Unity and division in Trumps speech to the nation

on At least one occasion during the century arose a kind of joyful spirit of co-operation in the house.

It was when president Trump drew attention to the large number of american women in employment.

they were a group of white-clad democratic kongresskvinnor up and pretended as if the president was referring to them.

"You wouldn't do that," said Trump jokingly to the gang.

Shortly thereafter, he switched tone and welcoming kongresskvinnorna to Washington DC, which, with few exceptions, are democrats.

Cheers arose, which Trump seemed to rejoice over.

– It is the top, " he said and looked delighted.

with the right turgid words about the importance of collaboration: we'll control the united states together as a nation rather than as two parties, he said. There is unlimited potential in the american people if we overcome our strife. A victory is only a victory if it is beneficial to the whole country. He spoke about the power of american pride. It was a very patriotic speech.

On the other hand, there were also attacks against the opposition, some wrapped, others more explicit. Trump explained that socialism has nothing to do in the united states and the tv cameras zoomed in Bernie Sanders crimson face. He is solid liberal abortlagar and used a graphic language – he was talking about fetuses that can feel pain in the mother's uterus. It drew down applause from the republican part of the room, overwhelmingly male and middle-aged.

Trump also explained that the new cooperation between the parties requires that politicians stop wasting power on unnecessary wars and biased investigations. The latter was difficult not to perceive that a bout against Muellerutredningen or future attempt by democrats in congress to review Trump.

He did not mention the environmental damage these industries cause. Despite the fact that it was upwards 20 degrees in Washington DC this februaritisdag was never mentioned climate change with a single word, or the natural disasters that plagued the coastal states during the year, and claimed the lives of u.s. lives in California among others.

he is a considerable amount of time to portray the risks of migration. He tried to make it clear that he is a friend of legal, regulated immigration and stack in a few spontaneous words that he want to bring in more legal immigrants than the USA ever has done in the past. The promise seemed, however, grabbed out of the air, and were not written in the script.

He repeated that many times in the past to a wall against Mexico would make the country safe and protect the population against the barbarism, in particular the working class. A family from Nevada where granny and grandpa had been murdered just three weeks ago was invited and sat in the stands, as living proof of the risks of illegal immigration.

Trump clarified although he does not require a cementmur from coast to coast, without a barrier, particularly along the stretches where the border guards themselves are asking for more material protection. Perhaps this nuance a the beginning of a call with the democrats. Trump gave at least do not express any immediate desire to shut down the government again.
