President Donald Trump gave the nation a positive plan for America's renewal before a joint session of Congress tonight. I haven't been so pleased with such a speech since the days of Reagan.
From foreign policy to domestic infrastructure, to wars against Islamic terrorism to domestic crime and everything in-between, Trump spelled out what he wants to get done. He called on the Democrats to end their pettiness and to join in to solve the nation's problems. He hit strongly on jobs for American workers.

For the most part, the Democrats essentially sat on their hands while the GOP majority gave standing ovations. The Democrats groaned like corn-holed pigs when Trump announced the formation of VOICE for victims of illegal alien crimes.
There was hardly a dry eye in the House chamber (except the uncaring Democrats) when the widow of Navy SEAL Ryan Owens received over a two minute standing ovation.
While Trump may not be a great orator like Ronald Reagan, for him tonight was a grand slam. A job well done!
First Lady Melania Trump looked hot tonight, as usual.
