Twitter reacts to Trump's delayed State of the Union address

"We must reject the cynicism that says allowing every eligible vote to be cast and counted is a "power grab, '" she added, a reference to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's description of House Democrats" efforts to overhaul USA election law.

"The Late Show", hosted by Stephen Colbert, wasted no time Tuesday in conjuring up the Russian response to President Donald Trump's State of the Union address. The president stressed that many women attempting to cross into the USA illegally get sexually assaulted during the journey. Trump said his administration also "has acted decisively to confront the world's leading state sponsor of terror: the radical regime in Iran".

Trump and Pelosi did shake hands before the president began his address, and the speaker was often seen clapping during the speech.

President Trump's State of the Union speech, in which he called for unity but remained hardline on immigration reform and his demand to build a border wall, got mostly positive reviews from viewers, according to surveys.

That's because Trump likely will describe his time in office as, in the words of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday, "two of the most successful years under a first-term president".

"An economic miracle is taking place in the United States and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations", he said.

"If nothing was accomplished and he feels for his career he wants to go elsewhere to win, then that's his decision, honestly". Porzingis, 23, said he had a "great relationship" with the 19-year-old Slovenian, having played against him in Europe.

Pelosi emerged the victor when Trump reopened the government without funding for his border wall - meeting her demand to end the shutdown for negotiations on border security to continue.

And that lack of change could lead Trump to declare a national emergency - or clearly state he will do if a House-Senate border security spending panel cannot strike a deal he will support that includes wall funding by next Friday.

Trump made no mention of an emergency declaration his remarks.

He also defended the principles America was founded on.

"Together, we represent the most extraordinary nation in all of history".

Trump's speech also offered areas of potential bipartisan agreement, such as infrastructure improvements, lowering prescription drug costs and healthcare.

USA to suspend historic Cold War missile treaty with Russian Federation
Moscow and Washington have for years traded claims of the other party being in violation. US withdrawal raises the prospect of further deterioration in U.S.

"Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country", Trump declared.

The summit could help break a deadlock in U.S.

He dismissed former Vice President Joe Biden as "dumb", called Sen. "The shutdown was a stunt engineered by the president of the United States", Abrams said, "one that defied every tenet of fairness and abandoned not just our people, but our values".

Abrams then shifted her speech to address the Republican Party more generally, saying hard-working people are falling behind because of Republicans who don't know their constituents. But they leapt to their feet when he noted there are "more women in the workforce than ever before". "Great nations do not fight endless wars", Trump will say - comments that could upset many in Congress.

Trump defended his contentious plans to reduce USA troop levels in Syria and Afghanistan. Hank Johnson said he would "rather be somewhere else than listening to (Trump) come onto our floor & start talking about groups of people, particularly Latinos, and disparaging them as a people", he wrote on Twitter.
