Washington: US President Donald Trump today urged Americans to move beyond the partisan divide between Democrats and Republicans in his first State of the Union address to Congress.
The State of the Union address is a traditional annual speech of the US president to a joint session of the Congress where he gives an account of the situation in the country.
“Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve,” he said.
Trump delivered his traditional State of the Union address amidst boycott by nearly a dozen Democratic lawmakers.
At least a dozen Republican lawmakers had taken a side seat several hours in advance in the House Chambers so that they can shake hands with the President. (PTI)
