President Donald Trump urged Americans to "choose greatness" in his State of the Union address.

Trump finished his 82-minute speech on an optimistic note, suggesting that "our biggest victories are still to come" and that "we have not yet begun to dream." And he urged the nation to not be "defined by our differences."

Much of his speech echoed his usual partisan talking points and the reaction to his address varied wildly among Democrats and Republicans.
Georgia democrat Stacey Abrams deliver her party's response to president Donald Trump's state of the union address.

She argued for a more unified society that gives every American a chance at prosperity. Abrams' speech comes months after she narrowly lost her bid to become America’s first black female governor.

National democrats are now trying to persuade her to run for the senate in 2020.
Congressman Anthony Brindisi (NY-22) released this statement following the president’s address:
"tonight, the president highlighted some areas where i hope we can find common ground. Working together is the only way we can create good-paying jobs, lower the cost of prescription drugs, fix our crumbling infrastructure, and take care of our veterans. I will be the first one at the table, ready and willing, to work with anyone serious about getting things done."

Brindisi brought a veteran from the 22nd district to the address as his guest.
