Immigration, Guantanamo … What Trump said in his State of the Union address

Donald Trump landed as a rallying president on Tuesday, calling on Democrats and Republicans to work together, without giving up his hard line on immigration or building a wall on the Mexican border. Before this state of the union speech, the first pronounced by Donald Trump since taking office, some Democrats had hoped that the president will loose ballot on the immigration file, in vain.

" Tonight, I appeal to everyone to set aside our differences to find common ground and achieve the unity we owe to the people who elected us to be served. " the American president. "It's a new American era – there's never been a better time to start living the American dream," he said.

Determined to retain the support of the most conservative Americans, Donald Trump has not deviated from its course, be it the construction of the wall or the tightening of immigration legislation. However, his relatively sober and measured tone has been praised by the public. According to a CNN / SSRS survey conducted after the retransmission of the speech, 48% of respondents considered the speech "very positive" and 22% "rather positive".

If it launched calls in favor of a rapprochement between Democrats and Republicans, the gap separating the two parties was visible, the second applauding the president while that the former sometimes remained ostensibly motionless. Some Democrats booed these positions on immigration. His plea for unity will undergo a first test with his willingness to reach a compromise on the issue of "dreamers" (young people illegally entered on American soil with their parents).

To try to convince Democrats to agree on immigration, Donald Trump last week proposed a compromise to naturalize 1.8 million young illegal immigrants in exchange for financing $ 25 billion from a wall border with the Mexico and restrictive measures of legal immigration to United States . "Let's unite, put politics aside and do the job," he said.

Republicans and Democrats remain deeply divided over the issue of immigration. Congress officials have until the deadline of February 8 to reach a compromise in this file and agree on budget issues to avoid a second "shutdown". Budget and immigration are two a priori separate topics that have been closely correlated for a few months.

Guantanamo will remain open

Talking about foreign policy, Donald Trump denounced the "evil character" of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and claimed that Pyongyang's nuclear development program could "very soon threaten" US territory. "We are exerting maximum pressure to prevent this from happening," he said. The US president also wanted the United States to modernize and rebuild their military arsenal. Donald Trump has also announced that he has signed the order to keep open the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, a sign that he is not giving up trying to crack down on the measures taken by his predecessor, Barack Obama.

The US president also pleaded for a major investment plan worth $ 1.5 trillion (€ 1.2 trillion) to renovate US infrastructure. He did not fail to recall the excellent performance of equity markets and the continued decline in unemployment. According to him, these two tendencies will be confirmed in favor of the tax reform approved last year by the Republicans.

The impact of "his hand extended" to the Democrats to reach a compromise on immigration remains to demonstrate. "My fellow Democrats can say that he has not moved enough, but we can not deny that he has moved a lot, there are people at the heart of his base who think he has gone too far," said Oklahoma Republican Senator James Lankford

But Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy ruled that Donald Trump's call for unity "sounded hollow" after a year of "divisive actions," Petty insults and shameful incitement to racial discrimination "
