'We Are Building a Safe, Strong & Proud America': Trump Delivers SOTU Address

'Legend from Louisiana': Trump Honors 2017's American Heroes at State of the Union


In his State of the Union address, President Donald Trump said his ongoing work to cut regulations and governmental red tape will enhance the American economy.

Trump pointed specifically to the city of Detroit, Michigan, which has seen an increase in urban blight and unemployment.

Trump said previously-enacted regulations "crippled" the American auto industry, hurting the Motor City.

He said he is working to make sure his deregulation plans will "get the Motor City revving its engines again."

"And, that's what's happening," he said, pointing to a Mexican Chrysler plant relocating back to Michigan.

He said foreign automakers Toyota and Mazda will be opening plants in Alabama.

"We haven't seen this in a long time," he said.

Trump also said he "ended the war on American energy, and ended the war on beautiful clean coal" in places like Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
