Trump hails the ‘great American comeback’

Donald Trump has hailed the “great American comeback” during his State Of The Union address.

The US president said to members of Congress: “In just three short years, we have shattered the mentality of American decline and we have rejected the downsizing of America’s destiny.

“We are moving forward at a pace that was unimaginable just a short time ago, and we are never going back.”

The president’s 80-minute speech came after he became the third in history to be impeached and as his trial is under way in the Senate with the verdict due later on Wednesday.

But he focused on economic progress, putting this forward as the main reason voters should give him a second term in November.
