Trump calls for unity on immigration in State of the Union address

Trump calls for unity on immigration in State of the Union address Trump calls for unity on immigration in State of the Union address
Patty Aguilar | 31 January, 2018, 18:37

As the address began, Trump hit a series of surprisingly hopeful notes, with declarations of "a new tide of optimism" and praise for the nation including an unusually ego-less assertion that "our state of the union is strong because our people are strong".

President TrumpDonald John TrumpCynthia Nixon calls for Americans to "take to the streets" if Trump fires Mueller Trump declines to implement new Russian Federation sanctions Comey praises McCabe: He "stood tall" while "small people" tried to tear down the FBI MORE boasted about his aggressive environmental deregulatory agenda Tuesday, saying he's put an end to the "war" on American energy and coal.

Trump ran - and won - on the idea that he would always put our country first. For the first hour of the speech, Trump talked about nothing but domestic policy.

There is little question the change in the regulatory environment and the corporate tax cut helped fuel the rise.

Seeking to enliven his own base, Trump spoke at length on the need for immigration reform, drawing hisses from the opposition as he equated immigrants with criminality and economic tension and spoke of "chain migration".

Part of the problem for Democrats, of course, is that Trump's speech was laced with arguments against immigrants and immigration, a policy that they flatly reject.

One subject the President did not mention in his speech was Russian Federation and its interference in American elections.

"Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for. the people we were elected to serve", he said.

"If you work hard, if you believe in yourself if you believe in America and you can dream anything and be anything and together we can achieve", he said. America is coming back.

Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams' final Suits episode date set
The network announced the show's renewal on Tuesday, along with confirming that it will be a very different series next year. The plot of the next season will focus on Harvey ( Gabriel Macht ) having to deal with Jessica losing her license.

Most state of the union addresses are roughly evenly split between a touting of past accomplishments and the laying out of a vision for future governance. Those challenges will continue to haunt Trump, while the speech will be a forgotten memory in less than a week. He called for a bill that would generate $1.7 trillion for infrastructure investment.

"Tonight, I am calling on the Congress to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13, and other criminals, to break into our country".

Trump's most detailed proposal was, perhaps, the most contentious.

The recession officially ended in June 2009, and from that point to the end of Obama's second term, job growth was 159,000 per month, less than during Trump's first year. But it has received a cold shoulder from Senate Republicans who are not keen to take the matter up, and certainly don't want it thrown in as a demand for keeping the government from closing again next month. The speech will reflect on his first year in office and highlight the country's economic upswing.

He jettisoned DACA. He pushed for the repeal of the individual mandate.

"Instead of vowing to end a longstanding national disgrace once and for all, the president instead signed an order that will keep prisoners detained without charge or trial in Guantanamo Bay".

Trump faces a series of policy choices in the next few weeks and months that will show whether he is honest in his pledge to "seek out common ground" and could also shape his presidency and legacy. In lieu of that, he reacted - or, in Trump's lingo - counter-punched against what Obama had done as president. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, a Republican who went toe-to-toe with Jones on CNN's set Tuesday night.

He also mentioned the two guests from California that he invited to the speech: firefighter David Dahlberg, who saved 60 people in a wildfire in rural Santa Barbara County last year, and Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old from Redding who started a movement to place flags on veterans' graves.

Trump warned that Pyongyang's "reckless" nuclear drive could "very soon" threaten the United States homeland, while also eyeing the geopolitical challenge posed by adversaries China and Russian Federation. Trump's speech Tuesday night didn't exceed that, but for a time, it seemed it might.
