RNC Chairwoman: President Trump Is Taking A Leadership Role In The World
RNC Chairwoman: Obama Administration Entered Into A Reckless Deal
RNC CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: The reality is that the Obama Administration entered into a reckless deal with Iran, one that made the world less safe. They didn’t put the proper inspections in place, so that we could go in and make sure Iran was ceasing their nuclear programs. These are things that we have to put in place to safeguard our country. Iran has continued to fund terrorism, they not been good actors and I think the president delivered on a campaign promise today and said we are going to go back and we are going to make sure that we are putting in a deal if we go back to the table with Iran that makes this world safer and that’s exactly what Barack Obama should have done, and President Trump once again is taking a leadership role in the world and correcting the mistakes of the Obama Administration.
A CBS News poll found that three-quarters of Americans who watched President Trump’s State of the Union on January 30, 2018 approved of the address.
Eight out of ten viewers said they felt the speech was trying to unite rather than divide the country.
A full 97 percent of Republicans approved of the speech, as did 72 percent of independents and 43 percent of Democrats. The positive rating from independents is a good indication that Trump’s address succeeded in striking a bipartisan, unifying tone.
Sixty-five percent of viewers said the speech made them feel proud, and another 35 percent said they felt safer, while just 14 percent felt scared and 21 percent felt angry.
Interestingly, 72 percent of respondents said they favor the immigration proposals Trump made in his speech, the section of his remarks that were most policy-specific. A greater share of Republicans watched the speech last night (42 percent) compared to the 25 percent of viewers who identified as Democrats and 33 percent who called themselves independents.
President Donald Trump will give his first State of the Union address tonight at 8 PM CST in the Capitol before a joint session of Congress. All major networks and cable news channels will broadcast the speech live. The White House also will stream it live on its site, as will news networks via Facebook.
