On Tuesday, January 30, President Donald J. Trump stood in front of Congress and the American people, and delivered a powerful State of the Union speech. The address was meant to be a uniting moment for both parties, but the dems showed no enthusiasm or gratitude. Though many Americans and members of congress felt inspired and grateful, the majority of democrats in congress seemed to despise all of the good news and remarks that were shared. As Trump mentioned the many accomplishments of his first year in office, they scowled in hatred for the President, and perhaps America.
As Trump was introduced and announced, the room clapped and cheered; all except the quiet left wing. He began his remarks, speaking to congress and Americans, “each day since(his election) we’ve gone forward with a clear vision, and a righteous mission, to make America great again, for ALL Americans.” He then recapped the year, and highlighted many American heroes who risked their lives to save others during disasters like Hurricane Harvey, and the Vegas strip shooting, “So let’s begin tonight by recognizing that the state of our union is strong, because our people are strong!”
“Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including 200 thousand new jobs in manufacturing, alone. Tremendous numbers.” Trump began his remarks on wages and jobs. “After years and years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages. Unemployment claims have hit a 45 year low.” As the room uproared with clapping, most of the Democrats didn’t bat an eye. Apparently they don’t like Americans keeping more of the money they earn. We know Nancy Pelosi doesn’t, when she tweeted in regards to Trump’s major tax reform bill, that the savings of Americans because of this bill “were crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the schmooze on, it’s so pathetic. I think it’s insignificant.” It’s interesting she said this about the bill, which was projected to save the average American about $1,200 a year; because she described Obama’s $40 payroll tax cut, in 2011, as, “a victory for all Americans.”
Trump continued, “Something I’m very proud of; African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded.” The sad part is, the democratic African Americans in congress didn’t show any gratitude or enthusiasm for this remarkable feat, as if they don’t care for the African American community. “…and Hispanic-American unemployment has reached the lowest levels in history!” – still barely anything from the left. In fact, they looked utterly disgusted and appalled. Nancy Pelosi seemed to be fuming, her face contorting enough as if she was slapped across the face with a pancake.
Left wing members of congress showed little respect and attention as Trump talked about helping Veterans, some scrolling through their phones. Luis Gutierrez had to walk out of the room, as the people chanted, “USA!” over and over again.
What does this show us about the Democratic party? For a recap, they must be greedy and can’t stand the people keeping the money they earn. They must hate the black and hispanic communities. They must hate America, or at least they refuse to show support for the President, and swallow their pride to work together. Maybe they’re still mad about losing, even with the the entire MSM on their side. Who knows; but they should really put their differences aside to help Trump Make America great again, unless they want to lose again.
