Week 6: Harnessing The American Spirit
Each American generation passes the torch of truth, liberty and justice in an unbroken chain all the way down to the present.
President Trump wants to work with members in both parties to make childcare accessible and affordable, obtain paid family leave for new parents, invest in women’s health, promote clean air and clear water, and rebuild our military and infrastructure.
The challenges we face as a nation are great, but our people are even greater. Take a look at the President’s big week below highlighted by an acclaimed speech to a joint session of Congress.
Turning Hopes And Dreams Into Action
President Trump addressed Republicans and Democrats in Congress on Tuesday with a clear message: the time for small thinking is over and the time for trivial fights is behind us; all we need is the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts.

He asked Secretary Price to work with these companies to stabilize the insurance markets and to ensure a smooth transition to the new plan.
