***Live Updates*** President Trump Delivers First State of Union Address

President Donald Trump will deliver his first State of the Union address tonight while Americans’ satisfaction with the economy is at a 17-year high, workers are feeling the benefits of the tax cuts, and unemployment numbers for people of color are at all-time lows. Democrats, though, are united in their anger and hate, with left-wing agitators even urging lawmakers to have their “Joe Wilson moment” tonight.

But the left will not be unified in its message, as at least five Democrats will jump in front of the cameras after Trump finishes speaking to deliver various responses to the party’s many factions. Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA) will give the party’s official response, and the left is already criticizing the bland Congressman’s selection, arguing that a woman of color should have been chosen to represent the resistance instead of another privileged white guy who inherited his wealth. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), former Congresswoman Donna Edwards, and Virginia Delegate Elizabeth Guzman will all be giving various State of the Union responses. Other Democrats are boycotting the speech.

Conservatives are wondering what Trump will say on immigration and whether he will ask the nation tonight to support a pathway to citizenship for nearly two million so-called Dreamers—including nearly a million who are not current Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.

Inside the halls of Congress, some Democrats are wearing black to support the “Me Too” movement while other Democrats will have DACA recipients and Dreamers as their guests. The White House has invited families who have lost loved ones to MS-13 to sit with First Lady Melania Trump, again forcing the legacy media intent on sweeping any bad news about illegal immigrants under the rug to cover the issue just like Trump, after meeting in 2015 with families who had loved ones murdered by illegal immigrants, forced the media to cover their stories during the GOP primaries.

Stay tuned to Breitbart News for live updates of the address and the reactions to it throughout the evening. ALL TIMES EASTERN.

8:35: Democrats breaking into their salad-bowl factions like they do at DNC gatherings. Al Gore infamously said, “out of one, many.”

 

8:05 PM: Chris Matthews has written two great books on the Kennedys (Kennedy and Nixon and Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit), and he understands why RFK (many of his supporters ended up being Reagan Democrats) resonated with working-class Americans and minorities. He wondered if Joe Kennedy could do the same and blasted liberal donors for making the party toxic to working-class Americans.

Matthews, if he’s honest with himself, will likely be disappointed with Joe Kennedy, who is the prototypical SF-NYC-BOS liberal well versed in social justice and “service” platitudes. But look for liberal white reporters from all the “right zip codes” who went to the “right schools” with all the “right people” and who have PhDs in saying “all the right things” that make them sound smart while they are saying absolutely nothing of substance to gush over Kennedy, cheering him on like privileged plodders who saw themselves in Hillary Clinton rooted for Hillary.

8:00 PM: Joe Kennedy will call Trump a bully in his response: “Bullies may land a punch. They might leave a mark. But they have never, not once, in the history of our United States, managed to match the strength and spirit of a people united in defense of their future.”

7:30 PM:  The White House released some excerpts of Trump’s SOTU speech:

  • Together, we are building a SAFE, STRONG, and PROUD America.
  • We want every American to know the dignity of a hard day’s work; we want every child to be safe in their home at night, and we want every citizen to be proud of this land that we love.
  • Just as I promised the American People from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reform in American history.
  • Our massive tax cuts provide tremendous relief for the Middle Class and small businesses.
  • Since we passed tax cuts, roughly 3 million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses – many of them thousands of dollars per worker.
  • This is our New American Moment. There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.
  • Tonight, I want to talk about what kind of future we are going to have, and what kind of nation we are going to be. All of us, together, as one team, one people, and one American family.
  • Americans love their country. And they deserve a government that shows them the same love and loyalty in return.
  • For the last year we have sought to restore the bonds of trust between our citizens and their government.
  • In our drive to make Washington accountable, we have eliminated more regulations in our first year than any administration in history.
  • We have ENDED the war on American Energy – and we have ENDED the War on CLEAN COAL. We are now an exporter of energy to the world.
  • America has also finally turned the page on decades of unfair trade deals that sacrificed our prosperity and shipped away our companies, our jobs and our nation’s wealth.
  • America is a nation of builders. We built the Empire State Building in just one year – isn’t it a disgrace that it can now take ten years just to get a permit approved for a simple road?
  • I am asking both parties to come together to give us the safe, fast, reliable, and modern infrastructure our economy needs and our people deserve.
  • Struggling communities, especially immigrant communities, will also be helped by immigration policies that focus on the best interests of American Workers and American Families.
  • So tonight I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties, Democrats and Republicans, to protect our citizens, of every background, color, and creed.
  • As we rebuild America’s strength and confidence at home, we are also restoring our strength and standing abroad.
  • Last year I pledged that we would work with our allies to extinguish ISIS from the face of the earth. One year later, I’m proud to report that the coalition to defeat ISIS has liberated almost 100 percent of the territory once held by these killers in Iraq and Syria. But there is much more work to be done. We will continue our fight until ISIS is defeated.
  • Past experience has taught us that complacency and concessions only invite aggression and provocation. I will not repeat the mistakes of the past Administrations that got us into this dangerous position.
