  • Trump Makes Last Appeal for Wall Funding in State of Union Address

Republicans already face a deficit with female voters, who preferred Democratic candidates in 2018 House races by 19 points, helping to create one of the largest gender gaps in that vote in decades. He retaliated by canceling her trip to Afghanistan to visit USA troops.

He said, "The only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations" an apparent swipe at the special counsel investigation into ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as the upcoming congressional investigations.

A few minutes before, Trump had started talking before Pelosi could give him the traditional introduction, in which she would have said it was her "distinct honor and high privilege to present to you the President of the United States". Brian Kemp, the president called Abrams "unqualified" for statewide office.

Special guest of President and WWII veteran Herman Zeitchik (C), surrounded by Trump family members (top row) and other special guests, is acknowledged by the audience during U.S. President Donald Trump's State of the Union address, February 5, 2019. "Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country.Bipartisan Bill!"

White has continued to serve as symbol for women in politics.

Pelosi's interest in the papers caught the attention of many on social media, who wondered what she could be reading in the middle of Trump's address. Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey.

According to excerpts of her speech, Abrams will argue that all Americans should have economic opportunity and voting access.

Intel: Why Trump's Iran policy is sparking Iraqi outrage
A scheduled meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi was scrapped and the two leaders spoke over the phone instead. Those negotiations, he adds, have been based on the premise that Al Asad would be used to continue the fight against IS.

Trump and Kim's first summit garnered only a vaguely worded commitment by the North to denuclearize.

Trump, surprised, said, "You weren't supposed to do that".

Trump also re-stoked America's culture wars, spending a portion of the speech blasting abortion-rights legislation in NY and Virginia, a move that will endear him to evangelical voters. But they leapt to their feet when he noted there are "more women in the workforce than ever before".

Writing that it "will take days to fact-check all the misrepresentations that the President made tonight", Pelosi criticized the president for "manufacturing a crisis at the border" and "completely ignor (ing) the gun violence epidemic that is claiming lives across the country".

The president said it was time for US troops in Syria to return home - but did not repeat a timescale for withdrawal, which in December he said would be immediate.

Abrams spoke about how her family knew that opportunity is possible in the nation, but not guaranteed. Even Republicans have publicly rebuked him lately for his plans to withdraw troops from Syria and Afghanistan, and party leaders have pressed him not to declare a national emergency bypassing Congress to build the wall.

Can Trump's address win the support he needs?
