President Donald Trump will deliver his address to Congress on Monday, outlining his strategy for dealing with the alt right and the alt left.
He will discuss the recent violence and bigotry that has enveloped American society, which he says is fueled by “anti-American sentiment, anti-immigrant sentiment, racist sentiments, xenophobic sentiment, misogyny, anti–Semitism, anti‐Muslim sentiment, sexism, antiblack sentiment, and antiSemitism.”
The address will also be his most extensive address to date on the issue.
While the speech will focus on domestic policy, the president will also address foreign policy, including his plan to end the war in Afghanistan, end the “war on drugs,” and expand immigration.

You know the stakes.

We cannot defeat ISIS alone. “
But we cannot do this alone.
We cannot defeat ISIS alone.
The terrorist group will find a home in the United States and the world if it can’t find sanctuary in the streets of our cities.
We must work to make sure that the millions of Americans who are now refugees and who are otherwise on their way to safety are not left behind, that those who have already come into our country and are already our citizens are not turned away, and that those in this country who are seeking to travel abroad and do so legally are not barred from coming to the United
