their jobs getting elected. >> i don't think he gets that. >> i'm christine romans, it's wednesday, february 6th, 5:00 a.m. in the east. president trump holding firm for demands for increasing border security in a combative state of the union address that straddled the line between calls for unity and attacks on democrats. the president with nancy pelosi looking over his shoulder opened with an appeal for bipartisanship. >> we just reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise and the common good. >> but the call for harmony didn't carry far. he did not call it a hoax, but the president did make this allusion to the russia probe and the investigation jet to come. >> an economic miracle is taking place in the united states, and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or
ridiculous partisan investigations. if there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation. it just didn't work that way. >> president gave no sign he's interested in compromise on border security with another government shutdown or possibly another national emergency declaration. looming next week, he dug in on what he called the very dangerous border with mexico. >> no issue better illustrates the divide between america's working class and america's political class than illegal
immigration. wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders, while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards. my administration has sent to congress a common sense proposal to end the crisis on the southern border. it includes humanitarian assistance, more law enforcement, drug detection at our ports. closing loopholes that enable child smuggling. and plans for a new physical barrier or wall to secure the vast areas between our ports of entry. >> notably, house speaker nancy pelosi shh'd democrats with the hand who started booing. some politics the president mentioned, were, however, received warmly. >> both parties should be able
to unite for a great rebuilding of america's crumbling infrastructure. lower the cost of health care and prescription drugs and to protect patients with preexisting conditions. to eliminate the hiv epidemic in the united states within ten years. many childhood cancers have not seen new therapies in decades. my budget will ask congress for $500 million over the next ten years to fund this critical life-saving research. >> i am also proud to be the first president to include in my budget a plan for nationwide paid family leave. so that every new parent has the chance to bond with their newborn child. >> and other subjects, namely, late-term abortion, lawmakers'
reactions were very mixed. >> i am asking congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother's womb. >> as we work with our allies to destroy the remnants of isis, it is time to give our brave warriors in syria a warm welcome home. >> there were some noteworthy omissionings frs from the state union, at no point did the president mention gun violence, climate change or supreme court. >> there were some memorable moments when the president touted gains for women, job gains for women in the booming economy. he seemed to be taking credit for the job gains by woman. he got an interesting reaction from congress, many dressed in
white, a tribute to the suffrage decades ago. >> no one has benefited more than from a thriving economy than women who have filled 58% of the newly created jobs last year. [ applause ] you weren't supposed to do that. >> we also have more women serving in congress than at anytime before. >> but most of the women went to the other party, not his party. but he is right on that. >> that was an interesting moment. certainly the optical moment of the night.
the president also paid tribute to judeh sumet, a holocaust survivor who was at the massacre in pittsburgh. he turned 81 and ended up being serenaded. ♪ happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday judeh happy birthday to you ♪ >> happy birthday outside of the capitol. president trump earned positive response from 6 in 10 viewers on the poll. >> the democratic response to the president given by stacey abrams, a rising star in the party, even after losing her bid
for governor of georgia. she blasted the trump administration for the government shutdown. >> making livelihoods of our federal workers a pawn for political gains is a disgrace. the shutdown was a stunt. engineered by the president of the united states. one that defied every tenet of fairness, and abandoned not just our people, but our values. >> all right, abrams said she's disappointed by the president, but does not want him to fail. >> joining us now, princeton university historian and professor, julian zelieler. so happy you're here. this is the halfway mark of his presidency. he's not a new sheriff in town, nancy pelosi over his shoulder. talk about the optics and what we saw. >> the opticing defying the tension for next year.
