TONIGHT WE DISCUSS: Did the Presdient change your mind last night?

Gone from his speech to a joint session of Congress were the lengthy attacks on media and Democratic opponents. Missing was the gloom-and-doom warnings of "American carnage" from his inaugural address. And while he didn't deliver a ton of policy specifics, Trump smoothed his rough edges, soothed congressional Republicans and reached out to populations he'd previously alienated. The Best moment of the night 

The most stirring moment of Trump's speech -- and his presidency -- came when he spoke directly to Carryn Owens, the widow of Navy Chief William "Ryan" Owens, who was killed in the military raid in Yemen that Trump ordered shortly after taking office.

Trump said "Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero." Then, he defended the value of intelligence gained on the raid.

"Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity," the President said.

Trump led a 2-minute, 11-second standing ovation as Carryn Owens stood, crying and clasping her hands.
