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

Democrats tapped the former Georgia House minority leader deliver their party's response to President Donald Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

Trump also did not mention federal workers or the government shutdown in the speech.

If the premise of a SOTU response is to build the platform for a future campaign, then it was a successful speech, starting out, unsurprisingly, with a different angle on Trump's claim that America's economy is the "hottest" in the world. "Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country.Bipartisan Bill!"

Trump called on Congress, including the Democrats" new House majority, to "break decades of political stalemate' and put country over party.

"If there is going to be peace and legislation, there can not be war and investigation", he declared.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi shared a photo of members of the Democratic lawmakers in a sea of ivory on Twitter, revealing that they were making a stand against Trump himself.

So what should we make of Trump's third address to Congress, and in a year when Democrats are gearing up for a crowded primary to decide who will face Trump in 2020? "The president will say the state of the union is strong but the American people know the state of the Trump administration is chaos", he said.

No Confirmed Measles Cases in Jackson County, Health Officials Underline
There hasn't been a case of measles in North Dakota since 2011, according to the Department of Health. Authorities say there are now 38 confirmed cases of measles in an outbreak in the Pacific Northwest.

The partial government shutdown began on December 21 because of disagreements over money to build a U.S. -Mexico border wall. But his message clashed with the rancorous atmosphere he has helped cultivate in the nation's capital, as well as the desire of most Democrats to block his path during his next two years in office.

Stung by his retreat on the government shutdown, Trump has hardly been in the mood for collaboration with the other party, anyway. At the time, the women said they were wearing white not only in memory of the women's suffrage movement but also to show Trump their support for a number of issues affecting women, including affordable health care, reproductive rights and equal pay. On January 25, Trump and Congressional leaders agreed to temporarily fund the government for three weeks. Instead he was urging a congressional committee to work out a border security deal by February 15.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA invited Sajid Shahriar, a MA labor leader who, as an employee of the federal housing department, was also furloughed during the record-long government shutdown during late December and most of January. "It is the agenda of the American People".

In San Diego, high school teacher Stacy Salazar, whose students are primarily Hispanic and low-income, was appalled that Trump wanted to spend billions on walls when her school could not afford basic supplies.

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

Trump and his top aides have also hinted that he is likely to use the address to announce a major milestone in the fight against the Islamic State group in Syria.
