US President Donald Trump took the vow in his State of the Union speech to construct a border wall, which is a source of a profound partisan division, and told Democratic attempts at the “ ridiculous partisan investigations” could affect the US prosperity.
Trump told in a joint session of the US Congress confronting the dispute over his claims that Democrats end their rivalry to sponsor for a border wall between US and Mexico as he claims is required to restrain the illegal immigration and the drug trafficking.
In his 82 minutes long speech, he figured out his political priorities without disclosing any details about specific policy.
The US President described illegal immigration as “an urgent crisis”, but blocked short of announcing a border emergency which would allow him to bypass Congress for wall sponsoring. Instead, he pleaded Democrats and Republicans to figure out a compromise by a deadline of 15th February.
Trump told in the White House of Representatives chamber, along with his main Democratic opponent, new White House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “ In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall, but the proper wall never got built. I will get it built”.
Democrat calls the wall a waste of money and unproductive. During the speech. Democratic Representative Pramila Jayapal posted her opposition opinion on twitter, ”The border is more secure than ever. Enough. ”
With different Democratic-led White House committees escalating the scrutiny on his administration and personal finances, the US President alerted, without presenting evidence, which efforts to inspect his administration, along with the possibility of US involvement in wars abroad, would threaten the US economy.
He also told, “An economic miracle is taking place in the United States and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations ”.
The remark of the US President came as Democrats who now control the White House planned sequences of investigations on Russian interruption in the Presidential election of 2016 and probable conspiracy between the US President and Moscow.
