President Trump’s first State of the Union Address (SOTU) was a masterful blend of conservative values, patriotism, and emotion, told in a unique way. To summarize the content the speech was about God, loving America, the American dream, lower taxes, the economy, a strong military, and American exceptionalism. The address was optimistic in tone, talked about the need for compromise, and celebrated the achievements of the American people. Note: the text of the speech can be found here and a video of the speech is embedded below.
Trump’s SOTU will be remembered as a celebration of America and Americans. After years of hearing our country was in decline, this president assured us that the future of the country would be great, “This is our new American moment. There has never been a better time to start living the American Dream,” and “the most difficult challenges bring out the best in America.”
