  • Trump Makes Last Appeal for Wall Funding in State of Union Address

"A spokesperson for the California Democrat confirmed it was a copy of Trump's speech, according to The New York Times", as Fox News noted in a piece on the topic. "If he's talking Social Security or Medicare they just lost a major demographic".

At first, it looked like applause, but Americans around the country have quickly circulated an iconic photo of Speaker Nancy Pelosi applauding during President Donald Trump's State of the Union address - one some viewers say captured a much more nuanced message. Pelosi said no, not until the government reopened.

Trump's guests for the speech include Anna Marie Johnson, a woman whose life sentence for drug offenses was commuted by the president, and Joshua Trump, a sixth-grade student from Wilmington, Delaware, who has been bullied over his last name. Pelosi, second in line to the presidency, Saturday.

Trump spoke at a critical moment in his presidency, staring down a two-year stretch that will determine whether he is re-elected or leaves office in defeat.

A year ago, she privately counseled Democrats to stay out of the way of Trump being "his slobbering self".

"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.

"It is doable, and it probably exists at the rank-and-file level in a more robust way than people do understand", she added.

Not all of the reactions to Trump's words from Pelosi and Democrats were disapproving.

"Either she was supporting women, and celebrating with the president, or it was an ironic moment, where she's clapping for the women without supporting Trump's statements", she said. She knows. And she knows that you know.

The speech began with a call for bipartisanship, with the president saying he was "ready to work with you to achieve historic breakthroughs for all Americans". "But here's a clap". It came after she forced him to agree January 25 to reopen the government with zero dollars for his border wall.

Broken down by political party, the CBS survey found that 97 percent of Republicans approved of Trump's speech, 30 percent of Democrats did and 82 percent of independents agreed.

The women in white leapt to their feet and high-fived, pointing at themselves and each other. Pelosi stood and reached out with both hands to acknowledge them.

When he declared that the "state of our union is strong", she shook her head with a tight smile and stayed seated.

Turning to foreign policy, another area where Republicans have increasingly been willing to distance themselves from the president, Trump defended his decisions to withdraw USA troops from Syria and Afghanistan.

"That's great", Trump said.

Wearing the color of the suffragists, the Democratic women of the House put on a stunning display of solidarity during the State of the Union address Tuesday.

"It's certainly not going to have any impact", he said.

All of which means that to the extent Trump and other Republicans highlight reproductive rights in 2020, that could end up energizing Democratic-leaning demographic groups.
