With pitch for unity, Trump urges Republicans and Democrats to 'choose greatness'

(Worthy News) - President Trump in his State of the Union address Tuesday night issued a call for unity and an end to the political divisiveness that has ensnared Washington.

“We meet tonight at a moment of unlimited potential. As we begin a new Congress, I stand here ready to work with you to achieve historic breakthroughs for all Americans,” the president said in his speech. “Millions of our fellow citizens are watching us now gathered in this great chamber hoping that we will govern not as two parties but as one nation. The agenda I will lay out this evening is not a Republican agenda or a Democrat agenda; it's the agenda of the American people.”

Still, despite the president’s pitch for compromise, he heavily stressed the need for a wall along the southern border as vital for protecting the security of the country, an issue that has divided Republicans and Democrats and spurred the government shutdown that left parts of the government shuttered for five weeks and federal workers without pay.
