This One Tweet About The 2018 State Of The Union Says What We All Need To Hear
While Trump may have been a bit more controlled than any of us expected, what occurred after his first State of the Union address really stole the show. Following Trump's 2018 State of the Union, Massachusetts Representative Joe Kennedy III delivered an empowering speech to the nation. This tweet about the 2018 State of the Union says it all, and we need to hear it.
During his address, Trump discussed his intention to protect and foster the American people.
While this statement was well received by a large majority of the audience, it sparked a fire inside some — most notably, Democrat Joseph Kennedy III, who delivered an address in response to Trump's State of the Union. Kennedy discussed the current tension within America, the importance of the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements, as well as the administration's specific standards in who exactly they are fighting for.
However, it was one statement that hit audiences right at home, and resulted in Twitter users standing up for their beliefs.
Twitter user Andrew Trevino specifically spoke out about Trump's "Americans are dreamers, too," with a view of his own. He said,
Yes. All yes.
During his address, the young Kennedy referenced the current political climate. He alluded to the Trump administration's lack of investment in younger voices, specifically diverse communities' lack of visibility and safety. He said,
Trump's decision to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA, has sparked huge backlash amongst numerous communities as well as fellow politicians. Former president Barack Obama openly voiced his disapproval at President Trump's decision through a statement on Facebook, calling it "cruel" and "self-defeating."
No matter where you were born or where you may go, the American dream applies to all. Let's hope the the Trump administration opens an ear to other voices such as Andrew's.
