President Trump stood before the new Congress on Tuesday for the State of the Union Address and asked legislators to come together to get stuff done. The call for unity speaks volumes about the current divisive state of the union.
Coming off of the longest government shutdown in American history, the President urged Congress to work with him to come up with a “common sense solution” to solve the border and illegal immigration problem. He started the address saying, “Millions of our fellow citizens are watching us now, gathered in this great chamber, hoping that we will govern not as two parties but as one nation.” President Trump then went on to tout the accomplishments of his administration and the collective body over the past two and a half years and inform Congress and the American people of his agenda going forward.
