Trump pledges 'buy American' measures in address to Congress

"President Donald Trump reached for poetry and conjured a vision of common national objective Tuesday during his first address to Congress, shifting his tone from the dark, searing approach of his previous big speeches to the nation", wrote Stephen Collinson of CNN. On CNN post-speech, Jake Tapper gave credit to "a much more subdued President Trump". He said the reason Trump is not likely to change is because his supporters like his strong criticism of the news media and Democrats.

This was his first speech, he may get better as time goes on, or he may maintain a odd contrast between his spontaneous speaking and what he says during prepared talks. Trump said that this was the time to let Americans purchase health insurance across state lines.

Mr Tim Albrecht, a Republican strategist in Iowa, said the speech was Mr Trump's best opportunity to date to explain where he wants to take the country. The calls for bipartisanship with which Trump ended his speech weren't a gesture of outreach but a demand for submission. But then, that's also what the other side of the aisle says when the other party is in office, right?

The 16-term lawmaker's remarks quickly drew a rebuke from Trump, who tweeted that Lewis was "all talk, talk, talk - no action" and that he "should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in disgusting shape and falling apart". We all salute the same flag.
