President Trump delivered one of the most memorable State of the Union addresses in American history Tuesday night.
There were a lot of proud moments and a lot of surprises as well.
Rush Limbaugh received the Medal of Freedom, a scholarship for school choice was awarded to a young girl, a soldier came home to reunite with his family, a 100-year-old Tuskeegee airman was honored, and so much more. Likewise, the Democrats disgracefully refused to celebrate anything that everyone else applauded.
But one of the best surprises happened when Nancy Pelosi realized that President Trump started calling her out passively by how California allowed an innocent man to be killed.
Watch the reaction on Pelosi’s face when he starts talking about her state:

Here is the transcript of what President Trump said about the law in California:
“The State of California passed an outrageous law declaring their whole State to be a sanctuary for criminal illegal immigrants — with catastrophic results.
Here is just one tragic example. In December 2018, California police detained an illegal alien with five prior arrests, including convictions for robbery and assault. But as required by California’s Sanctuary Law, local authorities released him.
Days later, the criminal alien went on a gruesome spree of deadly violence. He viciously shot one man going about his daily work; he approached a woman sitting in her car and shot her in the arm and the chest. He walked into a convenience store and wildly fired his weapon. He hijacked a truck and smashed into vehicles, critically injuring innocent victims. One of the victims of his bloody rampage was a 51-year-old American named Rocky Jones. Rocky was at a gas station when this vile criminal fired eight bullets at him from close range, murdering him in cold blood.
Rocky left behind a devoted family, including his brothers who loved him more than anything. One of his grieving brothers is here with us tonight. Jody, would you please stand? Jody, our hearts weep for your loss — and we will not rest until you have justice.
Senator Thom Tillis has introduced legislation to allow Americans like Jody to sue Sanctuary Cities and States when a loved one is hurt or killed as a result of these deadly policies. I ask the Congress to pass the Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act immediately. The United States of America should be a sanctuary for law-abiding Americans — not criminal aliens!”
In the last 3 years, ICE has arrested over 5,000 wicked human traffickers — and I have signed 9 pieces of legislation to stamp out the menace of human trafficking, domestically and around the globe.
My Administration has undertaken an unprecedented effort to secure the southern border of the United States…
