  • President Trump delivered his State of the Union address earlier this week, which was favorably received by 75 percent of those who watched it.
  • Campus Reform went to John Jay College in New York City to find out what students thought of some choice Trump quotes...which were actually from Barack Obama's State of the Union addresses.
  • On Tuesday, President Donald Trump gave his first State of the Union address. While the speech was received favorably by 75 percent of those who watched, according to a CBS poll, there were still those who disapproved.

    Campus Reform headed to John Jay College in NYC to talk to students who disapproved of the speech by asking them to react to a few select quotations. Almost unanimously, the students found each of the quotes to be “warmongering”, “aggressive,” and “immature.”

    "[Trump] should, like, you know, mind his own business and, like, just focus on America because he's the President of the United States, not the whole world."   

    What the students didn’t know was that all the quotes given to them were taken from President Obama’s State of the Union addresses.

    How would they react when they found out it was President Obama, not Trump, who had spoken each of the quotes they disapproved of?
