Tuesday night’s State of the Union Address given by Donald Trump was another that will definitely go down in history. And there were multiple memorable moments that have had the American public commenting constantly for the past forty-eight hours. And although his eighty-two-minute speech marked another huge milestone in American politics (it’s the third-longest State of the Union address in history) the aftermath of this particular address has been making many relays their feelings, especially in light of his most recent public outing.
According to The Hill Trump’s speech was equal parts fiction and polarization, but what else could be expected from the great Master of Division?
In many ways, Trump’s 80-minute speech represented a starting gun for his reelection campaign. It was short on bipartisan policy proposals and included plenty of red meat for his base that he will need to turn out at the polls in order to propel him to a second term in November.
And don’t think that social media didn’t notice the tricks he had up his sleeve.
Pop Culture reports that Trump is still allowing words to fly out of his mouth like bats out of Hell by threatening Senator Mitt Romney and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (who ripped his speech in half after he was done). And he let his feelings be known during the annual National Prayer Breakfast.
In excerpts from his speech, Trump said, “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong nor do I like people who say, ‘I pray for you,’ when they know that’s not so. So many people have been hurt and we can’t let that go on,” seemingly referring to a past comment Pelosi made about praying for him regularly.
He also took a subtle shot against Sen. Romney as well.
“We have allies, we have enemies, sometimes the allies are enemies but we just don’t know it. But we’re changing all that,” he later added, possibly referring to Romney, who was the only Republican Senator to break with his party and vote against Trump.
Twitter couldn’t believe that Trump would take time out to make his disappointment known during the gathering of bipartisan officials, with many agreeing his timing and subject matter were more than distasteful.
At the National Prayer breakfast, Trump calls those who impeached him “very dishonest and corrupt people.”
That’s the President of the United States.

One user tweeted “Dear @realDonaldTrump: Your remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast were petty, small and godless. I will pray for you.” with another stating “Trumps speech at Prayer Breakfast is frightening. This is scary sh-t. He’s going to be vindictive.” The echoing sentiment seems to be that Trump, who was recently acquitted from his impeachment hearing, is on the warpath and ready to shame and vilify all those who oppose him. Everyone should take notice of what’s going on, because this may just be the beginning of his latest power trip.
