WASHINGTON, D.C.—For several days, Republican leaders in the House and Senate have been assuring reporters and the public that President Donald Trump would deliver a “positive” address to his first joint session of Congress. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday afternoon that he was expecting “an upbeat portrayal of what America could be with the kind of changes we are in the process of implementing.”

  1. No matter what the crime rate is does anybody think whats going on in Chicago and other major cities not murderous carnage ? To contradict Trump’s characterization is false and inaccurate is absurd. Ask the families whose youth have been murdered in gang wars if they think the crime rate has gone down. Sneed’s assertion is another reason Trump supporters rail against the press because his editorial is misleading not Trump’s analysis. I just can’t believe how the lies and distortions of the press and the left continue. My family has survived 5 drive-by shootings in Miami.
