President Trump had his first address to Congress tonight and it really was a magnificent address. President Trump addressed many key issues and laid out a clear plan for the future of The United States of America.
President Trump continued to talk like he's talked since the day he came down the escalators to announce he was running for president. President Trump continued to preach "America first" while expressing to continue to be the world's gold standard of a nation.
The president addressed the key issue of immigration and told Congress, and the American people, how it is and how we are going to fix the problem to better our country. We have to have, and enforce, borders in order to be a nation. Without borders, we are no nation. President Trump reassured Congress that the wall will be built, and we are going to solve the illegal immigration problem. The president has begun enforcing federal immigration laws such as deporting criminal illegal aliens. Expect deportations to increase while illegal immigration decreases.
Illegal immigration does bring non-criminals into the country, but criminals and drugs, pour through our southern border and terrorists can very well pass through. President Trump is doing what the previous administration didn't want to to do, enforce current federal immigration laws, but we need to secure our borders as well.
President Trump pressed on about spending insane amounts of money in the Middle East and around the world, while forgetting about the US. That is all true as well; sadly our roads, bridges, schools, and cities have been only getting worse and it's about time we have a president that is going to put us, the American people, first.
Here's a PBS News Hour video of Trump's infrastructure remarks:
The President addressed the problems NAFTA and China's entrance to the World Trade Organization caused to the American worker and American manufacturing. That was a big promise Trump made during his campaign, which he is keeping so far, which is bringing back and creating jobs. Trump wants free, but fair trade as well, and "buy American and hire American". Thankfully projects like the Keystone Pipeline are authorized and ready for work, and Trump made sure projects such as these use American made steel.
Video from PBS News Hour of Trump vowing not to let America get taken advantage of:
President Trump continues to stress his vision of America first, and is pushing common sense policies. President Trump only wants what's best for the people of the US, and that's what he means by giving Washington D.C back to us, the American people. No more lobbyists and career politicians endlessly swiping the taxpayer credit card and being all talk and no action, unless the action benefits them and special interest groups.
President Trump was right in bringing up the mess he inherited from President Obama, but he has the skills, tools, and resources to clean up the mess. The president also mentioned and gave the spotlight to rare disease survivors, families affected by illegal immigrants killing their kin, and families affected by poverty.
The president echoed his campaign promises, laid out a clear agenda, and expressed the accomplishments his administration has made so far. What President Trump is doing, and what he plans to do, is nothing new to the people who supported him and actual listened to what he had to say and knew his vision. This is exactly why the democrats are short circuiting is because, they simply did not listen to candidate Trump and were not prepared for a president Trump. This also goes for celebrities and all the whiny liberal and dems across the country.
President Trump also made it clear, we will defeat ISIS and destroy radical Islam. It has to be done, and the USA and her allies can do it easy. See this is what real leadership looks like, and the USA needed a president, along with the world, that has a get it done mindset.
Donald J. Trump was an outsider that defied the coastal elites and deep blue America, he stood on a platform that promoted pro-business, pro-worker, deregulation, and pro-American policies and ideas. If you followed and/or supported Trump, what he's doing should be no surprise and those who supported him should be very happy and thankful.
If you hated and despised Trump, gave him no chance, and gave him none of your time what he is doing and plans to do should shock you. However, it shouldn't shock you negatively, because there shouldn't be anything negative about President Trump's vision. He wants what's best for us, the American people, and he wants the US to be the world's gold standard again.
The winners tonight are Donald Trump and the American people, the losers are democrats, media, and the people who want him gone. The GOP is on notice, they need to get in step with the Trump Administration and the people who voted them into office. President Trump is here to stay for 8 years, and we'll all be thankful he did. The democrats barely bothered to clap and stand, and they ran out of the chamber right as President Trump ended his speech, sad!
We all have to stand united and walk in step with President Trump to truly Make America Great Again. We have to secure our borders, fix immigration, destroy radical Islam, bring back and create jobs, rebuild our country, restore communities, boost education, decrease our debt, deregulate industries, and decrease poverty. If we do all of that and then some, we can achieve President Trump's goal of Making America Great and Safe Again!
