The President’s State of the Union Address can be read here. 

The Heritage Foundation did some fact checking of his speech; read their results here.  They also did an in-depth analysis of his proposals that you can read here.

It was disappointing to watch some members sitting stone faced when President Trump touted the lowest black unemployment rate ever and other accomplishments that make life better for Americans. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich also had some thoughts on the President’s address. 

Personally, his defense of American being dreamers too, is the line, I believe, will resonate, and be remembered.  This was also a quintessential moment of the President’s address.

Sadly, what will also be remembered is Congressman Gutierrez storming out and flaunting lawlessness in the Capitol.
