Last night, Donald Trump gave his first speech to Congress as President of the United States. The reviews are now in, and Trump is celebrating after Republicans and Democrats alike spoke out to praise his speech.
“THANK YOU!” Trump tweeted this morning, undoubtedly referring to those who have said what a great job he did.

“I thought that was a bold, positive speech,” said Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a fierce Trump rival in the 2016 GOP primary, according to Fox News. “My number one priority in the Senate has always been jobs and economic growth. That’s why I was so energized by President Trump’s speech.”
CNN contributor Van Jones, a fierce critic of Trump’s, agreed. The liberal TV personality praised Trump for the moment he honored a fallen Navy SEAL by talking directly to his wife.
“He became President of the United States in that moment, period,” said Jones. “That was one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics.”
“If he finds a way to do that over and over again, he’s going to be there for eight years,” he added.
