President Trump’s very first State of the Union address receive a pretty good approval rating (48%) according to a CNN poll, but what did federally elected officials think about the speech?
As expected, Democrats all frowned on the speech, pointing out what he didn’t say and did not give any praise for what he did say.
Republicans clapped and cheered the president, and echoed his thoughts and words.
Here are what just a few of Florida’s congressional delegation had to say about the president’s speech.
Here are a few things the President didn’t talk about: his refusal to implement sanctions on Russia, he ignored the #MeToo movement where women&men are demanding safe, equal workplaces,&his tireless attempts to sabotage the health&economic security of women around the world #SOTU

Wait, I was just going over the speech again looking for the part about protecting the Special Counsel’s investigation into Russia’s attack on our democracy. I still can’t find it.

Donald Trump pretends to champion hardworking Americans, but he has sided with giant corporations every chance he gets. #GOPTaxScam

The President hit the right issues in his address to Congress — jobs & economy, national security, the drug epidemic and border control. Encouraging to see him highlight the need for bipartisan agreement. Washington dysfunction must end. #sayfie
