President Trump’s first speech to the joint session of Congress was a big win for his administration, and it gave the nation an opportunity to see just how presidential Trump could be.
However, I would argue that the speech was quite important for another reason; it unmasked the Democrat Party as the enemy of the American people.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson saw the same thing and expounded on what I mean in a recent segment on Fox News.
“They didn’t greet him (the President) when he walked in, they didn’t applaud when he said we’re going to put American interests first, they groaned when he brought up the victims of immigrant crime, raising the obvious question whose side are you on exactly?”
Whose side are the Democrats really on? I think that’s a perfect question, and one without a good answer for America.
The honest truth here is that Carlson is spot on in his analysis. President Trump is a populist nationalist, who thus far has done quite a bit to please his conservative base, but much of what the President has suggested as policy (from his trade plans, to his tariff ideas, to his infrastructure spending plan) are not at all conservative. Yet, even on these issues where Democrats would normally be cheering in support, they have instead chosen to stand obstinately against President Trump. It’s a worrisome trend, and it could tell us a lot about how the Democrats plan to “work” over the coming Trump era.
