President Donald Trump addressed Congress for the first time on Tuesday. In his speech, he urged America to “put its own citizens first”, a call that was well received by almost everyone, with Republicans standing up and cheering.
However, Democrats on the floor provided no representation of support. No applause was accorded to the president’s call from the Democrats side, a call which could be classified as a basic duty for elected officials to do, and that is to take care of the interest of their constituents.
The President’s speech indicated that his win in the election is a voting revolution in which people are united in demanding from their politicians that they above anything else place America first when making decisions.
He said of the voters who elected him in office: “Finally, the chorus became an earthquake and the people turned out by the tens of millions.”
“And they were all united by one very simple, but crucial demand, that America must put its own citizens first,” he adds. Because only then can we truly make America great again.”
When the applause from the republicans simmered down, he continued with his speech saying with the accomplishments of his administration and the promises the President intended to keep.
Ending his speech, he asked that everyone, from the halls of Congress to the people watching in their homes to dream big and believe in America once more.
The president said: “I am asking all citizens to embrace this Renewal of the American Spirit. I am asking all members of Congress to join me in dreaming big, and bold and daring things for our country. And I am asking everyone watching tonight to seize this moment and believe in yourselves. Believe in your future. And believe, once more, in America.
“Thank you, God bless you, and God Bless these United States.”
