Congressman Joseph Kennedy III (D-Mass.) delivered the official Democratic response to President Trump's State of the Union address.

Speaking from a school in Fall River, near the Rhode Island line, Kennedy said Trump allowed Russia to become "knee-deep in our democracy" and is discriminating against immigrants.

Kennedy, the grandson of Robert Kennedy and grand-nephew of President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), said Trump "callously appraises our worthiness and decides who makes the cut and who can be bargained away."

Kennedy dabbled in Spanish during his speech, addressing DREAMers by saying what translated to "you are a part of our story. We will fight for you. We will not walk away."

He said Trump allowed "hatred and supremacy" to march in American streets, and is discriminating against people based on the country of their birth.

Kennedy nodded to the Black Lives Matter movement, and said Trump is turning America into a "zero-sum game."
