White House expects to take action on 5G, artificial intelligence soon

President Donald Trump pushed hard for the moment when he could deliver this State of the Union address with all the pomp the Capitol venue can offer - robed Supreme Court justices, solons of the Senate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wearing suffragette white, and prime time on America's TV sets.

"We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good", Trump said.

But it's traditional for the speaker to introduce the president before an address to a Joint Session of Congress.

Like Portnoy, he said Trump started before Pelosi could address the audience. But his message clashed with the rancorous atmosphere he has helped cultivate in the nation's capital, as well as the desire of most Democrats to block his path during his next two years in office.

The recent 35-day partial government shutdown over wall funding was evidence of Trump's weakened position.

"Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country", he said.

The national debt has ballooned to almost $22 trillion and recently accelerated thanks in large part to Trump's 2017 tax cuts. He retaliated by canceling her trip to Afghanistan to visit USA troops.

Trump, however, is digging in on trade.


"Don't sit yet. You're going to like this", Trump countered.

Trump has promised to massively increase tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods if the two sides can not reach an agreement by March 1.

"House Democratic Caucus supports a well-regulated, free market economy that is also anchored in a robust social safety net including Social Security and Medicare", Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries told reporters Wednesday when asked about Trump's remarks. And his administration continues to ignore the real needs and priorities of the American people - on health care, education, climate change, immigration reform, and so many other critical matters - instead listening to the special interests, billionaire campaign donors, and insider lobbyists. While Trump did confirm a second summit with the dictator in Vietnam, the speech was light on major announcements.

Bonnie Watson Coleman and Jimmy Gomez brought immigrants in the United States illegally who spoke out about their employment at Trump's resort in Bedminster, NJ.

Trump is also expected to address USA peace talks with the Taliban.

Late last month, Sen.

The president said it was time for US troops in Syria to return home - but did not repeat a timescale for withdrawal, which in December he said would be immediate.

"As a candidate for president, I loudly pledged a new approach", he said. Trump, though he has refrained from personally attacking her looks or character as he does with other rivals, said last weekend she was a danger to the country. And Republicans like new Houston Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, have warned Trump against a complete withdrawal from Syria.
