The Lowdown: President Trump's State Of The Union!
TONIGHT: What President Trump will tell Americans
In a few minutes, President Donald J. Trump will travel to the U.S. Capitol to deliver the second State of the Union Address of his presidency. Watch it live at 9 p.m. ET.
Here’s a preview of what he’ll tell Congress and the American people:
“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. The decision is ours to make.”
The President picked one simple, powerful message for our country tonight: “Choosing Greatness.” When our leaders in Washington put citizens first and their careers second—when they choose a spirit of compromise over the politics of retribution—there is no limit to what America can achieve.
Both parties can rally behind this vision. We can protect American workers by passing the U.S.–Mexico–Canada Agreement to replace NAFTA. We can rebuild our country with a bipartisan infrastructure package that puts people to work. We can rebuild trust with a safe, legal immigration system that halts the flow of drugs and crime into our country.
President Trump was elected to solve the problems that Washington gave up trying to fix. He is a dealmaker offering common-sense, bipartisan solutions. In the past few months, Republicans and Democrats have already come together to pass historic criminal justice reform and crucial legislation to fund the war on opioid abuse.
These issues matter. Americans don’t want resistance. They want results.
