NOW: President focuses on America’s comeback

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- President Donald Trump spoke to both houses of Congress and the nation in his State of the Union Address.

It came one day before the Senate will decide his fate in Trump's impeachment trial. 

This was President Trump's 3rd State of the Union Address setting up things for his next presidential run now through November.

The theme of President Trumps speech was "The Great American Comeback".

Trump focused heavily on health care, immigration, and national security.

The President also voiced what he hopes to accomplish in the last year of his first presidential term and how he hopes that vision includes a second term in the White House. 

Shortly after the address, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer delivered the Democratic response. 

President Trump says, "The state of our Union is stronger than ever before," and "I’ve also made an iron clad pledge to American families. We will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions as well as, "If we hadn’t reversed the failed economic policies of the previous administration the world would not now be witnessing this great economic success.”

Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan followed up with, "The American economy needs to be a different kind of strong. Strong for the science teacher spending her own money to buy supplies. Strong for the single mom picking up extra hours so she can afford her daughters soccer cleats. Strong for the small business owner who has to make payroll at the end of the month.”
