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.

(APPLAUSE)

We have cleared the way for the construction of the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines ...

(APPLAUSE)

... thereby creating tens of thousands of jobs. [Fact check: This needs context.] And I’ve issued a new directive that new American pipelines be made with American steel.

(APPLAUSE)

We have withdrawn the United States from the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership.

(APPLAUSE)

And with the help of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, we have formed a council with our neighbors in Canada to help ensure that women entrepreneurs have access to the networks, markets and capital they need to start a business and live out their financial dreams.

(APPLAUSE)

To protect our citizens, I have directed the Department of Justice to form a task force on reducing violent crime. I have further ordered the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice, along with the Department of State and the director of national intelligence, to coordinate an aggressive strategy to dismantle the criminal cartels that have spread all across our nation. [Fact check: True, but they don’t do much.]

(APPLAUSE)

We will stop the drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth, and we will expand treatment for those who have become so badly addicted.

(APPLAUSE)

At the same time, my administration has answered the pleas of the American people for immigration enforcement and border security.

(APPLAUSE)

By finally enforcing our immigration laws, we will raise wages [Fact check: Maybe a little.], help the unemployed, save billions and billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone.

(APPLAUSE)

We want all Americans to succeed, but that can’t happen in an environment of lawless chaos.
