President Trump radiates optimism in State of the Union speech
Liberals who dominate the media were ensuring their anti-Trump rhetoric stayed front-and-center in advance of President Trump’s first State of the Union address Tuesday night.
This is the hateful spew erupting from New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow as he warned others not to use the term “presidential” to describe Trump’s exceedingly presidential speech.
President Trump called for strength and unity and issued a robust defense of American exceptionalism. Referring to his newly implemented tax reforms and the benefits they have already made possible for individuals, families and businesses, he reminded the American people, “There has never been a better time to start living the American Dream.”
As the camera scanned the scowling Democrats, the entire membership of the Congressional Black Caucus sat on their hands refusing to celebrate the lowest recorded black unemployment. Hispanic unemployment has also reached historically low levels. Obviously they don’t want either our president or the country to succeed.
A CBS poll released following the State of the Union tells a different story. Americans who watched the speech gave it a 75% approval rating. 65% said the speech made them proud. Black-clad and dour, Nancy Pelosi looked shell-shocked as cheers repeatedly filled the imposing chamber responding to President Donald J. Trump‘s outline of accomplishments and plans for the future.
