Charles Krauthammer praised President Donald Trump's address to a joint session of Congress, calling it the best speech he has heard from Trump. 

He argued that a version of this address could have helped launch his presidency more effectively and may have calmed some of the "hysteria" that followed the inauguration.

"This should have been his inaugural address. ... This was a version of Trumpism, but done in a sober way," said Krauthammer.

He compared that to the "dark" inaugural address in which Trump talked about "carnage" and ended up scaring people with his rhetoric.

Krauthammer said Trump presented a vision for America, telling the country what he wants to do and why in a straightforward fashion.

"If this is the presidency of Trump, I think he will succeed. If this is an aberration, just a performance, he will not," he added, advising Trump to stop attacking his opponents and the media.
