No wall on White House talking points on State of the Union

The document, obtained by Bloomberg News, shows how the president's aides are trying to orchestrate an echo chamber of accolades for Mr Trump's address, instructing supporters who may be interviewed by media on what adjectives to use as they deliver praise.

Trump declared his administration would make a national commitment to end transmission of the virus that causes AIDS, with a goal of stopping its spread in the United States by 2030. When rank-and-file Democrats began to loudly groan at some of Trump's immigration rhetoric, at least twice she lifted her hand to shush them. And she largely avoided the pitfalls of others who delivered similar responses, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida for repeatedly drinking water, Democratic Rep. Joe Kennedy III for his excess ChapStick, then-Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal for a sing-song delivery.

Broken down by political party, the CBS survey found that 97 percent of Republicans approved of Trump's speech, 30 percent of Democrats did and 82 percent of independents agreed.

Turning to foreign policy, another area where Republicans have increasingly been willing to distance themselves from the president, Trump defended his decisions to withdraw USA troops from Syria and Afghanistan. Geraldine Ferraro did the same when she was named America's first female Vice President nominee. The video will first have Trump's speech, followed by Abrams'.

But I did watch the entire Democratic "response" to the SOTU over coffee today.

Running for governor, Abrams talked often of her parents and the challenges they faced as children of the segregated Jim Crow South. And his administration's cruel legacy of family separation and other blatant anti-immigrant policies still haunt us and violate our values as a nation.

"We do not succeed alone", she added. He added that the United States is now not only the "number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world", but is a net energy exporter for the first time in 65 years. "That's why I started a nonpartisan organization called Fair Fight to advocate for voting rights".

"One important thing we didn't hear from President Trump tonight was addressing climate change".

"This is the next battle for our democracy, one where all eligible citizens can have their say about the vision we want for our country", Abrams said.

"The foundation of our moral leadership around the globe is free and fair elections, where voters pick their leaders - not where politicians pick their voters", she said.

"While I acknowledged the results of the 2018 election here in Georgia, I did not and we can not accept efforts to undermine our right to vote", she said. What we do know is that her white Roland Mouret ensemble fully stood out from the darker hues on her side of the room. "But none of these ambitions are possible without the bedrock guarantee of our right to vote", she said. Trump resisted any shots at Abrams leading up to their prime-time juxtaposition. Brian Kemp, the president called Abrams "unqualified" for statewide office.

"The only thing that can stop it", he said, "are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations" - an apparent swipe at the special counsel investigation into ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as the upcoming congressional investigations.
