US PRESIDENT DONALD Trump delivered his first State of the Union address last night.

Trump congratulated himself for helping to improve the American economy and declared himself a champion of the American worker.

The president heralded “a new American moment” in his address. He spoke about a bounce in the stock market and the need for much tighter immigration controls to improve domestic security.

Trump has a historically low approval rating for a US president, with polls putting his support at 40%. However, he inspires fierce loyalty in his base, with many Americans satisfied with the job he is doing.

After a year of political disputes, attacks on the media, investigations into Russian interference, growing numbers of jobs and an improving economy, the question is whether Trump is doing a good job.

Today we’re asking: Has Donald Trump been a good president for the US?
