A divisive and misleading State of the Union address — Other Views

A divisive and misleading State of the Union address — Other Views

And he was right. He's been lying and worrying about crowd size for over a year.

Near the end of Trump's remarks, "USA!"

Thursday morning, Trump tweeted, "Thank you for all of the nice compliments and reviews on the State of the Union speech". It is simply repatriating money it has always had, and its plans to add 20,000 jobs appear largely unrelated to tax cuts or other government policies.

Last year, Trump falsely stated that his inauguration was the best-attended ever. If this is what he considers compromise, he does not understand the concept.

Still, we are better off "keeping" him in office: He can progressively tear down the Republican majorities and will be easier to defeat in 2020 than Vice President Pence, who would be a safer finger on the "button" but is a major enemy of democracy. Trump has actively promoted, on social media, Russian involvement in resolving problems with North Korea, Syria, Ukraine and terrorism, he said in his Congressional address that Russia and China were rivals that challenged U.S. economic interests. They visited with colleagues and staked out the aisle in hopes of getting a handshake or shout out as Trump entered the room.

In a research note, financial firm Height Analytics set the odds of another shutdown next week at 65 percent.

Fox News Channel earned the top spot among the individual networks, with 11.5 million viewers during the speech. The president spent the past year attacking America's democratic institutions and splitting the "American family".

As a case in point, Trump also highlighted Exxon Mobil's recent announcement that it will invest billions in the U.S.as a response to the tax bill. The president brought the parents of two girls killed by MS-13 gang members to the State of the Union as his personal guests.

President Trump's "new American moment" is already a year too long. "We hear the voices of Americans who feel forgotten and forsaken".

However, in this polarized political climate, it would not be a Trump address if there were not barbs tossed at political enemies, and old fights stirred up. It says something that he could be elected president. Here's a picture that compares Trump's inauguration to Obama's in 2009. While the average Johnson speech lasted for more than 53 minutes, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and George H.W. Bush kept their addresses at roughly 45 minutes or less on average. After Trump blasted Democrats repeatedly in the address, Democrats put forth a somewhat scattered defense. In addition, his self-acclamation for ending the war on "beautiful, clean coal" is concerning, especially in conjunction with his failure to address the dangers of climate change.

Clinton, then secretary of state, was asserting a foreign-policy philosophy that was the ideological opposite of Trump's: That the United States should assume a position of world leadership.
