Trump uses State of the Union address to emphasize immigration agenda

Trump uses State of the Union address to emphasize immigration agenda

President Donald Trump delivered his second State of the Union address Tuesday night, offering up the yearly presidential speech on a delayed timeline.

While Trump did not specify which investigations he was referring to during his address, the president has consistently attacked special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between the Russian government and his 2016 presidential campaign as a politically-motivated "witch hunt".

In the very moment he started to speak, President Donald Trump split his State of the Union address in two.

That's down from an estimated 400 to 600 square kilometers (155 to 230 square miles) that the group held at the end of November before Trump announced the withdrawal, according to two officials who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country", he continued.

IS militants have lost territory since President Trump's surprise announcement in December that he was pulling USA forces out, but military officials warn the fighters could regroup within six months to a year of the Americans leaving.

"When I saw Alice's handsome family greet her at the prison gates, hugging and kissing and crying and laughing, I knew I did the right thing", Trump said. "Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards".

Trump is expected to focus much of his prime-time speech on dangers at the border with Mexico.

Despite the fierce partisan disagreements, Trump's speech will feature prominent calls for bipartisanship and unity - a sharp contrast in tone from the president's usual insults and name-calling on Twitter. "America will never be a socialist country".

A recent United Nations report found that the world had just 12 years to limit an irreversible climate change catastrophe, but Trump was unswayed by the research and questioned the political motivations behind the white paper.

"The decision is ours to make".

The president had some bipartisan overtures - talking about a recently enacted criminal justice law, paid family leave, lowering prescription drug costs and dangling, once again, infrastructure.

In her remarks, the Democratic former Georgia gubernatorial candidate blamed Trump for triggering the federal government shutdown in an attempt to secure billions in funding for his border wall, arguing that it "defied every tenet of fairness and abandoned not just our people, but our values". "Americans understand that these are the values our courageous men and women in uniform and our veterans risk their lives to defend. This is wrong, unfair, and together we can stop it", Trump will say.
