Record 3 million tweets sent on Trump's speech to Congress

However, we have only heard campaign speeches from Donald Trump, he has yet to deliver the kind of meaty policy oriented or even ideological speech that gives Americans and the world an idea as to what kind of country he seeks to create, not just correct.

Trump held out the prospect of achieving a bipartisan compromise on immigration reform, something that has eluded previous USA administrations.

Numerous same sticking points remain that have always plagued immigration reform. And what he's promising to do is very challenging for the Republican Party.

California Senator Kamala Harris, the first Indian-American Senator, said in a tweet that, "To blame all Muslims for terrorists' actions and suggest we block immigrants based on religion is Islamophobia".

Sanders accused Trump of stirring up fear and hatred against immigrants after he only invited the families of those murdered by undocumented immigrants in the US.

"I'm going to have a speech on Tuesday night and we are going to be speaking very specifically about a very complicated subject", Trump told governors Sunday evening.

Trump on Tuesday sent mixed messages to lawmakers on his immigration plans.

Already, the White House seems to have teased the speech with reports that Trump is open to immigration reform - including a pathway to legal status - despite the rhetoric of his campaign.

Democrats said Wednesday that Trump's supposed olive branch was nothing of the sort.

"It wasn't one of his crazier speeches", Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. If this is how low the standards for political communication have dropped in the USA after only five weeks in office, one can only wonder how far down things may go once he is fully comfortable in power.

In recent weeks, Trump has expressed openness to revisiting past immigration reform efforts, including the failed 2013 "Gang of Eight" bill, which drew opposition from Republicans.

"Immigrants aren't saints", she said. A number of initiatives that Trump mentioned in his speech - paid family leave, women's health, and clean air and water - are close to his eldest daughter Ivanka's heart. "One, he's not that bright, and two, not that committed". He gets a star for being most improved and toned down.

"My view is we need to secure the border, which is what".

Republicans moved quickly to hail Trump's speech, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declaring that "Trump did indeed become presidential tonight".

Promises broad overhaul of the USA immigration system in a shift from his hardline campaign rhetoric.

Trump could use the support: Fifty-four percent of Americans disapprove of the president's job performance versus the 42 percent that approve, according to Gallup polling. "You're more apt to have risk going forward...what you really want to be cognizant of right now is you have an incredibly idyllic cocktail of things being incredibly placid", said Siomades.

"There are parts of the border where an actual wall would be incredibly expensive for taxpayers and incredibly expensive to monitor", Portman said.

"Absolutely, I think he did endorse the path that we are taking in the House", echoed North Carolina Rep. Virginia Foxx.
