On February 5th, 2020, President Donald Trump delivered his third State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. In his speech, President Trump declared that “we will make our country better than ever before.” He highlighted the progress that the United States has made in recent years, including a strong economy, low unemployment, and increased wages. He also discussed his plans for the future, including infrastructure investment, healthcare reform, and immigration reform.
At the start of his address, President Trump noted that the United States is currently in the longest period of economic expansion in its history. He highlighted the strong job growth that has occurred since he took office, with the unemployment rate now at its lowest level in nearly 50 years. He also noted that wages are rising, especially for low- and middle-income workers. He credited his tax cuts and deregulation for the strong economy, and said that the United States is now “the envy of the world.”
The President then discussed his plans for the future. He proposed a major investment in infrastructure, which he said would create 10 million jobs and help the United States compete in the global economy. He also proposed a healthcare reform plan that would lower costs and increase access to care. He also discussed his plans for immigration reform, which would include a merit-based system and increased border security.
The President also discussed foreign policy, noting that the United States is now “more respected than ever before.” He highlighted his efforts to reach a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, and said that the United States is now “leading the fight against radical Islamic terrorism.” He also discussed his efforts to reduce the nuclear threat from North Korea, and noted that the United States is now “leading the world in the development of 5G technology.”
President Trump concluded his address by noting that the United States is now “stronger, safer, and more prosperous than ever before.” He said that the United States is “the most powerful nation on earth,” and that “our future has never been brighter.” He then asked Congress to join him in making the United States “better than ever before.”
The President’s speech was met with both applause and criticism. Supporters praised his optimistic vision for the future, while critics argued that his plans are unrealistic and do not address the real issues facing the country. It remains to be seen whether President Trump’s plans will be realized, but it is clear that he is committed to making the United States “better than ever before.”
