President Donald J. Trump delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress this week and it was a hit with viewers. The speech was watched by 22.7 million, which is up 25% from Barack Obama’s final State of the Union back in January 14, 2016. The POTUS had a much less brash tone in this speech than his usual discourse and it resonated with the American people. A CBS News/YouGov poll stated that 76% of viewers approved of the speech and 82%t found it “presidential.” A CNN/ORC poll found that 7-in-10 Americans said the “speech made them feel more optimistic about the direction of the country.”
Even Trump critic Van Jones from CNN said the speech was the moment Trump “became president of the United States.” He went on to describe Trump’s tribute to Navy SEAL Ryan Owens, who died in a raid in Yemen, as “one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics, period” and “it’s the kind of thing that could make Trump a two-term President.”
Before the joint address, video was taken of the POTUS rehearsing his speech in the President’s limo, known as “The Beast,” on the way to Capitol Hill in Washington. Without audio of what President Trump was saying, it was the perfect canvas for BLR to do what they do best.
Personally, I think this is what he was saying.
