Nancy Pelosi "wanted to have her moment" at the State of the Union address
Sky News host Rita Panahi says Donald Trump’s State of the Union address was “a speech that celebrated great Americans” and “when you tear that up, you are tearing up that success”.
Ms Panahi addressed Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s tearing of the US president’s speech at the close of his address, saying it was a “pre-planned stunt” and Pelosi “wanted to have her moment”.
Mr Trump’s address made mention of numerous successes under his administration including the record-low unemployment rate and his foreign policy with China.
Sky News host James Morrow said the State of the Union address was a “great rebuke to the foreign policy establishment” and that some US businesses revealed they “can’t support Trump publicly” but praised him for his relationship with China.
