RUMP SETS AMBITIOUS AGENDA IN SPEECH TO CONGRESS

President Trump Tuesday night called for a “new chapter of American greatness,” as he made economic revival the centerpiece of his first address to Congress – issuing a call to “restart the engine of the American economy” through tax cuts, better trade deals, immigration enforcement and a $1 trillion infrastructure program.

“Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. Every problem can be solved. And every hurting family can find healing, and hope,” Trump said, urging lawmakers to “join forces” to deliver.

NEW TRAVEL BAN DELAY

President Trump will not sign a new travel ban until later in the week, a senior administration official told Fox News. Trump was reportedly expected to sign a new refugee and immigration executive order Wednesday, one day after addressing lawmakers at a joint session of Congress.

One of the petition’s organizers told the BBC that the message is intended to the eligible candidates running for office: “Hey guys, you don’t really make us dream.”
