Last night the President of the United States stood before Congress, the American people, and the world and firmly stated “tonight we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”
Today on the broadcast, we discussed last night’s State of the Union address. The President touched on numerous key issues affecting our country, including the economy, infrastructure, national security, immigration, and abortion.
It’s shocking that a sitting President would even have to decry any move toward socialism, but in the current political climate, with the agendas of some rising Democrats following the extreme example of Bernie Sanders and others, it is a necessary message.
President Trump also made a very strong, positive statement in defense of the rights of the unborn:
“There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days.
“Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments from birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and their dreams with the world.”
In perhaps one of the boldest statements ever made in a State of the Union on the subject of life, the President directly urged Congress to ban late-term abortions.
“I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother's womb. Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life.”
The President’s address, which garnered favorable reviews from an overwhelming majority of Americans, also addressed North Korea, Iran, the Middle East, and the official recognition of Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel and the opening of our U.S. embassy there.
