Trump Delivers State of the Union Address

President Trump delivered his State of the Union to a divided congress. He called for unity. Local congressman Anthony Brindisi reacted to the speech. He said that the president highlighted some areas where he hopes he can find common ground. Brindisi said working together is the only way we can create good-paying jobs, lower the cost of prescription drugs, fix our crumbling infrastructure, and take care of our veterans. Congressman Tom Reed also weighed in…noting the economy is soaring. Reed added that now extremists on both sides of the aisle have a choice to make: Will they adopt a willingness to compromise and ensure a legacy of greatness for our children and grandchildren, or instead, choose to play ‘gotcha politics.’
