Yeah, yeah, it's not a State of the Union...but.
I didn't agree with every point and position made, but overall President Trump did very well tonight. I was especially though the emphasis on merit based immigration was a YUGE shift in the right direction.
The emotional moment of the speech was addressing and recognizing the sacrifice of Carryn Owens, wife of slain Navy Seal Ryan Owens. That was a powerful moment. My prayers and condolences to the Owens family.
Democrats refused to applaud putting American first. What a surprise. A few Democrat "leaders" also sat stone faced during the Owens tribute.
