Democrats Cope With State Of The Union By Acting Out

President Trump: Democrats do nothing to secure border, national emergency still possible

President Trump: Democrats do nothing to secure border, national emergency still possible

Trump will likely paint the United States' southern border as being in a state of emergency, insisting that his wall is a matter of national security and that only a wall can prevent an invasion of gang members, caravans, drug cartels and terrorists. We will build a Human Wall if necessary.

Rather than Republican Paul Ryan, Pelosi will for the first timein this administration take her prominent position as House speaker, seated just behind Trump's left shoulder for the speech.

Meanwhile, some White House officials are trying to spin the upcoming speech as positive and unifying. As I wrote last month, Congress has the power to overrule presidential emergency declarations: Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi would no doubt relish the chance to put every congressional Republican on the record either against Trump or against their supposed small-government principles.

The funding for the construction of a physical barrier along the southern border was the focal point of the recent government shutdown, which became the longest in US history.

The Democrats' histrionics are expected to be even more intense this year, now that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will be sitting directly behind President Trump at the podium.

In what appeared to be a retaliatory move one day later, Trump postponed a congressional delegation's trip to Afghanistan at the last minute, writing, "I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate". Trump's approval rating before his third address is the lowest of any president except Ronald Reagan. Trump's first ever State of the Union address, delivered January 2018, clocked in at 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, a Democrat popular for her progressive-leaning politics, reportedly plans to bring a sexual assault survivor who spoke out during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, himself accused of sexual assault.

There's good reason to believe the speech, like so many others apparently penned by his main speechwriter Stephen Miller, will be a series of empty clichés paired with lurid and possibly pornographic descriptions of violence committed by the dark-skinned immigrants who haunt Trump's imagination.

Mr Trump's speech also will offer an olive branch to opponents as he looks toward the 2020 election, targeting areas he sees for potential bipartisan agreement, such as infrastructure improvements, lowering prescription drug costs and health care.

The president is also expected to call for political unity and an end to the partisan politics dividing the nation. "He is thankful to the First Lady and the Trump family for their support". He also bizarrely stated Trump's policies have been bad for the middle class.

Trump didn't seem to be in a new bipartisan mood late Tuesday morning when he tweeted that Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer was "already criticizing my State of the Union speech, even though he hasn't seen it yet".

Don't bully a Trump - all 4,788 of them. His remarks will be followed by two responses: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will deliver the Democratic response, and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra will give the Spanish-language remarks.
