Women in white: Democrat solidarity stands out at State of the Union

Trump Makes Last Appeal for Wall Funding in State of Union Address

Even Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota joined the rallying call, turning up to the House Chamber in a white jacket with black lapels, and a button reading "ERA yes", (a reference to the Equal Rights Amendment). He retaliated by canceling her trip to Afghanistan to visit US troops.

"Nothing has changed after tonight's delivery by Trump because both sides are simply too dug in to allow any sort of major compromise legislation to occur", Bonjean said.

"Either she was supporting women, and celebrating with the president, or it was an ironic moment, where she's clapping for the women without supporting Trump's statements", she said. "President, get real, '" House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer said Wednesday. If he is really serious about unity, he should stop demonizing those who seek safety in our country and start working in good faith with Congress on immigration, effective border security, and funding the government.

White has continued to serve as symbol for women in politics.

"It was a speech that covered a lot of ground, but the challenge now is what actions will follow the President's words".

Trump began his State of the Union address without being introduced by the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey.

In excerpts released ahead of Abrams' remarks, she calls the shutdown a political stunt that "defied every tenet of fairness and abandoned not just our people, but our values". Many expressed excitement on Twitter about her speech. Polls show he has work to do, with his approval rating falling to just 34 percent after the shutdown, according to a recent survey conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

Sherman saw Trump dealing with issues that appeal to most Americans at the beginning and end of his remarks, but the middle of the speech was all about his push for $5.7 billion for a border wall, which Democrats oppose, as a February 15 deadline to prevent another government shutdown looms.

They paid tribute to the women who came before them and gave a nod to their own achievement, as more women than ever are now representatives in the House.

The president repeated his claim that the Islamic State has been destroyed.

Abrams spoke about how her family knew that opportunity is possible in the nation, but not guaranteed.

Trump, surprised, said, "You weren't supposed to do that". He again called for bringing American troops home from Syria and Afghanistan.

Speaking in front of a record number of female House members - many of who wore white in a nod to the USA suffragist movement - he appeared surprised to receive applause from all sides when he declared that there were now more women in the workforce and more women in Congress than ever before. They sat with Mrs. Trump during the address.
