Members of Congress cheer after President Donald Trump acknowledges more women in Congress during his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019. That's the third-longest ever.
Each of the last four presidents have lost the House at some point during their presidency.
Not Trump. Instead, he barreled ahead with pitching his agenda. Those were juxtaposed with fear-driven talking points of illegal immigration, partisan investigations and worldwide war. "If there is going to be peace and legislation, there can not be war and investigation".
The president did mention rollbacks of environmental regulation in his 82-minute speech, the longest State of the Union in almost two decades. He argued in favor of a wall: "Simply put, walls work, and walls save lives". His speech sought to shore up Republican support that had eroded slightly during the recent government shutdown and previewed a fresh defense against Democrats as they ready a round of investigations into every aspect of his administration.

He also called out Iran for threats against Israel.
"If I had not been elected president of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea", he said. "We are born free, and we will stay free", Trump said. "We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America's future".
"We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction", Trump said early on in his address. "It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way down", he said.
"I believe the time has come to bring that investigation and the other investigations of this matter to an end", Nixon said. Many House Democratic women wore white, the color favored by early 20th-century suffragettes. "One year of Watergate is enough".
Democrats took over control of the House in January after winning more seats in the 2018 midterm elections.
