Trump's time, Democrats' grumbles, Melania's white pantsuit

Now, while the urge is strong, it's a bit hard to make an apples-to-apples comparison from Trump's address last night to Barack Obama's first State of the Union.

While Pitt College Republicans and Pitt College Democrats hosted separate State of the Union viewing parties, Pitt's Political Science Student Association held an event appealing to students of any political association.

"Declaring something that hasn't even happened yet, declaring there was a war on energy", said Robbie Abelon, president of the Sacramento County Young Democrats.

A fact sheet issued by the White House to draw out nuances in Trump's speech said the suspension of almost $2 billion in security aid to Pakistan was held up as a "long overdue message to aid recipients that we expect them to fully join us in combating terrorism".

"With us tonight is one of the toughest people ever to serve in this House - a guy who took a bullet, nearly died and was back to work three months later", he said.

Trump's speech generated both positive and negative reactions.

The policy change would accomplish much of what Cotton and Republican Senator David Perdue of Georgia set out to do in the RAISE Act, which they advertised as a plan to cut legal immigration in half, largely by limiting family sponsorships.

"Because Americans are dreamers too", Trump said, as he promoted both a southern border wall and a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrants, including those covered by and eligible for DACA protection, known as "Dreamers", who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. According to Trump, those who "meet education and work requirements, and show good moral character", will be eligible to eventually become citizens.

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Q2 Earnings Beat As Business Revenue Soars
The company's stock was up 2.45 percent in regular trading, but down about 1 percent in after-hours trading. That's above the FactSet consensus estimate of $12.02 billion in revenue for More Personal Computing.

Renewing one of his campaign promises, Trump urged lawmakers to end what he called a "dangerous defense sequester" and fully fund the US military.

Trump said current immigration policies allowed Central American gang members into the country to commit violent crimes. Trump claims the visa lottery, "randomly hands out green cards without any regard for skill, merit or the safety of our people". "He equated the DREAMers and immigrants with the horror that MS13 has brought to those families and their children", Grijalva said.

"It is time to reform these outdated immigration rules, and finally bring our immigration system into the 21st century", Trump said.

Trump laid out a "four pillar" plan for immigration reform, which he described as a "down-the-middle compromise". "I watched a president who has lost all moral credibility pay lip service to unity and common ground while continuing to stoke fear and division", said John Gehring, Catholic program director at Faith in Public Life.

President Trump also took the opportunity on Tuesday night to honor Army Staff Sergeant Justin Peck when he addressed his pledge to "extinguish ISIS from the face of the Earth".

Knowlton said he strongly disagreed with what seemed to be Trump's "reauthorization of torture" in regards to illegal enemy combatants.

Offering the Democratic rebuttal to Trump's address, Joe Kennedy - grandson of Bobby Kennedy - said it would be "easy to dismiss this past year as chaos, as partisanship, as politics".

Trump's constant tweeting could quickly diminish the significance of his State of the Union speech.
