Trump tells Congress - and Sanders - 'America will never be socialist'

Trump signaled that he will not back off his hard-line immigration policies that have polarized the country.

Bonnie Watson Coleman and Jimmy Gomez brought immigrants in the USA illegally who spoke out about their employment at Trump's resort in Bedminster, NJ. What will we do with this moment?

On foreign policy, Trump announced that he will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un later this month in Vietnam to, in his words, "continue our historic push for peace on the Korean Peninsula". He announced details of a second meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, outlining a February 27-28 summit in Vietnam. "But we need him to tell the truth, and to respect his duties and the extraordinary diversity that defines America", Abrams said in a short speech immediately following Trump's address. Abortion is an issue that excites many conservatives - especially white, self-described evangelicals - and in Tuesday's speech, Trump appealed to that demographic with sharp criticism of new, controversial abortion measures in Virginia and NY.

Former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams called out President Donald Trump for having used the American people as pawns during the recent government shutdown. But they had plenty to say about Trump's new top political foe, Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and her fellow Democrats.

The Republican president appeared in the House chamber just weeks after his demand for $5.7 billion in funding for a U.S. -Mexico border wall triggered a historic 35-day partial government shutdown that more than half of Americans blamed him for, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling.

The summit could help break a deadlock in U.S.

Abrams then shifted her speech to address the Republican Party more generally, saying hard-working people are falling behind because of Republicans who don't know their constituents.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who asked Abrams to deliver the Democrats' response, said earlier Tuesday that she "is going to do a great job" and billed Trump as the warm-up act for her.

Trump's address amounted to an opening argument for his re-election campaign.

One bright spot for the president has been the economy, which has added jobs for 100 straight months.

He said, "The only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations" an apparent swipe at the special counsel investigation into ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as the upcoming congressional investigations.

Our own view is that its not President Trump and the Republicans who would be on the spot in a debate over over socialism.

The nationally televised address gave Trump his biggest opportunity to date to explain why he believes a barrier is needed on the USA southern border with Mexico.

During an off-the-record lunch for television anchors on Tuesday before the speech, Trump offered scathing assessments of a number of leading Democrats, including some lining up to run against him next year.

In a surprising remark, Trump said he wanted "people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally", before again linking illegal immigration to murders, gang violence and crime, and argued tolerance for illegal immigration was "cruel".
