President Trump, in his secondly weekly address, touched on a range of different topics.

Five takeaways are highlighted below:

1. The President touted his nomination of Neil Gorsuch for the United States Supreme Court whom he described as one of the most qualified people ever to be nominated for this post.  He noted that Judge Gorsuch is a graduate of Columbia, Harvard, and Oxford and a man of principle with an impeccable resume. Furthermore, he said the judge is widely respected by everyone and has a  proven track record of upholding the Constitution and ought to be confirmed by both parties to serve on the Supreme Court bench to fill the vacancy left by the late  Justice Antonin Scalia. 

2. The President noted that his administration has taken significant action to roll back the massive regulations that he considered to have had a devastating and crippling effect on the American economy.

3. He said people can be encouraged by the January employment report which showed that the private sector added 237,000 jobs last month. He said this was partly due to a new prevailing spirit in the country and declared that going forward it’s going to be a new ball game.

4. He stated that his administration was determined to deliver more opportunity, jobs, and safety for the African-American citizens of the country. “America can really never, ever rest until children of every color are fully included in the American Dream—so important. I think, probably, one of my most and maybe my most important goal. It is our mutual duty and obligation to make sure this happens,” said the President.

5. The President bemoaned the death of Chief Special Warfare Operator William “Ryan” Owens and described him as a great man who gave his life for his country and for the American people. “Our debt to him and his family, a beautiful family, is eternal,” stated the President.  

He further added that “God has truly blessed this nation to have given us such a brave and selfless patriot as Ryan. We will never forget him. We will never ever forget those who serve. Believe me. And I will never forget that my responsibility is to keep you—the American people—safe and free.”
