>> Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground.>> After a tumultuous first year, President Donald Trump unfurls a message of unity, asking Republicans and Democrats to come together to overhaul immigration, rebuild America's roads, and rally to the nation's defense.
>> This in fact, is our new American moment.>> I'm Andy Sullivan in Washington, where Trump used his annual speech in Congress to paint a bright picture of his first year in office. Pointing to tax cuts and a booming economy. He also outlined what he hopes to do next.
It was an optimistic, and measured speech, from a president not necessarily known for those things. But he still managed to step on a few toes along the way.>> A down-the-middle compromise.>> Trump said he was extending an open hand to Democrats for an immigration deal that he said would provide young illegal immigrants, known as Dreamers, a path to citizenship over 10 or 12 years.
>> Almost three times more people than the previous administration covered.>> But Trump said that in exchange, he wants funding for his signature border wall with Mexico, and restrictions on legal immigration. Neither acceptable to most Democrats. And even as he called for unity, some of his statements clearly riled Democrats in the chamber, with boos audible, when he talked about ending a program that allows people to sponsor relatives from overseas.
So-called, chain migration.>> Under our plan, we focus on the immediate family by limiting sponsorships to spouses and minor children.>> Trump called on Congress to pass an infrastructure bill that would generate at least $1.5 trillion to build or fix roads and bridges.>> I'm asking both parties to come together.
>> And on national security, Trump asked for Democrats to support him in ending the spending caps that he says makes it harder to take on global threats, getting in a dig at North Korean leadership, whom he called quote, depraved.>> I will not repeat the mistakes of past administrations that got us into this very dangerous position.
>> His speech was not only about laying out an agenda, but also overcoming doubts about his White House, at a time when he faces an intense probe into his campaign's ties to Russia.>> And God bless America.>> Tuesday night was teleprompter Trump, relatively disciplined and on message.
But after big moments like this, Americans have grown used to seeing Twitter Trump resurfacing before too long. The more unfiltered version of the man we saw in the House chamber. Now as Trump travels the country to sell his ideas, the question is, will he be able to stick to the script?
>> Thank you hon, thank you. Thank you, fellas.
