President Trump's speech set Twitter record with 3 million tweets

President Trump's speech set Twitter record with 3 million tweets

"I think there will be an afterglow from this speech", Axelrod continued. Does he take a combative tone toward those who oppose him or make an effort to reach out?

Richard Vatz and Gerald Shuster are experts on presidential communication. Declaring "the time for small thinking is over", Trump appealed to the country to "believe, once more, in America".

"The time for small thinking is over", Trump said.

Trump has done mini-pivots in the past, only to revert to more familiar campaign-style figure from the 2016 presidential campaign, said Republican strategist John Feehery.

Shuster teaches at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania.

And he urged Congress to replace ObamaCare "with reforms that expand choice, increase access, lower costs, and at the same time, provide better health care". George Washington, the first president, was also the first president to give a speech to Congress.

Of course, other presidents who have been soaring in State of the Union-type speech have been criticized for not laying out specific policy agendas.


In a departure from the norm, Donald Trump in his first address as President to Congress stayed on-script. Recent presidents have instead given what is called a speech to a Joint Session of Congress.

It's as though the president is playing a game of good cop, bad cop.

Though Mr Trump has yet to score any legislative accomplishments, his decisions to withdraw the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and order the government to start working on a wall along the US-Mexico border have cheered supporters. George W. Bush talked about his domestic agenda, education and the worldwide community. "It's hurting the average american worker".

The number that Trump undoubtedly will watch is the viewership, and he's got a figure to compare it with: President Barack Obama's first address to a joint session of Congress drew 52.4 million viewers on February 24, 2009. He said, "All I have I would have given gladly not to be standing here today". A number of initiatives that Trump mentioned in his speech - paid family leave, women's health, and clean air and water - are close to his eldest daughter Ivanka's heart.

Besides the president, members of both the House and Senate, Cabinet secretaries and U.S. Supreme Court Justices, will be there. (Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call) Trump greets Sen. Trump will be addressing both houses of Congress, and the speech will take place in the House Chamber. Trump, in a suit with a blue and white striped tie, was flanked by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Vice President Mike Pence. Pelosi also plans to bring a person she says has spoken out about the importance of a free press. And, right now, Trump and his congressional GOP colleagues in particular could use a little normal, especially as they try to show they can govern.

But Trump is the president, and he's not traditional. "We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts, the bravery to express the hopes that stir our souls and the confidence to turn those hopes and dreams into action".

We want to hear from you.
