Trump’s Speech to Congress script
Synopsis: President Trump on Feb. 28, 2017 delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress. The following is a transcript, as prepared by the Federal News Service.

Above all else, we will keep our promises to the American people.

(APPLAUSE)

Thank you. It’s been a little over a month since my inauguration, and I want to take this moment to update the nation on the progress I’ve made in keeping those promises. Since my election, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, Softbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart and many others have announced that they will invest billions and billions of dollars in the United States and will create tens of thousands of new American jobs.

(APPLAUSE)

The stock market has gained almost $3 trillion in value since the election on Nov. 8, a record. We’ve saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars by bringing down the price of fantastic — and it is a fantastic — new F-35 jet fighter, and we’ll be saving billions more on contracts all across our government.

We have placed a hiring freeze on nonmilitary and nonessential federal workers.

We have begun to drain the swamp of government corruption by imposing a five-year ban on lobbying by executive branch officials — and a lifetime ban ...

(APPLAUSE)

Thank you. Thank you. And a lifetime ban on becoming lobbyists for a foreign government. We have undertaken a historic effort to massively reduce job-crushing regulations, creating a deregulation task force inside of every government agency ...

(APPLAUSE)

... and we’re imposing a new rule which mandates that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated.

(APPLAUSE)

We’re going to stop the regulations that threaten the future and livelihood of our great coal miners. [Fact check: This is partly true but misleading.]
