Americans are dreamers, too. Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States
Plenty of folks are writing the particulars of President Trump's address last evening so no blow-by-blow commentary from me.
Short and sweet ...
So Ol Trump Ups (his "America first" game).
Citing accomplishments and confirming direction, he delivered - using the word "I" sparingly and "we" and "us" repeatedly (the word "America" more than 80 times).
From patriotism (and the expected simplest of respectful gestures thereof before flag and anthem) to defense to immigration to economics to reminder 'In God We Trust' there was plenty for every (objective) citizen to cheer and enemies to fear.
A personal thought throughout ...
We have a strong President who is confident, competent, determined, focused, and driven to action out of love for and for the betterment of country.
Any elected (or appointed) official expected to be in the audience but was not out of contempt is a child. Voters, they are not worthy of the title 'public servant.' Remove them.
At the end, I was disappointed.
For after SOTU remarks was perfect opportunity for our President to transition - to read the four-page House Intelligence Committee surveillance memo; still wet, the ink.
What a closing that would have been.
A dream closing; albeit nightmare for some.
A(nother) first for (winning) America.
But, "Bravo!, Mr. President!"
