The state of our union:

“Less than one year has passed since I first stood at this podium, in this majestic chamber, to speak on behalf of the American People,” President Donald J. Trump began his address last night. “Each day since, we have gone forward with a clear vision and a righteous mission—to make America great again for all Americans.”

The President’s speech is available in full text here. He spoke from the heart about a core set of issues that unite Americans of all stripes in both their values and their patriotism:




* Tax reform and the economy: “Just as I promised the American people from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reform in American history. . . . Roughly 3 million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses.”

* Reshaping Washington: “In our drive to make Washington accountable, we have eliminated more regulations in our first year than any administration in the history of our country.”

* Immigration reform: “Struggling communities, especially immigrant communities, will also be helped by immigration policies that focus on the best interests of American workers and American families.”

* Getting trade right: “America has also finally turned the page on decades of unfair trade deals that sacrificed our prosperity and shipped away our companies, our jobs, and our wealth.”

* Rebuilding our infrastructure: “America is a nation of builders. We built the Empire State Building in just one year – isn’t it a disgrace that it can now take ten years just to get a minor permit approved for the building of a simple road?”

* Keeping America safe: “I am proud to report that the coalition to defeat ISIS has liberated very close to 100 percent of the territory just recently held by these killers in Iraq and in Syria.”

“As long as we are proud of who we are and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve,” the President said. “As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will never fail.”

“Together, we are building a safe, strong, and proud America.”
