Former state of the union speechwriter Marc Thiessen said President Donald Trump’s speech to Congress Tuesday evening was one of the best ever.
Thiessen, a political commentator and former speechwriter for former President George W. Bush, said Tuesday that Trump’s speech before a joint session in Congress ranked in the top addresses and constituted a pivot to his more presidential side.
Thiessen, who provided commentary on Twitter throughout the entirety of the speech, did acknowledge that because the speech was Trump’s first since becoming president, it technically did not count as a state of the union address, though it was worth slotting in the same category.
Sorry, I was lead writer on two SOTUs and this was one of the best ever. https://t.co/PZWzotYdYf
