Review of President State of the Union Address

Priorities include Addressing Illegal Immigration and Rising Healthcare Costs

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump delivered his State of the Union address. In his speech, the president recognized two great anniversaries America will celebrate this year: the 75th anniversary of the Allied liberation of Europe in World War II and the 50th anniversary since Americans landed on the moon. The president then took some time to reflect on all of his Administration's achievements during his first two years in office.

Following this, he shared some of his goals for the upcoming year. This included tackling the issues of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and the opioid crisis. In addition to this, he stated that lowering the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs is also a top priority for him. President Trump closed his speech by saying, "Our most thrilling achievements are still ahead. Our most exciting journeys still await. Our biggest victories are still to come. We have not yet begun to dream."
