President Donald Trump was bathed with praise from the same media outlets he regularly criticizes after his Tuesday night address to a joint session of Congress.
Pundits and journalists lauded Trump’s more traditional, optimistic tone in contrast to his blustery style on the campaign trail, all while he outlined an ambitious and wide-reaching agenda for the country.
Figures across the dial, from Fox News host Chris Wallace to MSNBC’s Mark Halperin to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, called it the best speech of Trump’s political career, with Wallace adding it was one of the best he’d ever seen given in that setting.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer intoned it was an “important, powerful speech,” and CBS host Gayle King said it was “healing” and an example of Trump speaking from his heart. Face The Nation host John Dickerson noted Trump used “all the rhetorical and symbolic tools at his disposal.”
