Colbert also skewered other aspects of Trump's speech in a late-night monologue.

In each case, Mr. Trump focused on average Americans, real people.

The proposal failed to impress Democrats, who have long been pushing for an infrastructure package.

Presumably, it means that the Trump administration has eliminated policies that penalized coal because of its environmental impact. And that's about it. So much for "distant relatives". Together, we are rediscovering the American way. It requires applicants to have completed a high school education or have at least two years of experience in the past five years in a selection of fields identified by the Labor Department. Shortly after his inauguration a year ago, the president claimed the media had misrepresented the number of people attending the event.

"I think she should smile a lot more often", Sanders said.

During President Trump's State of the Union address, the energy industry was scarcely mentioned.

But there is much more work to be done. When his quotes were presented as being said by Donald Trump, the response was largely negative.

State Representative, Democrat John Deberry said this is the kind of issue republicans and democrats can get behind.
