On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump delivered his second State of the Union speech.

The stem-winder focused primarily on immigration and danced around issues of the economy and jobs.

The president also said he expects Congress to send him a budget bill in ten days that includes funding for his proposed border wall.

Stephen Henderson speaks with two members of Michigan’s congressional delegation and a former Republican official about the speech on Detroit Today.

Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Holly) represents Michigan’s 8th Congressional District.

Rep. Andy Levin (D-Bloomfield Twp.) represents Michigan’s 9th Congressional District.

Randy Richardville is the former state Senate Majority Leader and former 7th Congressional District Chair for Trump’s 2016 campaign.
