President Trump on Tuesday delivered his first State of the Union speech to a Congress where Democrats control one chamber. Trump called on lawmakers to "embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good," and said that the only thing that can stop an economic boom "are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations." He shared that he believes if anyone else had been elected president, the United States would be in a major war with North Korea, and revealed that he will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Feb. 27 and 28 in Vietnam. He also said Republicans and Democrats must come together to tackle the "urgent national crisis" that is illegal immigration, and build a "smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier" along the southern border.
