On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Wednesday, host Mark Levin lauded President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address as “absolutely outstanding,” “Reaganesque.”

“I thought the president’s speech, as I posted on my Facebook and Twitter sites, was outstanding, absolutely outstanding,” stated Mark Levin.

“But what the president said, in so many respects on so many issues, was so right on, and in a tone and with a temperament that was so appealing, that I concluded, and I conclude now that it was Reaganesque – that it was Reaganesque,” concluded Levin later in his show.

Mark Levin’s comments came after President Donald Trump spoke in front of a joint session of Congress with his first State of the Union Address.

Below is a transcript of Levin’s remarks from his show Wednesday:

“I thought the president’s speech, as I posted on my Facebook and Twitter sites, was outstanding, absolutely outstanding.

“That’s not to say I don’t disagree with him in some areas. Obviously, you know, I don’t support 11 million illegal aliens getting citizenship, which he does. I don’t support what was a one trillion, now a one and a half trillion-dollar infrastructure program. I think it is a massive boondoggle at a time when we should be husbanding our resources, cutting the debt for our children and grandchildren, and stop feeding from the public trough and pretend that it’s for a public safety and public well-being and transportation and all the rest. Enough is enough.

“But what the president said, in so many respects on so many issues, was so right on, and in a tone and with a temperament that was so appealing, that I concluded, and I conclude now that it was Reaganesque – that it was Reaganesque.

“I just thought it was a really special State of the Union speech. I’m not even big on these State of the Union speeches.

 

“And if you’re a conservative – but for the two aspects that I mentioned, as well as this family leave which he slipped in – you should be pleased with 90 percent of his speech. And that’s pretty d--- good.

“When he talks about faith now, you believe he’s a man of faith. When he talks about God, and he does frequently, you believe he’s a man who believes in God. And his actions show it.

“His support for the First Amendment and religious liberty, his support for the Second Amendment is earnest. It’s earnest with him.

“I know he was a Democrat. I know he was a liberal. But he’s not anymore.

“He doesn’t have to play games, and he’s not playing games.

“It was an exceptional speech, and I say that as a conservative.”
