Some Republicans have called President Donald Trump's address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night his best speech yet.

So naturally, a litany of Democrats have been the first to criticize the president.

Former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear offered the Democratic Party's rebuttal to Trump's speech.

Below are some snippets from his rebuttal:

"In 2010, this country made a committment that every American deserved health care they could afford and rely on." 

"We Democrats are going to do everything in our power to keep President Trump and the Republican Congress from reneging on that committment."

"President Trump has all but declared war on refugees and immigrants."

"Real leaders don't spread derision and division. Real leaders strengthen. They unify."

Other top Democrats were quick to offer their opinions following Trump's speech.

Former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) posted his response in a Facebook video.



Speaking to MSNBC, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said there's a "discontinuity" to what Trump is saying and to what he is actually doing.

In a statement, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Trump's speech was "utterly disconnected from the cruel reality of his conduct."

Also speaking to MSNBC, new Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said Trump was speaking like "Steve Bannon on steroids with a smile."
