring stock market and low unemployment. However, it also shows young Americans pondering the impact of their previous government's foreign-policy rhetoric.

This is the first State of the Union address given by U.S. President Donald Trump and his second joint-session address to Congress.

But little is known about the plan outside of a leaked memo that outlined where some of the funding would go and said it would include $200 billion in federal spending with the other $1.3 trillion coming from state, local, and private investment. "Delivered from the heart!" Regarding Iran, I think Trump is still under pressure from State Department bureaucrats countering his own natural instincts.

Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell said he appreciated the President discussing infrastructure, calling infrastructure a necessity.

"This is our new American moment".

Trump briefly touched on the environment, stating that "we have ended the war on beautiful, clean coal".

"I think this reality TV president was trying to create a new reality - a new political reality for himself", CBS's Norah O'Donnell said.

Not so. American workers shouldn't look to government to protect them from competition.

When debriefed on the speech switcheroo, most of the respondents admitted a certain bias against the current president.

'Will be planning Infrastructure and discussing Immigration and DACA, not easy when we have no support from the Democrats. "We will work to fix bad trade deals and negotiate new ones".

On some of the specific issues which Mr. Trump mentioned, most who watched had a favorable opinion of what he said about the nation's infrastructure, immigration and national security. Vice President Mike Pence abruptly left an Indianapolis Colts game after almost two dozen members of the San Francisco 49ers knelt during "The Star-Spangled Banner".

"And while I am always willing to work with my colleagues across the aisle, the President's call for bipartisanship and unity rings hollow".

"Along with their heroic Afghan partners, our military is no longer undermined by artificial timelines, and we no longer tell our enemies our plans", he said. Besides, those jobs don't belong to the "poorest Americans" but to anyone who can claim them. "But through it all, we have seen the beauty of America's soul, and the steel in America's spine". These changes alone are estimated to increase average family income by more than $4,000.

Ron Nehring, the former chair of the California Republican Party, said he thought the address was "a solid speech aimed at the issues on the minds of many Americans".

The U.S.is projected to become a net energy exporter during the next decade. Domestically, Trump is not very powerful.

"The bold package of immigration reform measures he put on the table tonight should prime the pump for overdue action, and we encourage Congress to take action in a timely manner", Duvall said. The motto is: "'in God we trust", he said.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics tracks how much money American earn each week.

Obama too tried to urge Congress to act on immigration.

But beyond the GOP, Trump's words have more significant ramifications. They aspire to get something for nothing.

The speech was relatively long, with notes of bipartisanship but many appeals to his base.
