Twitter reacts to Trump's delayed State of the Union address

Trump Makes Last Appeal for Wall Funding in State of Union Address Facing Divided Congress, Trump Calls for Unity

Which sounds great, but is ultimately empty rhetoric when coming from the man who, in the same speech, spoke of a nonexistent "tremendous onslaught" of undocumented immigrants, spoke of Virginia's Democrat governor as supporting the "execution" of babies, and essentially said the Mueller investigation is the biggest threat to the American economy.

After recounting a host of positive economic indicators for America, President Trump said, "Members of Congress: the State of our Union is strong". They sat with first lady Melania Trump during the address.

'We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise and the common good, ' he said in his State of the Union address.

Pelosi, a Democrat, did not introduce the Republican president, and he did not acknowledge the speaker by name, the Los Angeles Times reported. "I don't know how anyone could even fathom supporting anything such as late-term abortion". Hank Johnson said he would "rather be somewhere else than listening to (Trump) come onto our floor & start talking about groups of people, particularly Latinos, and disparaging them as a people", he wrote on Twitter.

The partial government shutdown began on December 21 because of disagreements over money to build a U.S. -Mexico border wall.

Conway - and the rest of the politically interested world - will be watching the speaker throughout what aides say will be a slightly shorter address than the previous two Trump has delivered in the House chamber.

"Simply put, walls work and walls save lives".

Why is Vietnam going to host the second Trump-Kim summit?
Opinion about Trump's outreach to Kim Jong Un divides North Korea experts. "It's yours if you'll seize the moment". The United States and Vietnam normalized ties in 1995, decades after the end of the Vietnam War.

The viral photo of a child in a cage did not come from Trump's immigration policy, however.

While the president brought up acts of gun violence during his speech, he did not make any calls for gun safety reform. "The United States economy is growing nearly twice as fast today as when I took office, and we are considered far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world", said Trump.

After Mr. Trump agreed to reopen the government without funding for the border wall, Pelosi re-invited him to deliver the State of the Union.

Congress seems unlikely to give Trump what he wants, if the formal Democratic response to the president's speech is any indication. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is trying to persuade Abrams, 45, to run for Senate in 2020, sensing the opportunity to flip a Republican-held seat and bolster turnout in Georgia, which could become a presidential battleground.

He floated the possibility of a new multilateral nuclear arms control agreement following his decision to withdraw the USA from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty. The president stressed that many women attempting to cross into the US illegally get sexually assaulted during the journey.

"I am asking you to defend our very risky southern border out of love and devotion to our fellow citizens and to our country", he said, painting a dark and foreboding picture of the risks posed to Americans by illegal immigration.
