MARC THIESSEN: “And, most important, Pelosi and Schumer failed to use the one word that millions of Americans were longing to hear — compromise. But Trump did. That is why the president won the night. Schumer and Pelosi appealed to their base, while Trump made an effective appeal to persuadable Americans.”

I’m not sure how many people in the audience were persuadable, but Trump did seem to be talking about America, while Schumer and Pelosi seemed to be talking about federal employees. That they also tried to cover themselves by repeatedly praising “border security” adds to my sense that they know they’re losing on this issue.
