President Donald Trump presented his agenda in front of Congress on Tuesday night. For the first time since he announced his candidacy, Trump sounded presidential and smooth. Kemberlee reported he will speak about these topics:

  • Tax and regulatory reform
  • Making the workplace better for working parents
  • Obamacare reform
  • Education
  • Rebuilding the military
  • Taking care of veterans

Trump said:

“A new chapter of American greatness is now beginning. A new national pride is sweeping across our Nation,” he said. “And a new surge of optimism is placing impossible dreams firmly within our grasp.”

He described his address as a “message of unity and strength.”

Trump asked Congress to come together and work on the mess that is Obamacare. Trump and the GOP promised to repeal and replace the health law, but so far no one has come together in agreement. He wants to present a plan that will lower costs across the board and help people buy insurance across state lines.

The president also called education “the civil rights of our time.” He wants his administration to draft an education bill that will help parents choose the right school for their children.

Again, Trump reiterated his promise that he will serve the people of America and wants citizens treated fairly:

And as he did during the presidential campaign, he pushed a nationalist message, making big promises for what will happen when America puts its citizens first: “Dying industries will come roaring back to life. … Crumbling infrastructure will be replaced with new roads, bridges, tunnels, airports and railways gleaming across our very, very beautiful land. … Above all else, we will keep our promises to the American people.”

He said his job is to represent the United States, not the world.

Pelosi had a sour face when he announced all the jobs:
