Trump Makes Last Appeal for Wall Funding in State of Union Address

Ivanka Trump (C-R) and husband Jared Kushner (C-L) along with special guests of the President are seen ahead of President Donald Trump's State of the Union address at the Capitol in Washington, D.C., on February 5, 2019. Trump backed down and accepted a measure reopening the government for three weeks, but negotiations in the interim have made no more progress toward winning money for his wall - and the government could close again on February 15. They sat with Mrs. Trump during the address. Early advocates for women's voting rights wore white as a symbol of purity, often alongside purple for dignity and green for hope.

During an off-the-record lunch for television anchors on Tuesday before the speech, Trump offered scathing assessments of a number of leading Democrats, including some lining up to run against him next year. Well, everyone except some Democrats that is including numerous female House Democratic representatives that were all dressed in white, Sens.

In the chamber, there has always been a growing gender divide as Democrats elect far more women than Republicans.

Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams delivered the Democratic Party's response, with an impassioned speech that held Trump to account for his attacks of minority communities, and looked forward to a return to ideals around which the country can truly unite.

Trump recounted that a century after the Congress passed the Constitutional amendment "giving women the right to vote, we also have more women serving in the Congress than ever before".

In sharp contrast to the president's appeal, Democrats have so far tried to embrace a message of unity and diversity with few direct appeals to the white working-class voters who abandoned Democrats in 2016.

"There could be no greater contrast to the attractive image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days", President Trump said. Her brother Donald Trump Jr. posted a picture of the first children and their respective significant others, writing they were getting ready to watch their father "at the big show".

On Jan. 3, Trump came to the White House briefing room flanked by Border Patrol union officials to push for his wall and border funding. (AP) Congresswomen, dressed in white in tribute to the women's suffrage movement, pose for a photo as they arrive for the State of the Union address.

White has continued to serve as symbol for women in politics.
