Trump calls for end of resistance politics in State of Union

Posted February 07, 2019

Trump's prompter read the following: "I want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally".

"Simply put, walls work and walls save lives".

That would mark a distinct turn for the president, who has spent months publicly blaming Democrats for illegal migration to the USA and accusing them of supporting "open borders" and high crime.

The address was postponed after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to invite Trump to the Capitol in the midst of the government shutdown, stressing that it would not be appropriate under the circumstances.

"There could be no greater contrast to the handsome image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days", President Trump said.

"Democrats stand ready to effectively secure our ports and borders". His remarks will come 10 days before he must strike a deal with congressional Democrats to avert another partial government shutdown.

A senior House Democratic aide told that Pelosi had planned to introduce the president. On Tuesday, President Trump delivered his speech but his eagerness may have gotten the better of him. "Lawmakers in NY cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother's womb moments from birth".

After presidents suffer setbacks in midterm elections, they often reach out to the victorious opposition with words of conciliation, however artificial or short-lived they may be. As New Mexicans know, the president's fear-mongering and out-of-touch characterization of the border does not match the reality on the ground, and the president's simplistic solution - a massive, wasteful wall - is not a realistic or effective approach to keeping our nation secure.

As President Trump gave his third State of the Union on Tuesday night, women of the Democratic Party united in white as a rebuttal to POTUS and the Republicans, who opted for all-black attire.

"What the American people were expecting to hear tonight was a message of unity, unfortunately the President failed to deliver".

"To many people this speech will be remembered for his continued obsession with the wall, the demonization of immigrants, and his freaky attack on congressional investigations".

"An economic miracle is taking place in the United States and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations", Trump said, earning applause from Republicans and a hardcore eyeroll from Pelosi.

Another Democratic star, Stacey Abrams, will deliver the party's response to Trump. But the speech did not include any mention of the racist medical school yearbook picture that has threatened Northam's political career. But the president said his outreach to Pyongyang had made the US safer. He pressed Congress to approve his new trade pact with Canada and Mexico updating the North American Free Trade Agreement. Trump said his administration also "has acted decisively to confront the world's leading state sponsor of terror: the radical regime in Iran".

He also will call out Iran for threats against Israel.