controlling the house of representatives, democrats are now in power. and the president understands this is going to be a tough year ahead. i think a lot of speech last night was actually trying to shore up support by republicans, not achieve bipartisan unity which he's going to need as he faces off against the speaker. >> the average, the bump is 0.2%. these things rarely, if ever, move the needle. but when he said we can build new bridges, heal new wounds, build coalition, americans have seen this movie before. should we be optimistic that anything is different this time around? >> not even a little bit. those parts of the speech are totally at odds with everything he's done. he's a president who is a divider. he's a partisan. and he won't change at all. even yesterday at a lunch with reporters, he was attacking senator schumer. just look at his twitter feed. he hasn't really diverted from
his basic message. so it's not going to be any big change from the president. we're going to be back to where we are today a few hours from the speech. >> he called schumer, off the record, being a nasty s.o.b. and saying when president trump makes a gaffe, he's dumb. >> and looking at homeland security, infrastructure, it goes on and on and on. this is a president who is rankled by this, i think. >> absolutely. it's funny, in 1974, nixon actually called to an end for the watergate investigations during his state of the union address, so this resonated a little bit with that moment. let's also remember, in the speech, didn't refrain in going really deep into the two hot button issues right now, both the immigration and the wall and
the quote/unquote caravan. and then he added on to this, the debate that's unfolding over abortion. so, that was also a key part of the speech. >> look, i have been saying this for the past couple weeks that virginia bill, and the late-term abortion law in new york is something that has really, really fired up people in his base and republicans and democrats, and some democrats, more conservative religious democrats, i think that could be a real big issue going into 2020. >> i think it could be a little like in 2004 when the bush administration folcused on same-sex marriage legislation, and you'll see, combined with continue on immigration. >> and there's in congress, they have an agreement, no guidance on whether the president will sign that deal or not but he alluded to prescription drugs,
infrastructure, paid family leave, things that could get bipartisanship agreement. will they? >> not only do democrats not trust him to follow through on any of that, but many republicans on the hill aren't even certain what he stands for, what he's going to do. so if that's the atmosphere you created as president, it's then hard to have any breakthroughs. obviously, there's a lot of support for those issues. but that's not the question. it's what does the president do on a daily basis. that's the measure of presidential leadership. >> and other moments to analyze, julian zellizer, thank you so much. >> president claimed president for roeporting economic growth. >> in just over two years we have launched a boom, a boom that has largely been seen before. >> fact-check, the president can claim some credit for
acceleration of economic growth on his watch, but not all of it. yes, the economy grew at a rate last year, fueled in part by the surge in defense spending. by the third quarter, the growth had slowed to 3.4%. the president said this about wages. >> wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades. and growing for blue collar workers who i promise to fight for, they're growing faster than anyone else. >> fact-check, wage growth has picked up since late 2017, especially for those rank and file workers. but not as quickly above 3.5% as it did in the late 1990s and mid2000s. better wage growth. also wages have to do with states and cities. they are raising their minimum wages. their residents voted for that. that has nothing to do with the president and nothing to do with

and bring in cnn's ben wedeman. ben, good morning. >> reporter: yes, good morning, david, it does appear there's a bit of relief in this part of syria where you have kurdish fighters fighting isis, that president trump did not declare victory as he said before. there's still very much an ongoing battle against isis in this part of the country. we were at the front lines yesterday, around the last enclave that isis controls in this part of the country, and what we saw is that they are continuing to fire out of that enclave on to the arab and kurdish forces. there are also 2,000 u.s. troops in this part of the country, agency part of the war against isis. the worry was that if president trump was going to come out and declare victory, that means that the u.s. will very soon pull those troops out. it does appear that there is hesitation within the u.s. military itself for a
precipitous withdrawal. we heard that general joseph votel of the head of the central command saying yesterday in congress that there's still anywhere between 20,000 to 30,000 isis fighters still in the country. and, therefore, yes, an important battle against isis, as a territorial entity is about to come to an end. but the war is far from over. christine. >> all right, ben wedeman, thank you so much for that in northern syria, ben wedeman. hour trouble for elizabeth warren in claims of native-american ancestry. more democrats getting ready to make decisions as well about 2020. yeah, uh...for the team. the team? gooo team... order online pickup in an hour. and, now save big at the buy 2 get 1 free event. at office depot officemax.

