WGBH’s Greater Boston, “President Trump Preaches Unity, Critics Cry Division,” January 31, 2018
Donald Trump’s first State of the Union was half victory lap, half stories of acts of heroism. In the end, 75 percent of people who watched the speech approved of it, according to a new CBS News poll.
The theme they heard throughout was one of unity, but not everyone was buying it — and, in America these days, it’s all about where the rubber meets the road.
Jim Braude was joined by two people who were in the audience for the speech — Rasky Partners, Jessica Beeson Tocco Senior Vice President, who was a guest of the White House, and Carbonite President and CEO Mohamad Ali, who was a guest of Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA).
