We're getting word that the address will run about 30 minutes, but less is more.  It may be raining, and 20 minutes would probably be the best presentation.

George Washington's second Inaugural address was less than five minutes, as the old general didn't really have a lot to say at that point.

But Mr. Trump does have a lot to say because he is in a unique position.  There are powerful forces in America committed to destroying him.

And the national media is a big part of that quest.

So Talking Points believes that tomorrow President Trump should not only say what his vision for America is, but why he feels his policies will help the folks.

The only way to overcome the hatred arrayed against him is to communicate directly to the people.

A new Fox News poll asked, does Donald Trump listen to people like you?

Forty percent say Trump does a good job in that regard.

Fifty percent a bad job.

So the more the new president can direct his remarks to the folks, the stronger his position will be.

And on that note, I have changed my opinion.  I used to think all this Tweeting hurt Donald Trump.

But now it's a necessity because he can expect to be attacked every day.

He must have a rapid defense mechanism in his own words, and Twitter provides that.

Now, as for Trump's message, it has to be economic based -- how to improve the financial situation for hard working Americans.

All of his domestic policies have to revolve around that theme, and he has to connect them in his address tomorrow.

For example, if you're going to crack down on border security, say why, explain how that will help Americans make a better living.

If you're going to knock out a bunch of environmental regulations, specifically say how that will improve the country.

It will not be enough for Donald Trump just to proclaim, he will have to explain.

In the past there have been some very interesting statements made by new presidents. Here you go:

REAGAN: “It's not my intention to do away with government. It is rather to make it work--work with us, not over us; to stand by our side, not ride on our back.”

((EDIT))

GEORGE W. BUSH: The enemies of liberty and our country should make no mistake: America remains engaged in the world by history and by choice, shaping a balance of power that favors freedom.”

((EDIT))

JFK: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

The sad fact is that no matter what Donald Trump says, tomorrow in his address it will not be accepted by those who despise him.

But again, he can overcome that opposition if he talks directly to the people and if he emerges as their champion through policy success.

And that's the memo
