What a sight to see the Democrats sit on their hands and not applaud for how well America is doing these days.
Politics is politics but this is kind of a disgrace to be honest. Nancy Pelosi kept up her feud with Trump and dragged into the State of the Union when she broke protocol with her introduction.
Ann Coulter commented: “Pelosi just violated protocol by not giving traditional State of Union introduction: “Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States.” She said: “Members of Congress, the president of the United States”
Jake Tapper noticed as well: “Traditionally, the Speaker says: “Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States.”
“Speaker Pelosi said “Members of Congress, the President of the United States.”
Trump got even straight away and publicly snubbed her handshake attempt – the two haven’t spoken since Oct according to reports. (See Video Below)
9:45 PM: Trump also rips Democrats for endorsing legislation that would bankrupt the country by providing “free taxpayer-funded healthcare to millions of illegal aliens, forcing taxpayers to subsidize free care for anyone in the world who unlawfully crosses our borders”:
These proposals would raid the Medicare benefits our seniors depend on, while acting as a powerful lure for illegal immigration. This is what is happening in California and other States — their systems are totally out of control, costing taxpayers vast and unaffordable amounts of money. If forcing American taxpayers to provide unlimited free healthcare to illegal aliens sounds fair to you, then stand with the radical left. But if you believe that we should defend American patients and American seniors, then stand with me and pass legislation to prohibit free government healthcare for illegal aliens!
9:42 PM: Trump says nobody should be “blindsided by medical bills” and rips Democrats for proposing a “socialist takeover of our healthcare system.”
That is why I signed an Executive Order requiring price transparency. Many experts believe that transparency, which will go into full effect at the beginning of next year, will be even bigger than healthcare reform. It will save families massive amounts of money for substantially better care.
But as we work to improve Americans’ healthcare, there are those who want to take away your healthcare, take away your doctor, and abolish private insurance entirely. One hundred thirty-two lawmakers in this room have endorsed legislation to impose a socialist takeover of our healthcare system, wiping out the private health insurance plans of 180 million Americans. To those watching at home tonight, I want you to know: We will never let socialism destroy American healthcare!
9:38 PM: Trump makes an “ironclad” promise to protect those with pre-existing conditions + Social Security and Medicare.
