President Donald Trump delivered his 2020 State of the Union address Tuesday night, proclaiming boldly that despite all we have recently been through as a nation, our Union “is stronger than ever before.”
The State of our Union is stronger than ever before!
On Tuesday night, President Trump visited the Capitol House chamber to address a joint session of Congress for the third time. Despite all the recent controversy and chaos, President Trump brushed aside the negativity to focus on the positive changes he has led his administration to achieve.
Declaring boldly that “the State of our Union is stronger than ever before!” the President backed that up with a laundry list of facts, figures and accomplishments. “Our agenda is relentlessly pro-worker, pro-family, pro-growth, and, most of all, pro-American,” the President proclaimed. “We are advancing with unbridled optimism and lifting high our citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed.”
“Jobs are booming, incomes are soaring, poverty is plummeting, crime is falling, confidence is surging, and our country is thriving and highly respected again!” Not only that, we’re making our presence felt around the world. “America’s enemies are on the run, America’s fortunes are on the rise, and America’s future is blazing bright.”
The “years of economic decay are over,” vows President Trump, reminding everyone he doesn’t bow down to foreign leaders like Barack Obama did. “The days of our country being used, taken advantage of, and even scorned by other nations are long behind us. Gone too are the broken promises, jobless recoveries, tired platitudes, and constant excuses for the depletion of American wealth, power, and prestige.”
Thanks to President Trump’s policies of eliminating job-killing regulations, coupled with record-setting tax cuts and fair trade agreements, unemployment across the board “is lower than any administration in the history of our country.”
Military is completely rebuilt
President Trump gave a glowing report on where we stand with battlefield readiness. “To safeguard American Liberty, we have invested a record-breaking $2.2 trillion in the United States Military. We have purchased the finest planes, missiles, rockets, ships, and every other form of military equipment — all made in the United States of America.”
No longer is America acting as the world’s policeman without getting paid for the work. NATO has been finally meeting their obligations. “We are also finally getting our allies to help pay their fair share. I have raised contributions from the other NATO members by more than $400 billion, and the number of allies meeting their minimum obligations has more than doubled.”
One of Trump’s biggest accomplishments in the military sector was the creation of the Space Force. “For the first time since President Truman established the Air Force more than 70 years earlier, we created a new branch of the United States Armed Forces, the Space Force.” President Trump is among those who consider space to be the “final frontier.”
Keep America Great
“The American Nation,” President Trump explains, “was carved out of the vast frontier by the toughest, strongest, fiercest, and most determined men and women ever to walk the face of the Earth. Our ancestors braved the unknown; tamed the wilderness; settled the Wild West; lifted millions from poverty, disease, and hunger; vanquished tyranny and fascism; ushered the world to new heights of science and medicine; laid down the railroads, dug out canals, raised up the skyscrapers — and, ladies and gentlemen, our ancestors built the most exceptional Republic ever to exist in all of human history. And we are making it greater than ever before!”
President Trump ticked off his accomplishments and goals one by one. “Our borders are secure. Our families are flourishing. Our values are renewed. Our pride is restored.” Thanks to his efforts we’re now the “number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world, by far.” Our industries and manufacturing plants are returning from overseas. Trade deals with Mexico, Canada, and China are now equal to both sides.
The Trump administration has made restoring the family a high priority with education initiatives, opportunity zones, and pro-life legislation. President Trump has slashed through the bureaucratic red tape that liberals strung up to improperly separate “church” and “state.” While the state can’t promote any particular faith, it can’t prevent anyone from exercising their own faith, even in schools and government offices.
The list of accomplishments is too much to detail but overall, President Trump’s speech was an inspiration to every American that our President is doing everything in his power to Keep America Great!
