Monday Starts an Excellent Week for President Donald Trump

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Tomorrow night, February 4th, 2020,  President Donald Trump delivers his third State of the Union Address.

Not to mention a new North American trade agreement just as candidate Trump promised, China desperate to end the trade war and America’s NATO allies paying much more of their fair share for collective defense.”
