It was optimistic, it was bright, it was conciliatory. In terms of its substance, I don't know, when you look at some of the specifics on immigration, for example. I mean, he definitely led with the issues that come up with regard to crime, MS-13, it was heavy on that, he didn't get to the Dreamers until the end. But I mean the State of The Union, in terms of what he had to do, I think he did it. He set a tone and he was positive and he trumpeted the economy, and I think that's exactly what he wanted to do.” (NBC News’ “Live,” 1/30/18)
