WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says "unity" will be the theme of his State of the Union address next week, and says he respects Stacey Abrams, who will give the Democratic response.Trump told reporters Thursday that he's familiar with Abrams from the 2018 Georgia governor's race, which she narrowly lost to Republican Brian Kemp.Trump said, "I hope she does a good job. I respect her." Trump said his speech next Tuesday will be sweeping "but part of it's going to be unity."Abrams will be the first black woman to deliver a Democratic response.

Following the death of George H.W. Bush, his twin granddaughters Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Bush said they are finding comfort in their grief by hearing from numerous strangers who shared stories about meeting the former president."I'm shocked by how many people have some memory of meeting him somewhere, and how they found him funny or how loving he was or how personable he was," Barbara recalled in an exclusive interview with TODAY. "That's a really wonderful gift to us, is that we get to hear all these other people's stories, people we never otherwise probably would've talked to, and how he touched their lives as well."Their grandfather, the nation's 41st president, died Friday at 94. While his memorial service Wednesday was scheduled in Washington, D.C.'s National Cathedral, his body will be laid to rest a day later at his presidential library in College Station, Texas. He will be buried next to his wife of 73 years, Barbara Bush, who passed away in April.See more related to this … [Read more...] about Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Bush recall final moments with George H.W.

In a starched white dress shirt with a fake-but-official-looking shoulder patch and badge — a policy violation for which he later was reprimanded — Steele thanked an energized crowd at the Bexar County Democratic Party’s cramped headquarters for supporting the union’s three proposed city charter amendments on the Nov. 6 ballot. Steele targeted his nemesis, City Manager Sheryl Sculley, railing against “powers that be who try to keep the people from voting, from having a voice,” such as “a city manager who makes more than the president and governor combined.” “Shame, shame,” yelled the East Side activists and retired firefighters standing behind him. Sculley, who makes $475,000 a year, once accused Steele of declaring he would lie to win his union’s battles … [Read more...] about S.A. union leader, for all his impact, remains an enigma
