Tuesday, February 5, 2019, Washington D.C. President Trump delivered his second State of the Union Address. “The agenda I will lay out this evening is not a Republican agenda or a Democrat agenda,” the President told Congress as he opened his second State of the Union address. “It’s the agenda of the American people”… “I ask you to choose greatness”.
During the speech, Trump discussed bipartisanship, the economy, jobs, unemployment, tax reform, energy production, unity, the opioid crisis, prison reform, immigration, border security, trade, infrastructure, prescription drugs, HIV/AIDS, cancer issues, family leave, late-term abortion, national security, US relationship with North Korea, Venezuela, the Middle East, ISIS, Afghanistan and Iran.
Pres. Trump also explained why his administration decided to withdraw from Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the Elimination of Their Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles) that was signed by Pres. Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev on 12/08/1987.
