President Donald Trump sought to unite a deeply divided nation with his call for a “new American moment” during his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Trump declared that there has “never been a better time to start living the American dream.”

Tax cuts and the economy

The president used the speech to talk about his biggest legislative victory, tax reform and reduction, and the healthy American economy.

He said, “Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone. After years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages.”

The president said he kept his promise to Americans and, in his words, “enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history.”

He said, “Since we passed tax cuts, roughly 3 million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses -- many of them thousands of dollars per worker.”

Calling for unity

Speaking directly to millions of Americans watching on television, Trump said, “Tonight, I want to talk about what kind of future we are going to have, and what kind of nation we are going to be. All of us, together, as one team, one people, and one American family.”

Trump offered a deal on possible citizenship for “Dreamers” in exchange for compromises on other immigration issues. He said a path to citizenship could be given to hundreds of thousands of people who entered the U.S. illegally as children. In return, he said, lawmakers must support the building of a wall along the United States border with Mexico. He also said America’s visa lottery program must end.
