President Biden's optimism was shown in his first State of the Union Address

On Tuesday, President Joe Biden addressed the nation with the State of the Union Address. He opened up the address with prayers and thoughts for the people in Ukraine and spoke about the consequences that Russia will face. The president's tone was very stern with the attacks that took place and repeatedly stated that he stands with his European allies.and together they will end President Putin's terror.

Outside of the issues with Russia, President Biden went into how the pandemic changed the economy , but was optimistic that America will increase economically. "Our economy grew at a rate of 5.7% last year, the strongest growth in nearly 40 years, the first step in bringing fundamental change to an economy that hasn’t worked for the working people of this nation for too long. "For the past 40 years we were told that if we gave tax breaks to those at the very top, the benefits would trickle down to everyone else., but that trickle-down theory led to weaker economic growth, lower wages, bigger deficits, and the widest gap between those at the top and everyone else in nearly a century."

"I’m announcing that the Justice Department will name a chief prosecutor for pandemic fraud.

By the end of this year, the deficit will be down to less than half what it was before I took office. The only president ever to cut the deficit by more than one trillion dollars in a single year."

President Biden talked about health care, lowering the cost of electric cars, and establishing an improved method with making Americans much easier. Each of these topics, President Biden was spot on with his solutions and brought an applause each time he hit a point.Throughout his speech, the tone was hope, optimism, and straight-forward with improving this country.
