Trump's speech to Congress; Increased spending on defense, the drug war and infrastructure. No change in social welfare spending other than ObamaCare repeal and replace and cutting back regulatory agencies like EPA but not nearly enough spending cuts to pay for the proposed spending increases. Pipeline construction will almost certainly make liberal use of eminent domain. Is strong vetting a precursor to real ID and civil liberties and privacy violations? Are Iran sanctions a first step toward war? The Yemen raid was a success?

Trump move for immediate restrictions on immigration from Islamic countries.
