President Donald Trump gave his first State of the Union address on Tuesday. The speech came just a little over a year into his presidency. Watch the video below.

Speaking from the Capitol, Trump began by saying, “Less than 1 year has passed since I first stood at this podium, in this majestic chamber, to speak on behalf of the American People, and to address their concerns, their hopes, and their dreams. That night, our new Administration had already taken swift action. A new tide of optimism was already sweeping across our land. Each day since, we have gone forward with a clear vision and a righteous mission: To make America great again for all Americans.”

The president said, “Over the last year, we have made incredible progress and achieved extraordinary success. We have faced challenges we expected, and others we could never have imagined. We have shared in the heights of victory and the pains of hardship. We endured floods and fires and storms. But through it all, we have seen the beauty of America’s soul, and the steel in America’s spine.”

He went on to tout various accomplishments, such as changes to healthcare and tax laws. He also spoke about unemployment rates and job statistics. “This is our new American moment. There has never been a better time to start living the American Dream,” Trump said, adding, “Together, we are rediscovering the American way.” He expressed support for the military, as well as for Second Amendment rights, and addressed the National Anthem controversy. He also promised “immigration policies that focus on the best interests of American workers and American families.”

Trump said, “I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties, Democrats and Republicans, to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion, and creed. My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream. Because Americans are dreamers too.”

As for foreign affairs, the president offered, “As we strengthen friendships around the world, we are also restoring clarity about our adversaries.” He eventually concluded, “As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve. As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will not fail. Our families will thrive. Our people will prosper. And our nation will forever be safe and strong and proud and mighty and free. “Thank you, and God bless America.
