Trump- Kennedy With Different Views Of World

President Trump will keep detention  facilities at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba open.  

In his first State of the  Union address, The President claimed that terrorists are not "merely  criminals," but rather "enemy combatants" who should be detained at the  military facility.  

He noted the coalition to defeat ISIS has seen great  success in Iraq and Syria, claiming the coalition had liberated "almost  one-hundred percent" of the territory once held by ISIS fighters in  both nations.  

Yet, he said there was still much work to be done and  pledged to fight the terrorist network until it was totally defeated.

 President Trump also outlined plans for  immigration reform.  In his State of the Union Address, Trump said the  first pillar is a path for citizenship for people who were brought to  the United States at a young age. 

 The second pillar involves border security,  including a wall along the southern border and more border patrol  agents.  

The third pillar is getting rid of the "visa lottery" program  and replacing it with a merit-based immigration system.  

The fourth  pillar is ending so-called chain migration.>>Kennedy: Democrats Have A "Better Deal" For Americans

Meantime,  Democratic Congressman Joe Kennedy is urging Americans to remain strong in the Democratic response to President Trump's State of the Union address. 

Kennedy, on behalf of his party, assessed the state of the union to be "hopeful, resilient and enduring."  

Kennedy says Democrats have a "better deal" for Americans than their Republican counterparts.  

Kennedy  said that deal includes a living wage, affordable child care, "trade  pacts that are fair," a health care system that offers "mercy," and  roads and bridges that "won't rust away."
