President Trump made “We” the focal point of his first State of the Union Address and for those of you who took the time to look past partisan politics and tune in for the event, WE have a lot to be thankful for.
President Trump highlighted big wins in tax reform, manufacturing, immigration, foreign relations, auto manufacturing and coal production during the first year of his first term in the Oval Office.
Guests included the parents of Otto Warmbier, who tragically lost their son Otto this year to the rogue regime that is North Korea and Kim Jong Un, who allegedly beat Otto within an inch of his life after he was caught stealing in North Korea while studying abroad. He died shortly after President Trump returned him to his family after President Obama failed for years to free the student.
Also in attendance was, Ji Seong-Ho, a North Korean dissident, who was also beaten and tortured by North Korea. Ji Seong-Ho held up his crutches in triumph during the State of the Union address Tuesday when the young man was recognized by President Donald Trump for his courage and strength.
Ji Seong-ho is a North Korean defector who lives in South Korea, where he works to raise awareness about the situation in North Korea and to help fellow defectors. He was badly injured by a train but managed to escape North Korea. He lost a number of his family members to torture, starvation and famine in North Korea. He currently resides in South Korea and is working to help raise awareness to the current situation in North Korea.
