President Donald Trump kicked off 2018 with his first official State of the Union address, during which he made it clear that the safety and security of the American people would be his top priority.
“My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans. To protect their safety, their families, their communities and their right to the American dream. Because Americans are dreamers too,” he said. (RELATED: Poll: Trump Approval Rating Skyrockets After State Of The Union)
