Stacey Abrams: Georgia Democrat to respond to Trump State of the Union

Stacey Abrams, a Democrat who narrowly lost the Georgia governor race in 2018, is set to respond to President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech.

She will deliver a televised rebuttal after Mr Trump's joint address to Congress on 5 February. His speech was delayed due to the government shutdown.

The opposition party traditionally responds to the president's annual message directly after the speech.

The Democratic rising star tweeted on Tuesday she was "honoured".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is certainly an interesting choice, perhaps even brilliant in its trajectory on the part of the Democrats. She is bright, gifted in many ways, and a trail blazer, and I respect that greatly.

Having said that, however, I hope that she will really take notice of the truth in her rebuttal, about what President Trump promised he would do for this country, which he has not yet done, and where he may have lead this country astray, such as the US withdrawal from the P5+1 deal with Iran.

I also hope that there is a statistician in her camp, who can help her talk about the real unemployment numbers, as opposed to those from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which are consistently a compendium of lies, because of how those "unemployed" are counted.

Ms. Abrams, I have just given you a gift; please run with it.
