As a conservative, I have not always agreed with President Trump but as a patriot, I have and always will support the president of the United States. That being said, I could not be prouder of the speech he delivered during his first Joint Address to Congress. For the critics who formally complained about his ability to be presidential, last night's address should give not only give them hope but I believe it shows that we can become a united America.
I absolutely loved that President Trump addressed issues and laid out plans going forward for national security, border control, tax reform, supporting our armed forces, healthcare and many others important to the American people. If this doesn't motivate Congress on both sides to put their issues aside and come together to do the work of the people, I don't know what will.
As a Conservative Urbanite (living in a metropolitan city), I was especially interested to hear President Trump plans on reducing inner-city violence, crimes and stopping drugs from pouring into our country, poisoning our youth and expanding treatment to those who have become addicted to drugs. I am particularly looking forward to his plan to coordinate actions of the intelligence community & law enforcement organizations to create an aggressive strategy tackle the violence that is harming of our communities.
Perhaps out of so much I was proud to see and hear during his address to congress, as a U.S. veteran, the part that made me most proud was his recognition of Carryn Owens, the widow of US Navy Seal Special Ops Senior Chief William Ryan Owens who died serving and protecting this country. For me and most, if not all of Americans, it was one of the most powerful moments I have ever witnessed from this president to date.
All and all, if this speech was any indication of what’s to come from our 45th President, I can’t wait to see what he has in store.
What are your thoughts on the speech?
