President Trump delivered an inspired speech last night that even brought the white-clad suffragettes to their feet to applaud his reaching across the aisle.
This speech was a game changer from the partisan politics parlay that has been the present condition in Washington.
Yes he tweaked them on “America will never be a socialist country,” but he celebrated their ability to serve in Congress as showing how great America is.
He spoke of the wall in humanitarian terms. He personalized the horrors that invade our countries across the southern border. Trump told Americans that children were enduring unspeakable hardship through sex trafficking.A topic most Americans probably know little about, but he put a face to the heroes that combat this on a daily basis.
Trump clearly laid out the national emergency on the southern border without using the explosive term. On Feb. 15 he can now make the case for a declaration far more convincingly than prior.
He spoke for many Americans when he said it’s not OK for babies to be aborted hours before birth like New York and Virginia approved recently.
The president laid out his economic successes over the last two years, such as the job booms where more Black, Hispanic, Women and Disabled Americans are working now than ever before. How tax cuts put more money in the hands of the people and not in Washington’s pockets.
Of course this speech will not move the needle in New York, California or Illinois, but it certainly had to make the fence-sitters and marginal RINOs take notice that this State Of The Union was a powerful message that America is Great Again and we should not stop moving forward in that greatness.
