President Trump delivered his second State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress, followed by the Democratic response by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.
Trump said we must reject the politics of revenge and resistance because victory is not winning for our party, it is winning for our country.
“We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good,” Trump said Tuesday night.
“Together we can break decades of political stalemate,” Trump said. “We can bridge all divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. The decision is ours to make. We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction. Tonight, I ask you to choose greatness.”
Earlier in the day, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told FOX News that the theme of this year’s State of the Union is ‘Choosing Greatness.’
