The President slammed the Democratic Party's recent embrace of socialist principles during his address, saying "Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country".

President Donald Trump delivered his second State of the Union address Tuesday night, offering up the yearly presidential speech on a delayed timeline.

Pelosi's interest in the papers caught the attention of many on social media, who wondered what she could be reading in the middle of Trump's address.

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. And she largely avoided the pitfalls of others who delivered similar responses, including Florida Sen. He brought freshmen Democrats - including Reps.

Instead, the address was met with the usual blend of disdain, sarcasm, and outright anger that most of Trump's speeches and decisions provoke on the internet. Abrams got 85,000 more votes in November than Democrat Hillary Clinton got against Trump in 2016.

Trump will meet with Kim Jong Un at end of February
Trump and Kim's meeting last June in Singapore was the first ever between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader. Da Nang has been the site of several historically important moments in Vietnamese history.

Trump, who argued that his brand of foreign policy was "principled realism", claimed that the USA would be in a "major war" with the DPRK had he not been elected, and confirmed that he would meet with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam.

Foreign policy, including Trump's talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, will be a heavy focus of the speech. She recalled how her family and neighbors overcame adversity by relying on each other and valuing education.

"Making their livelihoods a pawn for political games is a disgrace", she said.

"We do not succeed alone", she added. "When times are tough, we can persevere because our friends and neighbors will come for us".

"Great nations do not fight endless wars", he said, adding that the U.S.is working with allies to "destroy the remnants" of the Islamic State group and that he has "accelerated" efforts to reach a settlement in Afghanistan.

Northwest measles outbreak revives debate over vaccine laws
The health department said there are two other potential cases of measles that are pending as they wait for test results. Around the globe, measles infections were responsible for 110,000 deaths in 2017, the most recent statistical year.

"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.

Speaking from a union hall in Atlanta, Abrams combined her party's vision of a more unified society with her personal story as a black daughter of the Deep South.

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.

"Stacey will speak from both her heart and life experience about the grace of community that lifts us and heals in times of need", said Karen Finney, a Democratic strategist close to Abrams.

The Georgia Democrat introduced herself to the nation months after narrowly losing her bid to become America's first black female governor. And on the question of how Trump has done on "handling issues of special concern to women", 44 percent of men said "excellent" or "good", compared with 23 percent of women.
