Most Presidents wait until a full year has passed to give a State of the Union address. Donald Trump? He’s not most Presidents.
President Trump’s eventful first month has seen many swift actions. Donald only has one pace, and that pace is lightning fast.
So while the speech Trump gives tonight is not technically a “State of the Union” address because Trump has not been in office a full first year, he has already moved so quickly that Congress, and the American people, need to get an update on Trump’s progress in restoring America.
All this despite that fact that Democrats are trying to obstruct his cabinet picks. Despite the rallies ginned up by the Radical Left by the likes of George Soros.
Trump’s speech is definitely a must-watch event for anyone interested in politics—indeed, for any and all Americans. Knowing Donald, it is unlikely that this speech will be boring or predictable. It will air on every major network at 9 PM Eastern.
Instead, we are pretty confident that the 45th President of the United States is about to stir the pot, and he has already given every indication that he will. From the Associated Press:
Trump’s advisers say he will use his prime-time speech Tuesday to declare early progress on his campaign promises, including withdrawing the U.S. from a sweeping Pacific Rim trade pact, and to map a path ahead on thorny legislative priorities, including health care, infrastructure, and military spending.
“We’re going to spend a lot more money on military,” Trump told “Fox & Friends” in an interview aired Tuesday, saying he could stand to see even $30 billion more than what’s being recommended.
“We’re going to get involved in negotiating. We’re going to be able to get, I think, a lot more product for a buck and I’m going to be very, very serious about it,” he said.
Clearly Trump is not going to give away everything beforehand, but he has already promised some massive reveals. Congress is also waiting for some specific strategy on how he will move forward.
Republicans, impatient to begin making headway on an ambitious legislative agenda, hope Trump arrives on Capitol Hill armed with specifics on replacing the “Obamacare” health care law and overhauling the nation’s tax system, two issues he’s so far talked about in mostly general terms.
Of course they would put the onus on Trump, even though he has given every indication of moving swiftly on every major campaign promise, from repealing and replacing Obamacare to tax reform, from building the wall to advanced screening for terrorists.
But Trump has already moved, he has already set the agenda, and now it is on Congress to move. Clearly Trump is aiming to get an intransigent, slow-moving Congress rolling.
He understands that he cannot make any lasting change, other than rolling back Obama’s executive orders, without the people’s representatives reforming the nation’s laws.
Trump’s speech promises to be accelerant to the fire he has already begun. Washington’s swamp is already being drained: now that Trump has cleared the mes, it is time to build.
To repair health care for the American people. To protect Americans at the borders and at the entry points of our nation. To lower taxes and get businesses in every part of the country booming again.
