US President Donald Trump delivered his first official State of the Union address on Tuesday night and declared that the “state of our union is strong because our people are strong. Together, we are building a safe, strong and proud America.”

Trump, now a year into his presidency, came into the speech looking to strike a unifying tone.

“All of us together, as one team, one people and one American family, can do anything,” Trump said in his opening remarks. “We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag.”
