in reality, the American Dream to me is just living in America itself, blessed by the freedom, rights, and opportunity this country provides. 4. What topics did President Trump steer away from? Why do you think this was the case? He steered away from topics such as the government shutdown, which might connect with why he also didn’t mention the Dreamers or DACA as they were a big part of the government shutdown, and these topics may force the president to show his stance on these topics and even though most Americans know his stance on DACA, he probably didn’t talk about it because it would stir up too much controversy. 5. Why did some Democrats boo the President when he discussed “chain” or family-based migration? Do you agree with this action? Why or why not? They booed this because Democrats disagree with Trump’s views on immigration in general, and according to some immigration policy experts, the way Trump said these policies work might not be completely accurate. I don’t necessarily agree or disagree with the booing, as it is normal for

democrats to disagree with republicans to the point of booing and vice versa. 6. What did Rep. Kennedy mean when he said, “And this nagging, sinking feeling, no matter your political beliefs, that this is not right. This is not who we are.”? What he meant was that everything Trump talked about does not embody our actual current state of Union, and there were many things still left unaddressed. He’s saying that Trump is not taking us in the right direction.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
