Pelosi says Trump ‘threats’ have no place in Congress

Pelosi says Trump ‘threats’ have no place in Congress

Trump said during the speech that "we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country" as Tlaib and the far-left flank of the Democratic Party are ascendant.

Another Democratic star, Stacey Abrams, delivered the party's response to Trump.

Trump devoted much of his speech to foreign policy, another area where Republicans have increasingly distanced themselves from the White House. Pelosi wore a white pant suit with red and blue accessories.

Female lawmakers dressed in white, in observation of the 100th anniversary of Congress voting to grant women the right to vote, watch as Trump delivers the State of the Union address.

- The 2019 State of the Union was held a week later than originally scheduled and, for the first time under President Donald Trump, it was in front of a divided Congress.

The CNN poll showed that 87 percent of Republicans and 57 percent of independents said it was very positive, but 64 percent of Democrats said it was very or somewhat negative.

It's far from clear, however, whether the approach will do enough to fix his strained relationship with women, who left the GOP in droves last fall in a suburban revolt that gave Democrats the House majority. But also sheath power dresses.

Rep. Rosa de Lauro (D-Conn.) said women in Congress have been able to work across the aisle on numerous occasions, and "work collaboratively on issues that not only affect our state but affect our families in this country". Hats for some, removed once inside. But here, he was applauding Democratic women, who are the reason for that new record.

On this night, the simplicity of white offered a reminder that fashion is often political. At other times she read along with the president's remarks, holding up her print out of his speech in view behind him as he spoke on the dais before her.

Among them was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who also wore white last month when the 29-year-old was sworn into office, now a prominent member of the freshmen class.

He said, "The only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations" an apparent swipe at the special counsel investigation into ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as the upcoming congressional investigations. "From making it harder to register and stay on the rolls to moving and closing polling places to rejecting lawful ballots, we can no longer ignore these threats to democracy", she said. The group, perhaps more than any other, fueled his razor-thin victory in 2016.

White has continued to serve as symbol for women in politics.

A few of the Democrats' male colleagues joined them in white.
