President Trump addresses the Joint Congress for the first timeHeralding a “new chapter of American greatness,” President Donald Trump stood before Congress for the first time Tuesday night and issued a broad call for overhauling the nation’s health care system, significantly boosting military spending and plunging $ 1 trillion into upgrading crumbling infrastructure. Trump, who typically relishes flouting political convention, embraced the pomp and tradition of a presidential address to Congress. The president was greeted by enthusiastic applause as he entered the House chamber, though it was filled with Democrats who vigorously oppose his policies and many Republicans who never expected him to be elected.
