Good Trump, Bad Trump: US president touts unity... and divisive immigration plan

Latest update : 2018-01-31

By François PICARD

"Tonight I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground". It's not always what you hear from Donald Trump, but he did use those words in his State of the Union address. Trump's overture came before a Congress where a battle now awaits on immigration. Will the nativist core of his electorate drive the agenda on selected immigration, curbs on welcoming family members of migrants... and closing the border on more than people but also on free trade arrangements?
