7 standout lines from Trump's 2018 State of the Union speech

Here are seven lines that stood out from President Donald Trump's speech

Here are seven lines that stood out.

1. Over the last year, the world has seen what we always knew: that no people on Earth are so fearless, or daring, or determined as Americans. If there is a mountain, we climb it. If there is a frontier, we cross it. If there is a challenge, we tame it. If there is an opportunity, we seize it.

2. We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag.

The president continued his call for unity to focus on the country's economic future, mentioning the recent tax bill and telling people watching at home that it is a good time for the "American Dream."

4. Americans love their country. And they deserve a Government that shows them the same love and loyalty in return.

The president said Preston's story was a good example of civic duty, going on to say that the administration has worked to restore trust in government over the last year.

5. So tonight, I call on the Congress to empower every Cabinet Secretary with the authority to reward good workers — and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people.

Trump made this comment after discussing reforms to the Department of Veterans Affairs, saying that 1,500 VA employees who "failed to give our veterans the care they deserve" have been removed from their jobs.

6. Americans are dreamers too.

7. Most importantly, these four pillars will produce legislation that fulfills my ironclad pledge to only sign a bill that puts America first. So let us come together, set politics aside, and finally get the job done.

Trump laid out the four pillars of his immigration plan that he says represent a compromise between Republicans and Democrats. The proposal includes a path to citizenship for DACA recipients, funding for the border wall, ending the visa lottery system and ending chain or family immigration policies.
