the hunger games or something like that. >> reporter: you will not be surprised to hear the republicans for the delegation here and across the country loved the speech tonight. they loved it not just in the substance but also in the style. it was the donald trump that the congressional republicans have wanted to see for a very long time. he was restrained, and he didn't get caught up in the petty personal grievances that have sometimes sidetracked him from the personal issues. you heard that from andy harris, a republican from maryland. >> i heard a lot of objectives i think we can all agree with. we didn't hear much on how to get there or how to do it, which was a lot like the trump campaign where he promised extraordinary things but had no plan to get there. the democrat of maryland, any other sort of spectrum, the democrats see some opportunity

11:21 pm
about what they heard. i guess in general, just your general take on what the president said. he wanted to be optimistic and hopeful. did he achieve that? >> i think he started off with the tone of unity and trying to bring people together. i think it was nice. i was happy he talked about tax reform and regulatory reform. we have not had a very good growth opportunity the last 8 years, 1.6% on average. i was happy to see that we are going to have a progressive environment now. >> reporter: it may be nice to know your name and your political affiliation. >> kevin young and the young county republicans. >> you have been listening to the joint addresses for some time as well following the candidate to this speech. were you affirmed? did you approve of what you heard? >> i think it's probably the best version of
11:22 pm
seen. i'm angela morbito and we see petitioners every day extremely concerned about taxes and immigration, and those two things are deeply connected. trump started to lay out some specifics about relieving the obamacare tax burden, but the details can not be packed into a speech with time constraints so the most important part of the speech is not what happened tonight, but it's what happens tomorrow and the next day and the day after that, and the details that get ironed out. >> i know you're looking to hear more details as well. you're a democrat, were you disappointed in any way by what you heard tonight? >> i was definitely. trump talks about putting america first, and in the entire speech, he only talked about health care and only talked about child care as well as women's care and paid for family leave in the entire speech. that's not putting america first or fighting for families. that's something i was disappointed. i did like that for the firs

time in his presidency, we finally saw president trump in his tone and how he addressed the joint session. >> tell me your name again? >> sanjie martinez. howard university. >> the youngest among us here. tell us your name and political affiliation and really quickly your take on what you heard tonight. >> my name is ryan wincheck. i'm a proud democrat. overall i was very relieved i guess to say that he sort of changed his tone in this speech. it was like a completely different person that being said, i think his speech was a lot of empty promises. he opened the speech trying to reject racism and hate and throughout his campaign and presidency he failed to reject those things previously. i think it's a lot of empty promises. >> all right a lot
11:24 pm
