Dem Gov. Applauds Trump's Speech: 'He Was Reaching Out to People'
A Democratic governor is praising President Trump's first address to Congress, saying he welcomed the president's "different tone" and his promise to work with people with whom he disagrees.
Governor John Hickenlooper (D-Colo.) said on "The O'Reilly Factor" tonight that Trump sounded like he wanted to include all ideological sides when advancing his agenda.
"It looked like he was reaching out to people that he didn't agree with," Hickenlooper said, calling the speech "a welcome tone, in the sense that he seemed to be including people."
Hickenlooper acknowledged that there was not a lot of detail in Trump's policy points.
He said if Trump wants to "honor the complexity of the issues," however, he is ready to have discussions with him.
Bill O'Reilly mentioned Trump's plans to curb illegal immigration, asking whether Hickenlooper will take as hard a line as someone like Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) against Trump's plans to deport illegal immigrant criminals.
Hickenlooper said he does not view Denver as a sanctuary city, in that he is confident officials will turn over criminal illegal immigrants to federal authorities.
"Countries come with borders," Hickenlooper said.