home. >> at no point did the president mention guns, climate change or the supreme court among other topics. >> there were several memorable moments in last night's address. one came when president trump touted economic numbers for women, job gains. got an interesting response from women in congress, many dressed in white a tribute to the suffrage movement of a century ago. >> no one has benefited more from our thriving economy than women who have filled 58% of the newly created jobs last year. [ applause ] >> you weren't supposed to do that. >> we also have more women
serving in congress than at anytime before. >> so, that was the president saying thank you, and nancy pelosi saying, no, thank you. because 106 of the 127 women, 83%, they are democrats, many of them because of president trump's policies. that's why they were applauding and high-fiving. outside the capitol, president trump earned a positive response in 6 in 10 viewers in an cnn instant poll, the president skewed largely republican. >> giving the speech, stacey abrams, she lost in georgia, she blasted the trump administration for the government shutdown. >> making livelihoods of our federal workers a pawn for
political gain is a disgray. the shutdown was a stunt, engineered by the president of the united states, one that defied every tenet of fairness, and abandoned not just our people, but our values. >> but she did say she does not want the president to fail. joining us now, historian, julian zelizer. >> good morning. >> you go back to 1975 and saying the state of the union was not good. was the speech good and what do we make of teleprompter trump? >> back then, i think president ford talking about the country, but president trump was not. there's a big disconnect between that part of the speech last night, calling for bipartisanship and what his administration is about. >> the and the america's biggest newspapers saying, "washington post" same old polarizie ining
demagoguery. and ntsz it's in, real national crisis. he did not mention shutdown, climate change or guns or education or brett kavanaugh. or many of these things that have animated the american electorate in recent months. >> that's exactly right. if he really wanted to do something bold in terms of making a statement that he's going out of his partisan box, dealing with something like climate change or gun control that would be a big move. but that's really not on the table. the last thing he wants to do last night is anger republicans because he needs them. and he remembers the person sitting behind him last night, speaker pelosi, has a close eye on this president. >> she optically was fascinating all night. shuffling through her copy of the speech. or that trolling laugh to the
face of president trump. he said if there's going to be peace there cannot be war and investigation. is that the nixon speech that one year of watergate is enough and can we have investigation and legislation simultaneously? >> sure, president trump always saying you need to stop the investigations or we can't govern. that's convenient because you don't want the investigations to go on. not actually true. congress can do many things at once. it can investigate, can it legislate. even president clinton in the 1980s was doing a lot as the impeachment stuff was going on. >> sure. >> that's just a defensive claim by the president. >> paid family leave, infrastructure, drug pricing, childhood cancer, hiv/aids, there are things that democrats and republicans that can agree on. he also mentioned preexisting conditions, wanting to protect america's health care and preexisting conditions, which is interesting and they've had a lot of chance to do that but done the opposite, haven't they.
>> yeah, you have to take that part with a grain of salt because the administration and gop has moved against the obamacare program that protected that. so, there's no evidence that the gop would do anything to protect americans. on aids, though, there is a bipartisan precedent. george w. bush was very aggressive in fighting against aids overseas. one of the biggest initiatives in history. there is room there to move forward there with democrats in support. >> among the discussion, what did he mean when immigrants could come in the largest numbers ever. nobody has any idea what policy matches that rhetoric. >> that was unscripted, right? >> it appeared to be. we didn't look at the prompter, but does the debate on the wall ultimately divide us on what's coming forward? does that tell us what's to come? >> absolutely. now, we're looking at another government shutdown. the issue is immigration. the issue is the wall.
and with tull of tall of the fl of bipartisanship and the center of that speech was immigration and the wall which is the issue that within the next few weeks he'll be battling on. so there's no indication on the key question that he's backing away. >> julian zelizer, thank you. >> thank you. the president taking credit for a jobs boom. >> we have created 5.3 million new jobs and importantly, added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs, something which almost everyone said was impossible to do. but the fact is, we are just getting started. >> fact-check, the economy has added 4.87 million jobs since president trump took office. the president's quote of 5.3 million jobs includes jobs created before his inauguration. and context here, jobs have been added now for 100 straight months.
take a look at this chart. last year, 2.6 million jobs created. but you can see there were times during the obama administration where jobs were created more briskly than they are today. the president overstated the number of manufacturing jobs created during his presidency. according to the bureau of labor statistics about 454,000 were added since 2017. still, there's no question that manufacturing jobs has improved over the last two years. the reason there, a number of factors including falling oil prices, job numbers nationwide. had a startling admission from the pope for the first time, he acknowledged that priests have sexually abused nuns. action has been taken. and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call
