President Trump gave his first State of the Union speech on Tuesday evening and said that he’s gone forward with a clear vision and righteous mission to make America great again for all Americans even though several of his claims were exaggerated and not truthful.
After facing a difficult legislative year in Congress attempting to repeal Obamacare, even with Republican majorities in the House and Senate, President Trump was successful eliminating the individual mandate, requiring all Americans to purchase health insurance, only by attaching it within his newly approved tax reform bill.
During his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening, President Trump claimed falsely that “we repealed the core of Obamacare.”
In reality, the main central core of Obamacare remains in place for Americans, including the expansion of Medicaid and the marketplaces.
Put Our Hands On Our Hearts For the Pledge Of Allegiance
In 2016 President Trump tweeted a series of biting tweets directed towards NFL owners.
He tweeted numerous times that NFL owners should fire NFL football players who choose to not honor the American flag by refusing to stand during the national anthem.
During his address on Tuesday night, President Trump singled out a 12 yr. old boy named Preston who was a invited guest to attend the State of the Union address because of his patriotism after placing 40,000 American flags on the gravesites of military veterans.
President Trump used Preston’s story to inject a heavy dose of patriotism in his address with North Korean styled prescriptions about how to reverence the flag and the national anthem.
He even went so far as stating that Americans should place their hands over their chest when saluting the flag.
“Preston’s reverence for those who have served our Nation reminds us why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem.”
We Have Ended The War On American Energy
President Trump said in his address that in their drive to make Washington accountable, “we have eliminated more regulations in our first year than any other administration in history” and added, “we have ended the war on American energy and we have ended the war on clean coal.”
The term “clean coal” is a misnomer used to soften the image of coal.
In reality, there is no such thing as “clean coal” because it still causes considerable damage to the environment.
After appointing a climate change denier to run the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and rolling back Obama era car emission guidelines in August that make cars more fuel efficient for cars and trucks in model year 2022-2025 while showing preferential treatment for the fossil fuel industry, President Trump’s administration has declared a war on clean energy.
Many Car Companies Are Now Building And Expanding Plants In The United States-Something We Have Not Seen For Decades
While overlooking the fact that several car companies such as Huyandi and Toyota have already opened factories in the U.S. since 2005, President Trump claimed in his address that “many car companies are now building and expanding plants in the United States-something we have not seen for decades.”
Tonight I Am Calling On The Congress To Finally Close The Deadly Loopholes That Have Allowed Ms-13 And Other Criminals, To Break Into Our Country.
President Trump used a tragic situation involving two invited families attending the State of the Union address who lost their daughters in 2016 during a shooting from members of an international criminal gang, Ms-13, that originated in Los Angeles, to make an appeal from Congress for tougher immigration standards.
“Many of these gang members took advantage of glaring loopholes in our laws to enter the country as unaccompanied alien minors– and would up in Kayla and Nisa’s high school.”
Because Americans Are Dreamers Too
Later in this address, President Trump changed the definition of “Dreamers” a widely used term that applies to DACA children of immigrants who illegally entered the country and lack U.S. citizenship.
President Trump said that Americans are dreamers as well and watered down the meaning of “dreamers” as it relates to DACA.
Claiming that his highest loyalty, compassion, and constant concern is for America’s children, America’s struggling workers, and America’s forgotten communities, President Trump explained that his sacred duty is to defend Americans and protect their safety and the right to the American Dream.
“Because Americans are dreamers too” President Trump said.
