The State of the Union address didn’t impress many on the left, who saw a president miss an opportunity to unite the country. A roundup of editorials Wednesday takes a look at what President Donald Trump missed in the speech..
Opinions from the left:
From Bloomberg: Trump didn’t take the opportunity to change his playbook. He should have.
I realized listening to Trump read his State of the Union, I don’t trust one word that man utters. I was unmoved by all of it. Meaningless. Like listening to him read from my car’s owner’s manual telling me how to operate the sound system. Made me sleepy.— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) January 31, 2018
From columnist Ezra Klein: Trump has not grown in his role, and that is a shame.
From the Minneapolis Star Tribune: His ability to govern, not Tuesday's speech, will define his presidency.
