More than eight out of 10 Americans, 81 percent, who watched President Donald Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday night think he was trying to unite the country, not divide it, a CBS News poll found.
In what could be the most memorable line of the evening, President Trump countered the label used by the left to describe the children of immigrants whose parents broke the law to come to America.
Our state and interstate highways and bridges are actually in better shape than ever. It also would be beneficial for Trump's political standing at a time when his sagging popularity is threatening the Republican Party with losses in the midterm election.
Obama, for example, averaged 31 million viewers for his final State of the Union in 2016.
"The president made 2017 the Year of the Manufacturer with his unrelenting focus on improving the lives of manufacturing workers", Mr. Timmons said. "What we need to do is be responsible adults and realize we're not going to get everything we want, and carve a pathway forward".
It's up to them to break the news to Trump that staffing and technological monitoring make much more sense than the astronomical expense of seizing thousands of miles of private property to ruin Mother Nature with a largely symbolic structure that will be breached, no matter how tall it is built or how deep its foundation is dug. His speech reflected it. Many absorbed his four pillars for immigration policy as a mean-spirited screed. The fourth and final pillar protects the nuclear family by ending chain migration, he said, ruing that under the current broken system, a single immigrant can bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives. That is sorely missing from the Oval Office right now.
"Hoyer added: "'Americans love their country, ' the president said in his speech, 'and they deserve a government that shows them the same love and loyalty in return.' Dreamers love this country too, and they deserve action from Congress to end the fear and uncertainty they are facing as a result of a crisis of the president's own making". But he also resurrected controversies he stoked, including his criticism of NFL players who don't stand for the national anthem. Trump, known for abrasive and often off-script speeches, stayed on track during his address - a rather unexpected occurrence. Trump's next few months will set the trajectory for the rest of his term. Nothing suggested any change in Trump's behavior that might lead him to govern less divisively.
But the president offered no new sweeping initiatives or a plan for breaking through the partisan gridlock.
Apple wrote the $75 billion includes expected "repatriation tax payments of approximately $38 billion". If approved for green card, these visa holders wait for years for their turn, given the massive backlog caused by the per-country annual cap on the number of permanent residencies.
