President Trump struck a more positive tone in his first ever State of the Union address to Congress Tuesday night, but did he succeed in uniting a divided Washington? Cheddar's J.D. Durkin and Baker Machado break down all the biggest moments from the president's speech.
The economy took center stage in President Trumps's speech Tuesday night. He took the opportunity to highlight newly-enacted tax reform, one of his most visible accomplishments since taking office. Trump pointed to Apple's recent decision to invest in the U.S. as an example of tax reform's success.
President Trump also laid out his immigration plan and called on Congress to pass legislation. His plan includes protection for Dreamers as well as funding to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. This elicited boos from Democratic lawmakers who have been vocal critics of the border wall.
Erin Delmore, senior political correspondent at Bustle, also joined us to give her take on the president's speech. Even though Trump's last year in office has been divisive, his State of the Union address struck a unifying tone. But Delmore says it remains to be seen whether Trump's message won over skeptical voters.
