Democrats Refuse to Support Putting “Americans First”

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

Democrats refused to stand and applaud President Donald Trump’s call for America to “put its own citizens first” at his first address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night.

Speaking of the voting revolution that resulted in his election win, Trump said the people who voted for him were united by a demand that politicians put the country first when making decisions. “Finally, the chorus became an earthquake,” he said of the voters who swept him into office in November, “and the people turned out by the tens of millions.”

“And they were all united by one very simple, but crucial demand, that America must put its own citizens first,” he continued. “Because only then can we truly make America great again.”

Republicans immediately stood and cheered Trump’s call, but Democrats offered little to no visual support for what some would characterize as a call for elected leaders to do their most fundamental duty — look out for the interests of their constituents.

“Dying industries will come roaring back to life,” Trump continued when Republicans quieted back down. “Heroic veterans will get the care they so desperately need. Our military will be given the resources its brave warriors so richly, richly deserve. Crumbling infrastructure will be replaced with new roads, tunnels, airports across our beautiful land. Our drug epidemic will slow down and ultimately stop. And our neglected inner cities will see a rebirth of hope, safety and opportunity.”

“Above all else, we will keep our promises to the American people,” he said.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
