President Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union address to Congress last night.
The theme of the speech was "building a safe, strong and proud America." The president pitched a plan to invest heavily in the nation's infrastructure and touted U.S. economic gains during his first year in the White House.
Trump's speech was followed by a Democratic response delivered by Massachusetts Congressman Joe Kennedy III, a rising star in the party and the grandson of the late Robert Kennedy.
