President Trump delivered the State of the Union address on February 5th, 2019. I decided to put together a few highlights. I have quotes from President Trump’s Speech, with the reactions that followed. Rather comical. Enjoy!
President Trump: “The U.S. economy is growing almost twice as fast today as when I took office, and we are considered far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world. Not even close.”
President Trump: “But we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise and the common good.
Together we can break decades of political stalemate, we can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future.”
President Trump: “And more than 1,500 sadistic traffickers have been put behind bars.”
President Trump: “San Diego used to have the most illegal border crossings in our country. In response, a strong security wall was put in place. This powerful barrier almost completely ended illegal crossings.”
President Trump: “Simply put, walls work and walls save lives.”
President Trump: “All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the work force than ever before.”
President Trump: “The next major priority for me and for all of us should be to lower the cost of health care and prescription drugs and to protect patients with pre-existing conditions.”
President Trump: “I’m also proud to be the first president to include in my budget for a nationwide paid family leave so every new parent has the chance to bond with their newborn child.”
President Trump: “I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in a mother’s womb.”
President Trump: “We are born free and we will stay free.”
President Trump: “Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”
President Trump: “Together we represent the most extraordinary nation in all of history. What will we do with this moment? How will we be remembered? I ask the men and women of this Congress, look at the opportunities before us. Our most thrilling achievements are still ahead. Our most exciting journeys still await.
Our biggest victories are still to come. We have not yet begun to dream. We must choose whether we are defined by our differences or whether we dare to transcend them.”
