STATE OF THE UNION
The big story this week, of course, was the President’s first State of the Union address. Even the fake news media couldn’t help but acknowledge that President Trump was “inspirational” as he called for unity to find solutions for some of our biggest challenges. While the President highlighted some of his greatest successes in office, including our booming economy, he also placed a spotlight on everyday heroes and Americans who reflect the finest generosity of spirit.
Addressing our booming economy, the President noted that “Our massive tax cuts provide tremendous relief for the middle class and small business.” This is just the beginning of benefits reaching the front door of middle class Americans. Starting this week, 91% of American workers will also start to receive a pay raise as their personal income tax cut takes effect. New jobs and massive investments in our economy are being announced by the day thanks to President Trump’s historic tax cuts.
Highlighting a universal need that should receive strong bipartisan support, President Trump called for the biggest infrastructure deal in American history, when he proposed a $1.5 trillion investment that includes local, state, federal, and private sector collaboration. He said: “We will build gleaming new roads, bridges, highways, railways, and waterways all across our land. And we will do it with American heart, American hands, and American grit."
The President highlighted acts of courage, bravery, and sacrifice by everyday people, including a boy who honored our fallen heroes, a police officer and his wife who adopted the baby of a drug user, a Korean dissident who struggled through atrocities to be free, and many more heroic stories. Profiling these acts of courage and inspiring us to believe the American dream is once again in the reach of all citizens, President Trump reported: “…the State of our Union is strong because our people are strong. And together we are building a safe, strong and proud America.”
