State of the Union Address: Unity or Emergency? - Mish Talk

State of the Union Address: Unity or Emergency? - Mish Talk

President Donald Trump on Tuesday was set to deliver a State of the Union speech challenging Democrats to approve funding for his long-sought border wall, but stopping short of declaring a national emergency over it, at least for now.

Samet later defended Trump from accusations he is inciting anti-Semitism and increased nationalism and said: "I love him for what he's doing".

A makeshift memorial stands outside the Tree of Life synagogue in the aftermath of a deadly shooting in Pittsburgh, on October 29, 2018 in which eleven Jews were killed while at Shabbat services. "He is thankful to the First Lady and the Trump family for their support". Trump granted her clemency in June.

Ms Johnson's case was championed by reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, who personally lobbied Mr Trump in the Oval Office.

Among those attending is 11-year-old Joshua Trump, who made headlines last December when it was reported that he was in the process of changing his last name after being bullied at school.

Trump will also point out past accomplishments during the speech, including the passage of a bipartisan criminal justice reform bill, the First Step Act, last year. (Not to mention the fact that her husband uses the mantle of the presidency - frequently, if not primarily - to make fun of people online.) But the SOTU invitation does clarify her anti-bullying initiative: the First Lady wants Americans to stop being mean to everyone named Trump.
