President Donald Trump says he wants bipartisanship, but is it possible?

The president brought lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to their feet Tuesday night when he called for Congress to rebuild the nation's infrastructure system and make health care more affordable. "Many of us campaigned on the same core promises," President Donald Trump said Tuesday night. "We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction. 

"Tonight, I ask you to choose greatness." 

But the call for unity came amid a deep partisan divide. It followed a 35-day partial government shutdown, where the president and Republicans refused to agree on how to fund security along the southern border. And it came just as the Democratic-controlled Congress began to use its oversight power on the administration and Trump’s allies. 

Even the timing of the speech was contentious. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had uninvited the president from the date originally scheduled, Jan. 29, because of the shutdown. The president responded by canceling the military plane Pelosi planned to use hours before a trip to Afghanistan. When Trump finally came to the House chamber to give his speech, Democratic women were there in white to thank voters for putting them in the majority and to give a nod to women's suffrage.
