Believe in America: Trump reboots his presidency with condemnation of hatred, a rousing vision of what country can be by 250th anniversary of independence and a heartbreaking appearance by the widow of SEAL hero whose father snubbed him
- President Trump addressed both houses of Congress in a Joint Session just over a month into his presidency
- New U.S. leader channeled Kennedy to speak of the 'courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts'
- But bluntly political speech also tells the House and the Senate to take action on his agenda
- He told them to 'increase funding for our veterans,' pass 'historic tax reform', 'repeal and replace Obamacare,' and 'help ensure new parents have paid family leave'
- Most electrifying moment of address lasting slightly over one hour was when he paid tribute to William 'Ryan' Owens, SEAL killed on raid in Yemen last month
- The SEAL's widow Carryn Owens sat beside Ivanka Trump and cried as the divided Congress united for the longest ovation of the evening
- Trump refused to back down on immigration saying: 'what would you say to the American family that loses their jobs, their income, or their loved one?'
- Opening sentences of speech robustly condemned anti-Semitic attacks and allegedly racially motivated Kansas City shooting of two Indian men
- Democratic women wore white in reference to fight for suffrage and made thumbs down gestures to speech
