Trump's Speech Offers Democrats Sugar and Vinegar

Trump seemed to have unintentionally given them the opening to gloat.

Trump condemned socialist ideas floating around the Democratic Party. Whose speech did you like better, hers or Trump's? Tiffany Trump wore white instead of black like Ivanka and first lady Melania Trump. But here, he was applauding Democratic women, who are the reason for that new record.

The President's call for co-operation came at a time of stark division between Republicans and Democrats in Washington, highlighted by a government shutdown over disagreements about funding for a border wall.

More fundamentally, Abrams must represent her entire party with an appeal aimed at both a base desperate to reclaim the White House and a wider swath of less-partisan Americans who are uneasy with the Trump administration.

In the chamber, there has always been a growing gender divide with Democratic women outnumbering Republicans. However, women are slightly more likely than men to say abortion is a "critical issue" to them, according to 2018 polling from the Public Religion Research Institute.

"Just let me add that last cycle we were able to work together with Republican women on sexual violence in the military, on the sexual assault scandal with the gymnasts".

Democrats are willing to work with Trump on matters like lowering prescription drug prices and rebuilding the nation's infrastructure if he was honest, the speaker said.

Former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams called out President Donald Trump for having used the American people as pawns during the recent government shutdown.

Other House Democrats were also appalled at Trump's comment on investigations. Her brother Donald Trump Jr. posted a picture of the first children and their respective significant others, writing they were getting ready to watch their father "at the big show". Their opposition was on vivid display as Democratic congresswomen in the audience formed a sea of white in a nod to early 20th-century suffragettes.

White was the colour du jour at this year's State of the Union address.

Had she been offended, asked Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y.in a Wednesday meeting?

Rosewarne said the impact of wearing white comes from women doing it in large numbers, as seen at the State of the Union.

Correction: February 6, 2019 12:00 am - A previous photo caption in this story misspelled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's last name as Octavio-Cortez.
