A Call to Action

President Trump took an upbeat and optimistic tone in his first State of the Union address.

Touting a year’s worth of accomplishments, President Trump’s tone was an optimistic one in his first State of the Union address. The focus was clearly on bipartisanship, the President extending an open hand to both parties to fix the country’s broken immigration system. The debate over immigration played a large part in the most recent government shutdown. President Trump also gave a sobering assessment of the international challenges facing the country warning about North Korean nuclear weapons and the threat posed by ISIS. Massachusetts Congressman Joe Kennedy III offered the Democratic response, cautioning against mistaking talk for action.
