Trump to outline spending plans in speech to Congress

Trump to outline spending plans in speech to Congress

Iowa representative Steve King, also a Republican, applauded Trump's remarks and noted that family members of several people killed by undocumented immigrants were presidential guests on Tuesday.

Perhaps the most bipartisan moment in Trump's speech came near the end when he appealed to all Americans to "embrace" what he called a "renewal of the American spirit". Though technically not a State of the Union, the president is expected to use the address to explain his policy agenda and touch on his objectively rocky first month as president.

Speaking to a key campaign promise that has yet to be realized, he said his team is developing "historic tax reform that will reduce the tax rate on our companies so they can compete and thrive anywhere and with anyone". Often a vocal critic of crime in cities like Baltimore and Chicago, Trump has vowed to address that issue - as well as education and jobs - but it was unclear whether he would offer specifics of his plan to do so.

After several weeks of signing executive orders, the administration is beginning to shift to the more hard task of working with Congress on a legislation.

Meanwhile, Republicans rejoiced after Trump's speech, with House Speaker Paul Ryan calling it a "home run". "The longer Trump is in office, the greater the risk that his popularity will decline and that will limit his ability to move legislation", West said.

We would add to the list: to respond with compassion to those pursuing the American dream within broken and unenforced immigration laws.

"It's hard to understand how they're doing policy at this stage - and what that policy is", Cardin said.




"The most important thing Trump needs to tell Congress is what his bright lines are, what he is willing to sign, and what he would not like to see Congress pass. Every policy description has been encapsulated in a single adjective...there's been very little in the way of true detail", said Tom Siomades, head of Hartford Funds Investment Consulting Group.

Thankfully, cartoon Trump, with a clownish red tie tied too long, didn't show up to address a joint session of Congress Tuesday.

President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with House and Senate leadership on Wednesday at the White House.

Details were scant, but the president said the budget would include "a historic increase" in defense spending aimed at ramping up USA military capabilities, more spending on federal law enforcement, and an economic agenda that includes a "major" tax reduction.

In his speech to Congress, Trump gave his strongest backing yet for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation while also claiming victory in prodding increased defense spending.

He said most people convicted of terrorism-related offences since 9/11 were not from the United States, and the USA should not "become a sanctuary for extremists".

Schumer continued: "Of course we want to go after the criminals".
