State of the Union Recap, in Gifs

By: Kayla Pasacreta

After sending the country into a 35-day government shutdown only to receive zero border wall funding, (y’all’s) President Donald Trump delivered his State of the Union address a week after it was originally scheduled.  He called for “peace and legislation, not war and investigations”, bipartisanship, low prescription drug prices, and border security.

  • "If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation. It just doesn't work that way."

Sure, Jan.

  • Speaker Pelosi was all about the sarcastic pettiness, co-signing Trump’s remark that the nation needs to “reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, promise, and the common good.”

Other notes;

  • He vowed to invest in HIV/Aids funding so that the disease is “eliminated” within the next decade

  • He called for an end to late-term abortion

  • Called on Congress to take immigration more seriously and pointed to crimes made by immigrants

  • Bragged about the economy and low unemployment rates (thanks, Obama!)

Stacey Abrams also made history last night as the first ever African-American woman to deliver the Democratic response/rebuttal to the State of the Union.
