Dr. Charles Kesler on Trump’s joint address to Congress on KPCC’s AirTalk - 3/1/17

March 6, 2017

President Trump's address before Congress conveyed a very different tone than his inaugural or campaign speeches.

Instead of focusing on what he sees as the country's disastrous condition, he touted improvements he says are coming. Now the question is whether Congress will agree with his plans. Right now, both sides are meeting on healthcare reform.
