On Tuesday February 5 President Trump delivered the 2019 State of the Union Address from the traditional venue of chamber of the House of Representatives. The speech was intended to highlight issues where there is bipartisan agreement, such as prescription drug prices and infrastructure funding, but Democrats were critical of the President’s continued focus on a border wall and immigration. The President’s remarks also focused on his success in growing the economy and the job growth during his tenure as President.
