President Trumps State Of The Union address was easily the best thing on television for an hour on February 4, 2020. Trump walked into the chamber emboldened and confident. President Trump ignored the Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi as she extended her hand to shake his. Clearly this is in response to Trumps impeachment. From that point the mood between the president and the speaker was contentious.
Pelosi seemed to be preoccupied and bothered during the entire speech. The democratic side of the chamber was silent for the majority of the time acknowledging a few of the citizens who were recognized, most notably 100 year-old Tuskegee Airman Charles McGee. Any mention Trump made of any accomplishment was met with silence, shouts, boos and chants from a group of democratic women wearing all white.
Trumps touted his accomplishments and praised the economy. “I am thrilled to report to you tonight that our economy is the best it has ever been.” said Trump The president lauded his accomplishments on issues ranging from healthcare to immigration. He spoke for about an hour and fifteen minutes and was met with overwhelming love from the republican side of the chamber. He even stopped to autograph one of his supporters ties.
An extremely telling moment was when Nancy Pelosi held up Trump’s speech in full view of the cameras and ripped it up. Clearly Trump is not her jam.
The theme of Trumps speech was “The Great American Comeback” Lets see how he comes back after this trial tomorrow.
