US President Donald Trump has hit a 50% approval rating off the back of his unifying State of the Union speech.
He sought to reach out this week at the SOTU by saying: “I stand here ready to work with you to achieve historic breakthroughs for all Americans. Millions of our fellow citizens are watching us now, gathered in this great chamber, hoping that we will govern not as two parties but as one nation.”
Trump’s State of the Union speech received a 76% approval rating from those watching, with 72% backing his tough approach on immigration.
