President Donald Trump deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of U.S. Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018.

Why all the long faces on the Democrats on Tuesday night? Didn’t they get what they asked for on immigration? A roundup of editorials Thursday takes a look at the fallout of the State of the Union address.

Opinions from the right:

1. Trump ‘Dreamer’ deal puts the squeeze on Democrats

From The Washington Times: Trump offered the left what they have been asking for. Will they take it?

2. A very inclusive speech--no wonder it shook up Dems

From Newt Gingrich: The left should learn to take a win with a smile on their faces.

3. Can Trump sustain newfound aura of gravitas?

From columnist Kathleen Parker: It seemed Democrats were a little unnerved at how inclusive Trump’s speech was.

The left asks why Trump is comfortable using Dreamers as political footballs.
