  • Trump Makes Last Appeal for Wall Funding in State of Union Address

Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Tiffany Trump applaud as President Donald Trump delivers his State of the Union address.

The statement confirmed what many had already tweeted: that not only did Pelosi's sardonic gesture make a statement, but that Trump didn't even notice - he actually thanked her!

"I am asking you to defend our very unsafe southern border out of love and devotion to our fellow citizens and to our country", he said.

Socialism means different things to different people, but it's defined by Merriam-Webster as "any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of good", per National Review.

Before Mr Trump was even halfway through his 85-minute speech, Twitter was in hot debate over whether Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was giving the president a sarcastic clap or going as far as - in internet speak at least - doing a real-life clap back.

But not necessarily the man who occupies that office, a distinction Pelosi has suggested throughout Trump's presidency.

Stung by his retreat on the government shutdown, Trump has hardly been in the mood for collaboration with the other party, anyway.

She said we can do more to curb climate change and to defend civil liberties, but not without the guarantee of the right to vote.

Samsung has also achieved the center of attention by promising a bendable device in the first half of 2019. There is also a possibility that there will be another 5G handset, just that it won't be a foldable one.

Pelosi, who appeared to be reading along on her copy of the president's speech, looked up, rose from her seat and began to enthusiastically clap, her arms stretched toward the president, who then turned around to face her. What we do know is that her white Roland Mouret ensemble fully stood out from the darker hues on her side of the room. And frankly she's disappointed that you thought this would work.

Since Republicans expressed more enthusiasm for Trump's message than Democrats, he might have unintentionally angled toward them.

The moment signaled Pelosi's example to the Democrats she leads. Pelosi stood and reached out with both hands to acknowledge them.

Turning to foreign policy, another area where Republicans have increasingly been willing to distance themselves from the president, Trump defended his decisions to withdraw US troops from Syria and Afghanistan.

In choosing Abrams, Schumer also gives a nod to the importance that black women have long played in anchoring the Democratic base, including in many battleground states.

"That's great", Trump said.

"If there is going to be peace and legislation there can not be war and war and investigation", Trump said.
